Conor McGregor’s huge paycheck for his boxing match with Floyd Mayweather could mean more money for his future UFC opponents — at least that’s what Nate Diaz’s boxing coach Richard Perez is hoping for.

Diaz’s last two fights under the UFC banner were against “The Notorious” in 2016, and he made $2.6 million dollars in disclosed pay in those bouts combined. After seeing what McGregor made against Mayweather, and the potential money that could be made in a trilogy bout with McGregor in the UFC, Perez expects 10 times more.

This only seems ridiculous because we are all so used to seeing much smaller payouts in MMA. If we take some bs math we can see how off it is. For example champ A defends against fighter B and sells a million ppvs, the disclosed purse is say super fucking large so like a million a piece. Now at $50 a pop what does the UFC do with the other $48 million? That is just fast hard math...even after paying for event sit and TV sit they are left with absolute as tons of money that is recorded as a profit...the fighters get just that $1 mil. There is no reason these guys shouldn't be rich, plain and simple. Every other major sports players in the world are fucking millionaires, ours should be too.

I hate to seem like that filthy casual, but I would actually buy the ppv if this were on it. Mostly because I think Nate takes the rematch and I'd love to see Conor knocked down a peg

Ehhhh, I'd rather see Conor defend a belt first.

Nate is just being a smart business man, just like Conor has been.

Hopefully it would be for the belt too, since ya know Conor needs to fight him at 155, even though Nate has fought pretty much his entire career there.

Conor would get a max of $15 million.

Nate, maybe 5 or 6.

If the fight was Conor vs GSP at 170, I could see $20M and $15M.
