Let’s put this into lists and keep it simple
- There is too much money to be made for McGregor and Manny not to do it. It won’t be the size of Mayweather, but it will still be a big enough spectacle.
- McGregor has the leverage with the UFC. They need him to headline cards. He is a massive star and Dana doesn’t like that he is stepping out of line.
- The UFC can’t pay their fighters enough or enough for McGregor to not flirt with boxing. That is why he took the boxing match.
- McGregor has again, ZERO chance of winning.
