Floyd Mayweather Jr. retired from boxing after defeating Conor McGregor in August to advance his professional record to 50-0.
But while Mayweather racked in the money and is enjoying his early retirement, he recently made comments that have raised eyebrows in the mixed martial arts community. Is a rematch with Conor McGregor in the UFC possible? It doesn’t seem likely, but Mayweather hinted it could be on the table if he decided to.
During a live stream on Instagram, Mayweather said he has a billion dollar, multi-fight deal.
“You already know I’m a money-getting motherf**ker,” Mayweather said.
“I’m Money May. They just called me not too long ago and asked me to come back. I can come right back. If I want to, I can come right back to the UFC. I can go fight in the Octagon. I can do a three- or four-fight deal in the Octagon and make a billion dollars. Remember, I’m Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather, and you motherf**kers love me, and I love you mother**kers.”
Despite his claims, it seems far-fetched that Mayweather would ever enter the Octagon, especially at 40 years old with no experience.
However, if there is one thing we know about Mayweather — and McGregor for that matter — it is that they both like to chase the money and Mayweather vs. McGregor 2 inside of the Octagon would certainly fit the bill.
