Mayweather Seriously Considering UFC Bout With McGregor

Mayweather Seriously Considering UFC Bout With McGregor

UFC president Dana White stoked the flames when he told Joe Rogan that Mayweather had engaged in serious discussions with the UFC about a fight.

Whether or not Mayweather is just getting people excited for a crossover to MMA that will never happen or he's actually contemplating the challenge of facing McGregor on his home turf, White doesn't seem to hate the idea of putting this fight back together again.

Still, considering the gaudy amount of money the boxing match between Mayweather and McGregor made past year, it's impossible to ignore the possibility of a rematch happening.

"We went over and boxed him, the UFC and Conor McGregor, and now it's time for him to reciprocate and come and fight in the Octagon".

"I think it's going to happen and I think it will be a three, four, five hundred million dollar fight again", he said.

"Conor McGregor had no chance in a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather".

Bisping added: 'You take him down you pass guard and you elbow the f*** out of his face in about 35 seconds, you fight a boxer [like Mayweather] you take him down'.

Mayweather stopped UFC kingpin McGregor in the 10th round of an eye-wateringly lucrative boxing bout in Las Vegas in August 2017 and talk of a possible rematch to "The Money Fight' has predictably bubbled away ever since".

He tried to file this name for trademark shortly after his fight with Floyd Mayweather.

"I can come right back", Mayweather said during an Instagram live video.

Mayweather, who turns 41 later this month, would be making his MMA debut if he was to join the UFC.

Davies disagrees, however, citing the enormous payday potentially on offer.

And it's since been mooted that the two could fight again - but this time in an MMA contest.
