Dana White Says Floyd Mayweather Is In Talks For A UFC Fight

Conor McGregor made the switch to boxing for this year's superfight against Floyd Mayweather, and now Floyd is interested in doing the same thing. Mayweather versus McGregor f-- happened.

Logic and the fight business seldom go hand in hand but this could be up there for one of the most far-fetched ideas ever.

"Floyd talked about it".

Like legitimately. I texted him, I go 'Is Floyd really talking about fighting MMA?' He goes 'Yeah, he's f**king insane.

With White's optimism and Floyd's possibility of gaining a billion dollars, it is likely that a UFC fight between McGregor and Mayweather will become a possibility, especially since Floyd has expressed earnest interest in making it a reality, and according to White, anything Floyd talks about comes to life.

"If I want, I can go, I can come right back to the UFC, I can go fight in the octagon", Mayweather said.

The comments come just days after Mayweather claimed that he was offered $1 billion for a potential multi-fight deal with the brand. "He usually tips his hand when he's in the media and then that shit ends up happening". "I can come right back". "Dana told me that Floyd wants to make a deal in the UFC". While fight fans still think the possibility of such a fight is a long-shot, he noted that many thought the same of Mayweather's last fight as well. However, he suggested in a social media video that he could sign with UFC.

As he makes all of us aware on a regular basis, Floyd Mayweather has earned an very bad lot of money during his illustrious boxing career.

"I can go and do a three or four-fight deal in the octagon and make a billion dollars". White told ESPN that global pay-per-view buys settled around 6.5 million. McGregor's next move is still uncertain, although the fighter has hinted at a return to MMA in various interviews. And I say "almost" only because the McGregor-Mayweather boxing fight actually happened.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission sanctioned a boxing match, but it would be much harder to justify sanctioning an MMA fight, where Mayweather would face an even greater disadvantage than McGregor did in the ring.
