An astounding 42% of nearly 63,000 voters say they'd pay $100 for Mayweather-McGregor.
If that's the case, prepare for PPV to be $125. pic.twitter.com/nwN5HYRB2K

In 4 years, Conor McGregor went from making 8K/8K in first UFC fight to winning 2 titles to getting fight booked vs Floyd Mayweather. Insane
