Mayweather Claims UFC Approached Him With Multi-Fight Deal

According to five division world champion Floyd Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs), he was recently approached by the UFC with a lucrative multi-fight deal - to fight on the Octagon.

Mayweather, 40 years old, snapped a two year retirement back in August, when he collided with UFC superstar Conor McGregor in a boxing match at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

At the junior middleweight limit and using eight ounce gloves, Mayweather secured a stoppage victory in the tenth round.

The event was extremely successful, with a gate of $55 million and 4 million pay-per-view buys. Mayweather claims to have made around $300 million from the event, with McGregor walking away with around $100 million.

UFC President Dana White was part of the promotion for the Mayweather-McGregor pay-per-view, and it's not exactly a secret that his company is making moves to enter the world of boxing in 2018.

Mayweather took part in a live stream on Instagram, where he claimed that White's company spoke to him about a multi-fight deal.

"You already know I'm a money-getting motherf***er. I'm Money May. They just called me not too long ago and asked me to come back. I can come right back to the UFC. If I want, I can go [right back].... 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***ers love me - and I love you motherf***ers," Mayweather said.

Mayweather returning in any fashion, in boxing or the UFC, appears unlikely at this point. He retired immediately after the win over McGregor. During the fight, while dominant, it was evident that Mayweather was not as fast or as mobile as he's seen in the past, even when compared to his prior performance from two years ago when he dominated Andre Berto over twelve rounds.

This will never happen because the UFC can't afford him, they still treat their employees as slaves, and that's saying something considering the amount boxing promoters take. Would Floyd have to wear Reebok and be paid $50,000 for the privilege…

multi fight deal? the hardest part for white would be finding a fight Floyd could win.

Didn't see the video, but I know how Floyd is. He's always been a little, off. I don't know how to describe it. Just the way he carries himself. I could totally see him having a mental breakdown.
