But that doesn’t mean there’s not another way for Conor to get what he wants. Speaking to TMZ, Mark Wahlberg said he’ll happily sell Conor a piece of his stake in the UFC if he “cuts the check.” Marky Mark adds that he’s “the face of the UFC right now”

Marky Mark apparently isn’t a man of his word. Two years after Mark Wahlberg offered to sell some of his stake in the UFC to fighter Conor McGregor, the actor/musician is backing down on said offer.

Wahlberg initially told McGregor back in 2016 that he would sell the former champion some of his stake in the organization after Conor complained about being underpaid following a victory over Nate Diaz.

Something changed between then an now — namely the $100 million payday McGregor earned from his bout against Floyd Mayweather in Vegas last August.

Conor McGregor is constantly talking about that he deserves a piece of ownership stake in UFC . While getting some of that stake from White will likely never happen, Mark Wahlberg , who happens to own a small percentage himself, said he is willing to give McGregor a piece of his but only if he’s

Wahlberg is now reneging on the offer.

When asked by TMZ Sports if he was still willing to sell McGregor a piece of the UFC, Wahlberg answered with an emphatic no.

Instead of using Conor’s recent arrest in Brooklyn as a reasoning for this, Wahlberg made it clear that this has more to do with the fighter’s otherworldly net worth right now.

Yeah, that actually makes a lot of sense. Besides, we’re not even sure UFC head Dana White and Co. would even allow McGregor to own a minority stake in the organization after his recent antics.
