Floyd Mayweather Reportedly Considering Fighting Conor McGregor In UFC

Amid the Irishman's continued hiatus from his own sport - he hasn't appeared since winning the lightweight title at UFC 205 - it would appear he has his eyes fixed firmly on fighting Mayweather again.

White stated that the only way this rematch makes sense if it happens inside of the Octagon. According to boxing journalist Gareth A Davies, the negotiations are ongoing and he believes we're going to see the two go head to head in an MMA match.

If the deal was done, it would be a far more interesting spectacle than last year's boxing match; not only because Mayweather would make a foray into the UFC, but also because it would be stretched out over three or four matches, and fans would get more bang for their buck. Obviously the only way making that fight again makes any sense is if he comes into the Octagon.

'People will tune in to see Mayweather get stopped by Conor McGregor and it won't affect his boxing record.

Mayweather, an undefeated five-division world boxing champion, teased at a potential MMA showdown with McGregor after he stepped inside a martial arts cage last month. I can go fight in the Octagon.

"I can come right back", Mayweather said during an Instagram live video.

The big, big money is going to be in another faceoff with Mayweather, but convincing him to step into the Octagon could be easier said than done.

Perhaps most galling, his application to register "Conor McGregor" is being opposed in the E.U.by a Dutch fashion company that already holds the trademark "McGregor" for clothing and accessories.

Mayweather came out of retirement to face McGregor and immediately retired again after their bout. UFC president Dana White stoked the flames when he told Joe Rogan that Mayweather had engaged in serious discussions with the UFC about a fight.
