Conor McGregor gives fighting advice, jabs Mayweather in Instagram video

Writing about the MMA star, Schwarzenegger said that McGregor is "more than a fighter, more than an athlete, more than a champion" and that his contagious energy has had the Terminator star "almost start shouting in an Irish accent" in the past - something we would love to see.

UFC president Dana White has acknowledged that a superfight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor is very likely, and in the beginning stages of planning. but says there's still a lot of work to go.

Incidentally, $100 million is the same projection White referenced for Mayweather Jr.'s purse during Wednesday's conversation with Cowherd.

'We haven't really gotten into that negotiation yet. "But he's just focusing on one thing at a time and right now it's Floyd Mayweather and I'm looking forward to that myself".

"The Notorious" firmly disagreed with that figure, and took the opportunity to warn Mayweather that he could turn to Manny Pacquiao as his opponent should the ex-pound for pound king decide against signing on the dotted line.

Conor McGregor has said that he will teach his unborn son to be a "free fighting world champion".

'He (Mayweather) feels like he's the A-side and he should get more of it.

"Floyd makes a little north of $100 [million] and Conor makes $75 [million]".

'Maybe the other side can't be done, but we'll see.

Floyd made a guaranteed $100 million purse in his fight against Manny Pacquiao in 2015. At UFC 202, McGregor earned $3 million in his reported payout and raked in several more millions in his PPV share.

It is understood Mayweather will get a guaranteed amount either way. The one thing that Nelson has noticed is that McGregor likes career escalation, going from Cage Warriors to the UFC, from the prelims to the main event, from becoming the featherweight champion to becoming a dual champion with the lightweight title as well.

The pair have been going back and forth for the best part of a year and all signs now point to the super-fight now going ahead.
