The reported prices being touted to companies who want to be associated with the August 26th superfight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather are already reaching crazy levels.

ESPN have got their hands on a document from WME-IMG, the talent agency who own the UFC, that contains proposals sent to companies who may want to be involved in the fight which is sure to attract a hell of a lot of eyeballs.

The fee to be the top sponsor, with your brand's logo on the middle of the ring mat, ropes and two neutral corners is $10m (€8.7m).

The previous record was the $6.5m beer company Tecate paid to be the top dog for the Mayweather/Pacquiao bout.

The top sponsor also gets to sponsor the first minute of each round and they get $500,000 in tickets too.

But if you have a ton of money and just want to back the Dubliner you can sponsor Conor's corner for $5m (4.3m) which gets your brand logo on his corner, logo on the corner cam and $250,000 of tickets.

Floyd's corner is also available for the same fee and if they all are achieved then just the sponsorship alone will bring in a cool $20m before a ticket or PPV is sold.
