Conor McGregor wants ‘commission owed’ from Manny Pacquiao vs. Yordenis Ugas fight

New, 10 comments

Conor McGregor feels entitled to a “commission” from Saturday’s Manny Pacquiao vs. Yordenis Ugas fight.

In late June, Paradigm Sports Management sued eight-division boxing champion, Manny Pacquiao, for breach of contract. Pacquiao, who signed with Paradigm in early 2020, was accused of booking the would-be Errol Spence fight without the company’s involvement.

In turn, Paradigm wanted $3.3 million which Pacquiao supposedly received in advance. Unfortunately for them, a judge denied the injunction early this month. The fight subsequently pushed through on Saturday, but Spence was replaced by WBA welterweight champion Yordenis Ugas.

The breach of contract lawsuit remains active, and Paradigm’s star client Conor McGregor feels he is owed a percentage from the Pacquiao-Ugas fight. “The Notorious” released this tweet on Sunday night. And judging by his recent social media activities, this will likely be deleted soon.

“I’m owed commission off that manny fight and I want it,” McGregor wrote.

It’s not clear whether or not McGregor has an ownership stake at Paradigm, but he also made a recent claim about collecting commissions from some of Michael Bisping’s fights, who was also under that management stable. The two have also been trading barbs with each other online.
