Watch: Dana White Confirms The UFC's Offer To Both Mayweather & McGregor

Watch: Dana White Confirms The UFC's Offer To Both Mayweather & McGregor
By Mikey Traynor Updated

Well, it looks like the wheels are in motion, and Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather could soon be a reality.

We heard on Wednesday that Mayweather had made an offer to McGregor which would see the Irishman earn $15m as the 'B side' to Floyd's $100m purse, which he claimed is his number to make the fight happen, as the 'A side'.

We heard nothing from McGregor, or the UFC, about that offer likely because McGregor almost certainly would not tolerate earning so much less than his opponent, but today Dana White has spoken to Colin Howard and confirmed that they are exploring the possibility of making this fight happen.

Ariel Helwani tweeted earlier in the day that Mayweather vs McGregor was now more than a PR stunt, as he seemingly got word that White would soon be making an announcement.

And sure enough, Dana was a surprise guest on 'The Herd' with Colin Cowherd, where he reveled that an offer had been put in to both men.

There is no way that Mayweather accepts a $25m purse, even with a PPV split. Surely?

Dana also claimed that no offer was made by Mayweather to anyone, so perhaps Dana is merely calling the boxer's bluff, we won't know until we hear more from all parties.

It's all up in the air, but it very much does look like everyone involved is now actively trying to make this fight happen, or at least put it to bed once and for all if the financials cannot be agreed.

We will bring you more on this as it breaks.
