Well some crazy rumors going around that Floyd Mayweather is actually considering giving MMA a try. I guess anything really is possible. We saw James Toney give it a try back at UFC 118 against Randy Couture, that didn’t work out to well. Check out some quotes about this story.
“We’re talking to Floyd about doing a UFC deal,” White said. “It’s real. He was talking about [boxing] Conor McGregor. Was that real? Have you heard Floyd talk about many things that aren’t real? He usually tips his hand when he’s in the media and then that shit ends up happening.”
White went on to say more “We’re interested in doing something with Floyd. Everything is a realistic possibility. Mayweather versus McGregor fucking happened. Anything is possible.”
Joe Rogan also made some comments on his podcast about this too
“Dana told me that Floyd wants to make a deal in the UFC. Like legitimately” Rogan revealed on his latest MMA Podcast. ” So I texted him ” Is Floyd really talking about fighting MMA? He goes yeah he’s fucking crazy, I told him he’d get killed but he’s still talking about doing it”
Floyd had this to say “I can come right back. If I wanted to I could come right back to the UFC. I can go fight in the Octagon. I can go do a three or four-fight deal in the Octagon and make a billion dollars. Remember I’m Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather.”
