The expected bout between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is not yet official, but the projected numbers explain why both sides are so excited to get something done.
UFC president Dana White, who is helping put the fight together, provided the latest breakdown.
"It depends on how much the fight sells," White said on The Herd with Colin Cowherd, via Shaun Al-Shatti of MMA Fighting. "And if the fight sells as well as I think it can, Floyd makes a little north of $100 (million) and Conor makes $75 (million)."
This is a big leap from when White initially offered each fighter $25 million to get it done, which Mayweather laughed off.

It also signifies the deal is closer to being done after months of back-and-forth from each side. White explained the next steps on The Herd.
"I think we get the McGregor side done in the next couple of days," he said, via Fox Sports. "And then I go lock myself in a room for a couple of days with team Mayweather and see what we can come up with."
Mayweather retired in 2015 with a 49-0 record but announced in March he would come out of retirement to face the UFC star in a boxing match.
