“We’re talking to Floyd about doing a UFC deal,” White told ESPN. “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 s— ends up happening.
“We’re interested in doing something with Floyd. Everything is a realistic possibility. Mayweather vs. McGregor f—ing happened. Anything is possible.”
This was in response to Floyd saying that he could make a billion dollars fighting in the UFC which is somehow the most incredible and insane claim made by anyone involved in this rumor. Mayweather reiterated that absurd claim on Wednesday while explaining that he wasn’t going to sign with the UFC.
Meanwhile, the UFC should probably focus on getting Conor McGregor to return to the octagon. He’s now been gone from the sport for 13 months and made more money in one night boxing than he ever would have in the UFC.
