UFC stars discuss Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor.

Several MMA stars from UFC 213 weighed in on the upcoming match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor. They discussed who they think would win, who they would root for, and more interestingly, if they would shell out $100 to pay for the pay-per-view.

UFC bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes: “No. (laughs) No! May I can go somewhere, but... (laughs)”

Justin Gaethje: “Hell no! For a hundred dollars?? I’m not buying it.”

Alistair Overeem: “I’m definitely going to buy it. It’s huge to me. I was hoping that the fight would come through, expecting it to come through. You never know what’s going to happen in that fight. I was very pleased to see the news of a multi-city tour. They’re both gentlemen and it’s going to be great entertainment. I can’t wait.”

Michael Johnson: “It’s like everybody (will) pay $100 to watch MMA and boxing go at it, (but) I’m damn for sure not paying for it. They both win! Shit, they’re getting that much money, who cares if one of them loses?”

No official PPV price has been announced just yet, but many expect it to be close to that cost of the previous Pacquiao vs Mayweather bout.
