“They don’t know the numbers of McGregor vs Floyd. I have never with my own eyes witnessed a sporting event lied about more than the level of business that was McGregor vs Floyd. I was at the venue, personally. It did not sell out. I got my mother’s ticket the day of the fight – it wasn’t sold out, guys. That’s the truth nobody wants to talk about. The reason they didn’t rematch those guys is they didn’t win the first time, and I’m not looking to embarrass anyone’s business, two people went for it. I’m just sharing with you, Fury vs Ngannou, is not close to Mayweather vs McGregor, and that wasn’t close to what you were told it was. That’s the truth.”

It may take a long time for the facts to be revealed on the Mayweather-UFC co-promoted boxing match. Chael Sonnen may have just started an interesting story on the boxing vs MMA matches.
