Show Money 19: Are Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor about to show us the money?

The Show Money crew is back to spew their sometimes educated, sometimes random theories on the only show exclusively dedicated to the business of MMA.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

The Show Money crew is Paul the economist, Jason the lawyer, and John the man who knows everyone and everything in MMA. In today’s episode, the guys discuss the promotion of the Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight and updated predictions on PPV buys (with a John Nash rant thrown in for good measure), the supposed 70/30 Mayweather/McGregor split and 70/30 McGregor/UFC split, thoughts on Zuffa Boxing, the Nevada Athletic Commission’s (NAC) behavior, and the future impact on the UFC and MMA.

Fight promotion and final PPV predictions – 0:26
Supposed 70/30 splits – 18:28
