Ever since former five-division world champion, Floyd Mayweather announced that he was returning back in action in 2020 and will be working alongside UFC President Dana White, the number of UFC fighters calling out Mayweather has been steadily increasing. The latest to join the list is UFC featherweight, Bryce Mitchell.
Apparently the reason, Mithcell wants to fight Floyd is because of something that the legendary boxer had said about a decade ago.
“There is one person I’ll call out real quick and that is Floyd Mayweather,” Bryce Mitchell began on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show. “He’s talking about he’s wanting to box some MMA fighter and you know I watched some interview of his probably 10 years ago and its pissed me off ever since… He said that MMA is for white dudes who can’t box. That is what he said word for word…
“I’ll box him. He is talking about he wants to come over and box a UFC fighter, I’ll beat his ass. That is all I got to say about him. He thinks I’m scared of him for a minute, he fights like a b***h. He runs, he’s scared, I’ve never gone into a fight in my life trying to win on points, never. When I go into the cage I fight to kill someone,” Bryce Mitchell continued. “Floyd Mayweather, he fights like a b***h. He runs, he point-fights the whole fight, most of his fights are boring. If he wants a real fight, it’s right here, it’s right here buddy. I’ll kick your ass. You know how hard I’ll hit Floyd Mayweather? I’ll hit Floyd so damn hard he’ll wake up and be able to read a book. That’s how hard I’ll hit him. His brain will be so scrambled from my hands he’ll wake up and be able to read. The doctors there going to think it is a miracle that this f*****g idiot can read. That’s how hard I’ll hit Floyd Mayweather. He can f**k right off. If he wants a boxing match, this stupid white guy will box him.” Mithcell concluded.
UFC featherweight Bryce Mithcell is coming off of an incredible victory against Matt Sayles at the Capital One Arena in Washington DC. Mithcell defeated Sayles in an extremely rare twister submission.
