Dana White has admitted that the rumors about Floyd Mayweather discussing a deal with to fight in the UFC are true. Mayweather, White and Conor McGregor all made a lot of money off the dream boxing match this summer when Mayweather knocked out McGregor.
White confirmed that Mayweather fighting in MMA is now realistic.
“We’re talking to Floyd about doing a UFC deal. 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 could give the first realistic shot at Mayweather losing a fight in some form.
