40-year-old Floyd Mayweather bragged that he could make a billion dollars by making the jump to UFC, and while his numbers may be off, UFC president Dana White seems open to the idea of Mayweather fighting inside a cage.
To make things even more confusing, Mayweather came out and said he was joking about the whole ordeal.
I said don't count anything out on him coming over to the UFC, that anything is possible.... "Listen, you guys know I was here, I did not believe that McGregor-Mayweather would happen and it did". It is Conor's fault he did Mayweather, but we chose to do the Mayweather fight and everybody gave a f--. "I actually have a meeting with those guys today - with (Floyd's) crew".
Instead, White says he's looking to put together boxing superfights (in addition to his UFC duties) involving some of the best pugilists in the world. starting with heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua.
Mata: just keep going
Although the Red Devils are touted as favourites going into the game, let us not forget that Jose Mourinho's side are now facing a slump of sorts.
Instead of competing under boxing rules, White would like to get a deal done that would see "Money" fight inside of his UFC Octagon.
Citing the windfall that the Dubliner received for his TKO loss to Floyd Mayweather, White is banking on McGregor getting bored of the fruits of his labour and itching to return to action. "It would probably be the biggest fight in UFC history and MMA history and that record wouldn't be broken for ten years".
He's the president, but if his WMG overlords want a massive money fight, they'll get GSP and McGregor in a room. We both knew what was going on. If whoever wins the Barboza-Khabib fight while we're trying to figure out this Conor mess, could end up fighting Tony Ferguson for the opportunity to fight Conor McGregor so we'll see. "The question is does he want to come back and do it?"
