Retired former five division world champion Floyd Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) has continued to tease the possibility that he'll make his debut in mixed martial arts.
Mayweather posted an image to social media (found below), which shows him busting up UFC superstar Conor McGregor in a clash that is obviously being conducted under MMA rules - and along with that image the boxer posted a message which read - "Certified Killa vs Certified Bitch"
Mayweather snapped a two-year retirement back in August of last year, when he fought McGregor, who was making his boxing debut.
After stopping McGregor in the tenth round at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, the 40 year old Mayweather announced his retirement from the sport.
In the last few weeks, Mayweather has been making social media posts - teasing the idea that he'll enter the UFC's octagon for a rematch with McGregor.
In two videos, a barefoot Mayweather is entering an octagon cage, which is widely used by the UFC and other MMA companies, and he also posted a photo where he's wearing MMA style gloves with his TMT branding.
After he announced his retirement from boxing, Mayweather claimed that the UFC approached him with a multi-fight deal worth hundreds of millions.
The boxing match with McGregor generated over 4 million pay-per-view buys - coming close to the pay-per-view buyrate record currently held by the mega-bout between Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.
Last week, UFC President Dana White made it known that he won't even entertain the idea of a Mayweather-McGregor rematch unless they collide under MMA rules.
“Obviously, the only way making that fight again makes any sense is if he comes over to the Octagon,” White said on UFC Tonight. “We went over and boxed him, the UFC and Conor McGregor. And now it’s time for him to reciprocate and come fight in the Octagon.
“Floyd said leading up to the fight with Conor that he would do both. So we’ll see what happens.”
