Floyd Mayweather provides definitive answer to UFC talk

Floyd Mayweather provides definitive answer to UFC talk

With Floyd Mayweather though, you can never second guess his next move. Mayweather vs. McGregor f*cking happened. "I'll fight whenever the (expletive) I want to fight".

After reports Wednesday that Floyd Mayweather was negotiating to fight in the UFC, the boxer who may or may not actually be retired appeared to shoot down that intriguing possibility.

UFC president Dana White revealed the MMA promotion is discussing a potential deal to bring the 40-year-old into the mixed-martial arts world.

Nate Diaz would last step into the octagon to face Conor McGregor for a second time, pocketing $2 million in the process.

Mayweather has now clarified his comments, insisting he only said he "could" do it if he wanted.

The 40-year-old then categorically ruled out any chance of fighting in the UFC, so fight fans will be glad that the insane talk is now over.

Yet when talk of a rematch with UFC star McGregor surfaced, the ring star reigned himself in and claimed he would only fight for a BILLION dollars.

"If I made over a billion dollars before, I could do it again", Mayweather told FightHype.

"If I choose to get in the octagon and fight - fight three fights, three or four fights, and then fight Conor McGregor in the octagon". I just said if I wanted to and what I could do.

Recently, there were rumors indicating that he could be taking on welterweight champion Tyron Woodley at December 30's UFC 219, but that fight never came to fruition. That's what I was saying. Could and would do is a different thing. Like legitimately. I texted him, I go 'Is Floyd really talking about fighting MMA?'

"I will make my decision when the time comes".

"We're interested in doing something with Floyd. I'm not going to do it, though".

Diaz said he's willing to return to the octagon and fight whomever the promotion wants.

Feel free to come to your own conclusion about the McGregor post, and whether or not it is about Mayweather, but the timing seems uncanny.
