Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

It is no secret that Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather are fighting primarily because of the money they will make. For McGregor, it is also an opportunity to become a crossover star; if, in all possible realities, we enter the one in which McGregor somehow bests Floyd Mayweather, he stands to become the most famous combat sports athlete of our time. For Mayweather, this fight is simply the least risk for the most monetary reward. It is solely about the dollars for “Money” Mayweather.

And dollars he will be making. MMAFighting.com revealed the purse sizes for this colossal fight. McGregor will be officially making ten times his previous, UFC-record fight purse, a whopping 30 million dollars. Mayweather receives over three times that amount, his minimum payout equaling 100 million dollars. Of course, both fighters will make much more than that, once ticket sales, Pay-Per-View buys, concessions, sponsorship money and merchandise is factored in. McGregor estimated his earnings to be in the hundred million dollar range; Mayweather could easily make over a quarter million.

Of course, no one else on the card is making anything close to that kind of money.

Here’s the purse info from the NSAC. Floyd getting 100 million, Conor getting 30 million. #MayMac pic.twitter.com/twvBE2WGnE

Nick Diaz has a point

I see no reason to face off in your drawers Especially when you’re opponent had time to get dressed after he was the second one out

McGregor already beat the Mountain so I’m sure the Hound can

There is a prop bet on @BovadaLV for Mayweather vs. McGregor combined with a possible Clegane Bowl on @GameOfThrones. Best of both worlds. pic.twitter.com/ukDKRsByBr
