"If I said there's a guaranteed $30 million payday, Floyd would be lacing them up," Cuban said, optimistic that Mayweather would eventually participate in an MMA match. "If not, I could see him working to train and develop and invest in MMA fighters, knowing the upside. He can teach them how to be a better boxer and add to their other skills."



I would like to see Mayweather clean up the welterweight divison first but if he wants to go to MMA that's fine.


talk is cheap, never happened never will.

Why would he?
"Bigger and better things..."
How is that possible with him making about as much as the whole UFC together this year... He ain't going nowhere, Cotto in late '09..

Awesome Mayweather quote about the UFC

“Who? Who’s Lyoto Machida? Lyoto Machida? Oh you mean that guy who sold 200,000 PPVs now he’s a superstar? It doesn’t take much over there does it? I’ve sold 3.5 million PPVs between my last 2 fights alone. How much money did Machida make his last fight? $100,000 maybe? Tell Dana White, for $100,000, I will come show him what a 28 million dollar check looks like..."

Leonard Ellerbe is a troll and Floyd Mayweather would rather die in a fire that get locked in a cage with an MMA fighter.

Anyone taking this even remotely seriously should really just get took to the vet and put down, like the useless brainless dogs they are.

Even 145 would be too much for him. And I highly doubt, at his age, he can get down to 135.

Floyd better move into Rickson Gracie's house for the next three years and pretend he's Danielsan from the Karate Kid if he wants to have a chance of suriviing in MMA. After that - he'd be ready.

he won't but, he also won't be risking his health as much. the worse thing that could happen to him is he catches a knee or high kick but most likely will just roughed up on the ground.
