People are still talking about this boxing legend.
Over the last few weeks, the Boxing Legend has posted videos of him entering a cage while Showtime executive Stephen Espinoza has been using “MayweatherMMA” hashtags to complete the tease of Mayweather potentially fighting under the UFC banner inside of the Octagon.
The latest shot that Floyd Mayweather decided to take was a photoshopped image showing him MMA gloves and elbowing the UFC lightweight champion, Conor McGregor.
McGregor and Mayweather have been exchanging words in some kind of attempt to make a rematch happen.
As recently as last week there was a report that stated that both sides were in talks on making a second fight happen in the Octagon.
There is a strong chance that the UFC and its President Dana White will decide to strip McGregor of his lightweight title soon due to the fact that he has not defended in over a year and the promotion booking a fight been top title contenders Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson for the UFC 223 pay-per-view in April.
Jeff Mayweather recently went on record and suggested that Floyd could beat CM Punk in an MMA fight.
UFC commentator Joe Rogan recently gave his analysis about a hypothetical Mayweather vs. CM Punk showdown during the latest edition of the Joe Rogan Experience MMA Show alongside former heavyweight fighter Brendan Schaub.
“Whatever the f—k Vegas puts on [Mayweather vs. McGregor], that’s cute,” Rogan said (transcript courtesy of MMA Junkie). “I don’t care if it’s 10-1, 100-1, I bet it’s going to be like 900-1. It’s gonna be something ridiculous.
Buster Douglas was only like 42-1 [against Mike Tyson]. This is gonna be insane… if they’re smart. Because Conor’s going to kick his legs out –- he’s not even going to have a chance to come close enough. Conor’s going to kick his f—king legs out; he doesn’t have any chance.
Then if Conor decides to shoot in and clinch, he’s going to clinch and he’s going to ragdoll him.”
“He’s on another level of everybody who is on another level. Can Floyd fight the same way he does with big gloves, with MMA gloves? The reason why I say this because Floyd’s broken his hands multiple times.
He’s had some serious surgeries on his hands. Maybe they’ve cured it, and maybe it’s fine, but we’ve all known for the longest time, Floyd preferred puffier gloves when he’s fought.
But he hasn’t had hand problems in a while, so maybe he did fix it, and his hands looked f—king great against Conor.”
