Default Floyd Mayweather moving to MMA?

I just heard on a local sportscast....Steve Hartman and ch.9 KCal in Los Angeles, that Mayweather Jr. is mulling an offer with Dallas Maverick owner Mark Cuban to promote and fight in a cage style MMA event.

Has anybody heard of this?

What do you all think?
Is Mayweather serious?

Mayweather's got the boxing world at his feet, and he's considering moving and fighting MMA style?
This has got to be an attempt to keep his name in the major newspapers!

Crazy move by Mayweather if it happens!

PBF was bashing UFC/MMA now he's gonna promote or fight in an MMA event...what a joke..This guy plain and simple is the biggest fraud in boxing and I hope he does retire....Keep running Floyd from your true competition a legit welterweight in there prime like Cotto,Margarito,Williams or Cintron.

This shouldn't be taken seriously at all on boxing news sites. It's just a story that was created to give Floyd a little more attention. Nothing more than that..

And...Mayweather has his own promoter, himself. He just needs a smart guy like Cuban to maximize his potential.

Cause Cuban thinks outside of the box. He's taking a risk. He did it when he made his money on the internet. He did it when nobody thinks he had no business buying the Mavs. Now he's doing it with this type of fight. I don't think he'd do it if it were any other boxer.

Its all talk--and kinda annoying. Come on now, hes a professional boxer--why the hell would he go and do MMA? Bitch at me all you want but him acting like he will do it makes me look at him like a complete sellout of the sweet science of boxing.

After contemplating it, I don't think Floyd would fight MMA. If he gets 30 mil from Cuban to fight, other MMA fighters will want that much. MMA will be put out to business.

It will be the end of MMA to see MMA fighters getting boxing match pay. the business men in MMA would like to keep a huge chunk of their change for themselves.
