Dana White has just made some sensational comments regarding a potential MMA bout involving Floyd Mayweather…
When Conor McGregor’s boxing fight with Floyd Mayweather was first mooted back in the middle of 2016, the vast majority of pundits laughed at the outlandish nature of the rumours.
To even suggest that an MMA star would take on the greatest boxer of his generation inside the squared circle was beyond ludicrous. However, just over a year later, the very same pundits were trying to wrap their minds around what they had just witnessed in the ring.
Now, Dana White has started and even crazier frenzy with the 48-year-old announcing that he is in talks with Floyd Mayweather about a UFC deal
“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 sh-t 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.”
Talk of Mayweather making the move to mixed martial arts first surfaced when the fighter himself stated that he could do a billion dollar deal with the promotion while speaking on social media last week.
“If I want, I can go, I can come right back to the UFC, ” said Mayweather. “I can go fight in the Octagon. I can do a three or four fight deal in the Octagon and make a billion dollars.”
