Conor McGregor doesn't think Ryan Garcia and Gervonta Davis should bet their purses this weekend.
"Let's do it the whole purse," Garcia said when challenged by Davis to put it all on the line. "You hear me on the live, let's go, let's make a contract, let's sign it, both of us."
"Has any competing fighters bet their purse against each other and then followed thru?" he tweeted on Wednesday. "We should stop doing this. Fighting is tough. It can go anyway. Luck plays a hell of a part. Don’t be saying you are betting your fight purse against each other. Because it never happens. And it’s stupid. Train hard. Fight hard. Earn your dough. And then enjoy it. God bless."
McGregor then explained why he would never make the same bet for his own fights.
"I make substantially more than everyone on the roster combined so it’s not feasible," he tweeted. "I could bet a portion however. But it’s ridiculous, and no. This game, and the longer you are in it, gets tougher and tougher. I’m keeping my hard earned money for my loved ones."
McGregor steps back into the cage sometime this year when he takes on Michael Chandler for The Ultimate Fighter finale.
