Fertitta, the ex-UFC owner, says he supports Dana White’s plan to pay Mayweather $100 mil and McGregor $75 mil if they fight.
It’s never too much money. They deserve it. McGregor [will win] for sure. Conor’s a special guy. He’s different. Don’t underestimate him.
McGregor praises Fertitta.
I came up under Lorenzo Fertitta and the Fertitta regime. Nobody in the history of the fight game has come up as fast and as young as I have. I now, at 28 years of age, have my eyes firmly set on the ‘highest paid fighter’ and ‘highest earning athlete’ accolades. Understand and respect what you are witnessing here. Because not one of you can do nothing to stop it.
