The two top names of the Mixed Martial Arts world arena have decided to face each other for one of the most exclusive combat sports events in the history. The event is scheduled on August 26th at T-mobile Arena, Las Vegas. Floyd Mayweather, who is also the richest sportsman of the year is expected to purse around staggering $100 Million and his challenger McGregor will be looking at around $75 Million in his purse, according to an estimate which is five times more than his any usual UFC fights.
McGregor has made Millions by endorsements and other revenues but has never made so much money by fighting in a match. Floyd Mayweather retired from the sport, but such a huge wallet in the event with 9 digits made him come back to the action.
While the estimates are probability, some of the sources claim that the purse could be 4 times more than the estimated.
