Belfort on Mayweather in MMA: Even 14, 15 Year Olds Beat Him

In a recent Showtime televised interview, former five division world champion Floyd Mayweather said that if he fights again it will be in a mixed martial arts bout but added he's not focused on getting in the ring again with UFC superstar Conor McGregor.

"McGregor has other things to deal with," Mayweather said.

Mayweather also said that if he comes out of retirement it would be against the wishes of his trusted adviser Al Haymon. He added it would have to be for the right amount of money and at the 145 pound division in UFC.

"It is possible I do come back, but if I do come back, it has to be in the Octagon," said Mayweather, who has never fought in the UFC before.

"I spoke with my team, I spoke with (adviser) Al Haymon. Al Haymon says no. If I do come back, Showtime and CBS have to be involved."

Mayweather, who has often used a retirement ruse as a way to sell tickets to his title fights, said people should know he is not serious when he says this will be his last time in the ring.

"Retirement has been great, but as you know and everyone knows, I go into retirement and I come back," he said.

Mayweather did not give any details about who he might seek to fight.

"I can do whatever I want, when I want to, and how I want to," he said.

McGregor crossed over to boxing in August and Mayweather knocked him out in the 10th round of the second-highest grossing fight in history.

But former UFC champion and longtime MMA veteran Vitor Belfort believes Mayweather - at 41-years-old and having no prior MMA experience - would be in way over his head.

"I think he doesn’t have a chance even against the young kids, 15, 14-year-olds,” Belfort said during a Hangout session. “I don’t think he has a chance, no. He has a lot to learn on the ground, kicks. I think it’s an illusion (to say) that happens unless it’s different rules or a fight in his world.”

“With his arms, on his weight, he’s a phenom. Now, involving legs and other things, no chance.”
