Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. who netted $100 million in a highly-anticipated multi-million boxing match against UFC champ Conor McGregor, which he won via Tenth round TKO back in August. After that, he confirmed his retirement (again) from the sweet science.
Mayweather caused a bit of a stir online earlier this year when he posted a video of himself entering an MMA cage. He has been dropping hints about a transition into MMA since last year, saying he could do a three or four-fight deal in the UFC to make $1 billion if he wanted to.
Last week, the Money Mayweather insisted that he would soon begin training in MMA and that UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley claimed he will be helping Floyd Mayweather train for his transition into MMA.
Mayweather caught up with TMZ last week, where he talked about his transition to MMA and that he’s submitting paperwork for his MMA license to compete as a pro-MMA fighter:
“Everything takes time. Eventually, we’re gonna apply for the license, and hopefully we can fight,” Mayweather said.
Mayweather Jr. never revealed the timeline of when he would apply for the license or when he plans to start actual training with Tyron Woodley however, last week said that his training would begin “real soon.”
But if he did decide to make an MMA debut he apparently needs a potential opponent, do you think the highly-anticipated UFC rematch with Conor McGregor is on. Share your opinion in the comment section.
