Floyd Mayweather may have retired a second time after he cashed in on the big payday of his overhyped circus versus UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor this August 26, but he's already hinting at another return to the ring - or in this case, the Octagon. That being said, he never mentioned that he wouldn't come back as a mixed martial artist.
During a sometimes offensive, often freakish online Q&A recently, Floyd Mayweather Jr. teased fans with the idea of a run in MMA that he claims could move him from the obscene multi-multi-millionaire category to billionaire status.
He walked away as victor via TKO in the ninth round and extended his undefeated record to 50-0.
There has been no comment made by the UFC about the supposed contract offer made to Mayweather.
The buildup to the bout between the two biggest figures in combat sports was like nothing we'd ever seen before but the fight didn't live up to its billing.
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.
You heard me. Ain't nobody do it better than me.
"They just called me not too long ago and asked me to come back". I can come right back to the UFC, I can go fight in the Octagon. I can come right back to the UFC. I can go do a three or four-fight deal in the Octagon and make a billion dollars. "Remember, I'm Floyd "Money" Mayweather, and you motherfuckers love me, and I love you motherfuckers".
The 40-year-old said he'd be willing to take on McGregor in the Octagon during a number of their press events but fans didn't really believe it.
