Mayweather shoots down White’s UFC negotiations statement, McGregor responds with one word

New, comments

Floyd Mayweather doesn’t actually want to fight in the UFC, and Conor McGregor has one word for him.

As usual, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is toying with the media. A few days after saying he could make a billion dollars if he fought in the UFC, Dana White actually confirmed they were having real talks with Mayweather about coming in. But, hold your horses - Mayweather said today that it’s not happening. In an interview with FightHype, he shot the whole idea down emphatically and said his original statement was misconstrued:

“Exactly what I said is this: If I could make over a billion dollars before, I could do it again. If I chose to get in the UFC and fight three fights or fight four fights and then fight Conor McGregor, I could make a billion dollars. Which I can. I could do it in three fights or even four fights - I could make a billion dollars. If I choose to get in the Octagon and fight.”


“I’m just saying I could. I’m not going to do it. I’m just saying what I could do to make a billion dollars quick, if I wanted to do that. But I never said I was going to fight in the UFC. I didn’t say that. If I wanted to, I could do. Would and could do is different things. I’m not going to do it though.”

Guess I should have jumped on that prop bet on whether Mayweather would fight in the UFC when I had the chance.

Anyway, it didn’t take long for McGregor to chime in on the subject. McGregor, who boxed Mayweather and made over 100 million dollars for a TKO loss in August, posted a single word on social media in reference to Mayweather’s statement:

If you can’t see it, that one word would be “p-ssy”.
