Flyod Mayweather recently did a social media live session for fans where some interesting details came out from him…though one needs to take what he says with a pinch of salt…
“You already know I’m a money-getting motherf**ker,” he said in the video. “I’m Money May. They just called me not too long ago and asked me to come back. I can come right back to the UFC. If I want, I can go, I can come right back to the UFC, I can go fight in the Octagon. I can do a three or four fight deal in the Octagon and make a billion dollars. Remember, I’m Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather, and you motherf**kers love me, and I love you motherf**kers.”
The big question now is whether the UFC could pony up the kind of cash Floyd Mayweather makes in boxing. Even with so much money to make, we doubt they would simply because it would blow open the entire pay structure the UFC has cultivated so carefully over the years.
What’s important to ask also is whether he was just talking big numbers like he’s prone to do or there’s actually an offer on the table.
Most probably could be the former.
