Get ready for the hype to start kicking off big time because McGregor is heading for Vegas. After an extended and not always relaxing spell back in Ireland, he's on his way to the west coast of America and he's leaving with a very important message. He's going to get PAID.
McGregor has been speaking about his next contract quite a bit recently and it's no surprise that he's looking for big numbers from the organisation. He has 'nine figures' in mind and we can only assume this kind of message is directed at Dana White and anyone else who holds the purse strings.
Leaving Ireland today for the West Coast. To unify my belt and spearhead the unprecedented $90-100million dollar UFC 194 event. This event along with UFC 189 putting me at close to $200million dollars in revenue generated for this company. All in less than 6months. I am not a company man. I am the company.
If he does go and unify those belts, it's going to be very difficult for White to try and keep McGregor's demands down to where he'd like them.
