Despite his success in the UFC mixed martial arts promotion, Conor McGregor maintained an interest in boxing competitively again, and entertained the idea of a “money fight”. Mayweather reportedly talked to Freddie Roach to train McGregor for the fight in case it will happen.
UFC president Dana White dismissed the rumours of a fight with Mayweather on The Dan Patrick Show, stating that Floyd would have to contact him since Conor was under contract with the UFC. White even went as far as stating, “Here’s what I think the chances are (of the fight happening): About the same of me being the backup quarterback for Brady on Sunday,” referring to Super Bowl LI.
In January 2017, it was reported that the two parties had entered an “exploratory phase” in negotiating a potential match between Mayweather and McGregor. On The Herd with Colin Cowherd, White openly offered to pay Mayweather $25 million to hold the proposed bout during a UFC event. He also predicted that pay-per-view viewership of the hypothetical bout could possibly rival Mayweather vs. Pacquiao. Labelled “The Money Fight”, Mayweather Vs McGregor is likely to be the largest PPV event in history.
On March 7, 2017, Mayweather called upon McGregor to “sign the paper” and “make it happen”, arguing that “if Conor McGregor really wants this fight to happen, stop blowing smoke up everybody’s ass.” On March 10, 2017, Floyd stated that only a fight with Conor would make him come out of retirement.
On March 16, 2017, Dana White backpedaled on his stance against the bout and said that he would not deprive McGregor in making a massive payday. On May 18, 2017, McGregor reportedly agreed to all of Mayweather’s updated terms and signed the contract.
