Floyd Mayweather has responded to UFC president Dana White’s $25 million offer to face Conor McGregor.
After White appeared on “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” to offer the boxing star a $25 million payday and pay-per-view share to fight the UFC lightweight champion, TMZ Sports caught up with Mayweather, who shared his thoughts on the proposed deal.
As you would probably expect, Mayweather could do nothing but laugh about the figure, calling White “a f****ing comedian.”
Here is Mayweather’s response to the insulting offer:

So there we have it.
If a Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight is ever going to happen, Dana White needs to get more serious with his offer or the duo will likely look at other options to make the fight come to fruition.
Of course, Mayweather could ultimately decide to stay retired rather than taking a fight that really has no benefit to him in the big picture.
