Floyd Mayweather's Coach Reveals Conor McGregor's Sneaky £1.2 Million Trick
The retired UFC superstar fought Mayweather in a lucrative boxing bout in Las Vegas back in August 2017.
McGregor, with his MMA team in his corner, lost to 'Money' as he suffered a 10th round stoppage defeat.
But the Irishman could have had one of Mayweather's coaches in his corner for their cross-code clash.
Nate Jones says McGregor's people called him in the weeks before the fight and offered him $1.5 million (£1.2 million) to be in his team.
"Floyd don't know this but I got a call from Conor McGregor's people to work his corner for that fight - and I hung up on them," he told FOX Sports. "They offered me $1.5m (£1.2m) but I hung up on them.
"I got a call from Montell Griffin and he said, 'people want to holler at you Nate, they're McGregor's people.'
"And they called and I'm like, 'what's up?' They was like, 'man, he interested in you being in the corner. We'll pay you $1.5m (£1.2m) - whatever you want, mention what you want.' And I hung up."

Jones continued by revealing how nervous McGregor was right before walking out to the ring.
"When McGregor wrapped his hands, we sent a representative which was me. And I've never seen someone so nervous in my life," he added.
"That's the part of the fight that shocked me the most because going into the fight, McGregor was talking a lot of smack.
"In the locker room getting ready to fight, he was very shook. He went to the washing room six times. Six times. I was like, 'what is wrong with this dude?'"
