The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released official purse for Saturday’s MayMac.

Main Card (PPV)
Floyd Mayweather Jr. ($100,000,000) vs. Conor McGregor ($30,000,000) for the only title that truly matters – richest man in combat sports
Gervonta Davis ($600,000) vs. Francisco Fonseca ($35,000)  for IBF belt
Nathan Cleverly ($100,000) vs. Badou Jack($750,000)  for WBF belt
Andrew Tabiti ($100,000) vs. Steve Cunningham ($100,000)  for USBA belt
Prelim Card (FOX)
Thomas Dulorme ($75,000) vs. Yordenis Ugas ($50,000)
Juan Heraldez ($12,500) vs. Jose Miguel Borrego ($5,000)
Kevin Newman ($7,500) vs. Antonio Hernandez ($7,000)
Savannah Marshall ($5,000) vs. Sydney LeBlanc ($3,500)

The sums for Mayweather and McGregor are expected to roughly triple when the PPV is added in. While boxing is believed to have larger purses than MMA, over half the FOX prelims made less than the UFC minimums. And UFC cards tend to have 12 or 13 fights, rather than the eight bouts that are common in boxing. Besides the main event. Badou Jack made a notable $750,000, and Gervonta Davis made $750,000 to win via illegal blow to the back of the head.
