Floyd Mayweather responded to Dana White’s offer of $25 million to fight Conor McGregor in a boxing match by sticking his watch out of the window of his car and scoffing at the offer.
Mayweather then said White was a “f***ing comedian.”
Now, the UFC boss has responded with some comments of his own in an interview with TMZ Sports.

The possibility of McGregor and Mayweather meeting in the ring has started to gain traction as of late. All of the elements seem to be coming together and the fight looks more and more likely as time goes on.
What started with a kind of “could you imagine?” scenario, has not gotten down to the nitty-gritty dollars and cents negotiations.
McGregor was granted a license to box in California in 2016 and is currently not training for a fight in the Octagon while his girlfriend is pregnant with their first child.
It seems likely that McGregor is gearing up for a boxing match against Mayweather, should one come to fruition. Mayweather has taken a position in which he isn’t interested in any fight that will not guarantee him at least nine figures.
