McGregor Furiously Lashes Out At Showtime Boss In Mayweather PPV Dispute

  • Showtime Sports Prez To White: We Can't Release Fake Numbers!

When examined in that light, it seems like White was looking for some inflated numbers to tout publicly as UFC owners Endeavor look to pay back the loans outstanding on their July 2016 purchase of the MMA leader, which is now floundering without any true stars outside of McGregor, whom they let compete in a boxing ring for his only fight of 2017.

It's clear that time is ticking for McGregor though and White gave a firm deadline for defending his title if he doesn't want to be stripped of the belt.

Now in the aftermath of that event where Showtime recently put out a press release stating that Mayweather vs. McGregor did 4.3 million pay-per-view buys in North America - making it the second biggest pay-per-view in history - White isn't buying their numbers or the validity of how the fight actually sold that night.

He added: "So Conor has some big decisions to make here, really quick".

Common sense would dictate that McGregor's comeback fight would come in a unification bout against Ferguson but, as we've learned, common sense is a rarity in the sport of mixed martial arts.

"But I think you have to rank McGregor first because he has gone in there and he has beaten the best opposition of any of the three of them". "Who gives a f-k about the North American numbers when we are the GLOBAL KINGS you shmuck".

And his last fight was in a boxing ring against Floyd Mayweather Jr in August a year ago when he lost in the 10th-round via a TKO.

"Tony Ferguson has been around for a long time and has earned his dues, Khabib [Nurmagomedov] has earned his dues and the list goes on and on".

"As long as Conor is willing to fight by March, we could do Khabib versus Tony and then the victor fights Conor for the title", White told Yahoo Sports. "But I would say, Conor 1, Khabib 2, Tony 3". Some believe Nurmagomedov could be next for McGregor, if not at least a shot at the interim title with Ferguson. "But the belt has to move on, so we've gotta figure some stuff out about him in the next couple of months". Sports. "Or, if Conor wants to sit out until next fall, then we'd have to make Khabib vs".

"Amanda Nunes wants to fight Cyborg", White said.
