A small maybe is the ufc did hold some money until his next octogon appearance which everyone including Conor and Dana were pretty confident it was going to be before the end of last year. 

They were always going to have trouble getting him to fight for 10mill after the Floyd fight and are definitely smart enough to put that in his contract.

 

Also l think the Floyd fight was a 3 way co- promotion. 

I'm not sure what the promotion arrangement actually was.....Mayweather Promotions and Showtime are two definites, but the 3rd is unclear. Originally Zuffa said they were going to help promote from behind the scenes....then they applied and were granted a license to be a promoter for the event....because as Bob Bennett explained, Mayweather promotions couldn't pay the opponent under nsac rules, so Zuffa had to be involved....

 

But when you watch the actual fight, Zuffa isn't mentioned anywhere as an official promoter in the introductions, it's just Mayweather, Showtime and MGM resorts lol

honestly, conor probably got fucked. the savy businessman ideas stop at those monkey suits he wears to press junkets..beyond that he is just another middle of the road dolt, like you and i

Ran into a MMA promotor at the Del Lago Casino playing ultimate Texas hold em.    He said the real beef between Connor McGregor and the UFC/WME is the fact that the UFC still owes Connor 50 million from the Mayweather fight.    As the promoter for Connor McGregor the UFC got paid Connor's end and the UFC has to cut a check to Connor which the UFC has failed to do in full.   Has anyone else heard this rumor?

If that’s the “real beef” between Conor and the UFC what’s the fake beef?

 

I don’t know if there’s an employer/employee relationship more loving than Conor/UFC.

 

Now that I’ve learned the “real beef” I’m dying to know the fake beef.

 

Being that Conor was paid by CBS/Showtime and he was only guaranteed 30 million for the fight pre PPV cut.  I’ve got to hear the math on how he’s owed 50 million from the UFC

Conor McGregor Made 'Around' $100 Million for Floyd Mayweather Fight, Knows He Would Win Rematch

 

Trent Reinsmith ,   CONTRIBUTOR

 

McGregor was guaranteed $30 million for the boxing match, while Mayweather was guaranteed $100 million. When asked what he actually took home for the bout, McGregor paused before being asked if he cleared a rumored $100 million once all the revenue streams were counted.

 

"It's around that. We're still in the counting game,” said McGregor. “Some people are saying it’s this. Other people are saying it’s that. You know, you get your show money and then you gather all your other information – the gate, the pay-per-view, the sponsorship revenue, the merchandise sales. It’s my first time as a promoter of an event, so it’s my first time kind of diving into all of these things. I’m building a nice little team of auditors to make sure all these numbers people are telling me are correct.”

UFC Applying to Co-Promote Mayweather vs. McGregor Fight Through NAC

TIM DANIELS

AUGUST 11, 2017

 

The UFC officially filed an application with the Nevada Athletic Commission to co-promote the Aug. 26 boxing match between Conor McGregor, its lightweight champion, and Floyd Mayweather Jr. at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

 

On Friday, Marc Raimondi of MMA Fighting reported the NAC will hold a vote on whether to allow the UFC to formally promote the fight during an Aug. 16 meeting. The NAC executive director, Bob Bennett, told the outlet the move would also allow the promotion to pay McGregor for the event.

No

 

it was McGregor Sports and Entertainment 

That's cool, that's why I said it was unclear what the promotions were....especially when you go by what's  reported, the head of the NSAC's own words/rules and video from the fight....McGregor Sports and Entertainment wasn't announced at the fight, same with Zuffa, however MSE was on display at the press tour. From the link below...

 

“Floyd can’t pay his opponent,” Bennett said. “The UFC is a co-promoter, because they’ll be paying Conor. … Otherwise it would have been a conflict of interest — an opponent paying the other opponent.”

The rule comes from NAC 467.112 of its official regulations, which stipulates “a bout agreement which provides that an unarmed combatant is to pay for the services of his or her opponent is prohibited.”

Not saying it's the case here - but it's not uncommon in entertainment for managers and/or promoters to hold payments for a year or so to collect interest that they keep for themselves. Vultures everywhere.


If this is true I doubt Conor would have participated in Busgate.

UFC would not fuck with their cash cow.  It's their lifeline, AND their reputation at stake. 

OP you made that poser a happy man with your doughy eyed "omg really?" look when he tried to act like some insider to impress you

Doesn’t sound true at all. I think Conor would be raising a stink all over social media if he didn’t get paid his share. 

Nope.  He would have them in court like a big boy.

WME is a promotor but also a manager for fighters. that's illegal according to NSAC

Can’t see Conor signing to have money withheld for a fight he participated in contingent upon a future fight.  That’s lunacy.
