Referee: McGregor was guaranteed $10m

30 Apr, 2016

McCarthy says McGregor was guaranteed $10m for UFC 200.

I talked to Lorenzo Fertitta at UFC 197 standing in the back and we started talking. And he said, ‘I never thought that when I had a guy guaranteed $10 million I would have a problem.’ If you don’t think $10 million is a lot of money to make for a fight, you are crazy. That is life changing money. That hand in poker, he lost. That $10 million might not be $10 million the next time he fights because it’s not UFC 200.
