Minus Mayweather, McGregor is now the highest paid fighter in combat sports as well. He knew from the start he wasn't going to be troubled.
While Rogan concedes that in a boxing match most top UFC fighters would probably struggle against someone like Malignaggi, the flipside would be disastrous for the former champion turned color commentator. And while Waterson said she'd "love for McGregor to win" and "wouldn't put it past [him]", she continued, "on any given day, anyone can get rocked".
Max Markson, the agent of Floyd Mayweather in Australia, says that the latter has now changed his ways, and he is "a reformed character who deserves another chance".
Malignaggi was hired by McGregor to serve as a sparring partner.
"Sometimes, viewership grows 10 to 15 percent, and if you do the math, yeah, we could get pretty close to 5 [million]".
It was widely believed that Mayweather would win the fight given McGregor's lack of boxing experience, with some critics saying McGregor would not land a single punch.
The consensus around the world of online bookmakers is that this was an extremely profitable fight for all.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. blocks a punch from Conor McGregor during the first round of their fight at T-Mobile Arena, Saturday, Aug. 26, 2017, in Las Vegas. He has a flawless 50-0 (27 KOs) record over a career of more than 20 years. I haven't read anything about him but in my own writings for his last several bouts. Indeed, Hardy would've been unlikely to have any success by going straight into a fight with Nunes, for example.
Triple H recently spoke to ESPN's First Take where he discussed the big fight and how WWE's influence could be traced to many aspects of the big combat sporting event. Mayweather wanted a huge payday along with securing his 50th consecutive victory...and knew he was no longer capable of defeating any of the elite younger title holders. As for McGregor, he was looking for a monster payday that he couldn't get fighting in the octagon, so fighting a smaller boxer who hadn't fought in almost 800 days who was 40 fit the bill. When added all together the fight could generate some $600 million in total revenue, which would be along the lines of the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight.
In the weeks leading up to the Mayweather fight, there was a heated feud between McGregor and Malignaggi, who retired earlier this year.
