Although I think that money is way too high for what will actually happen---I DO think they will be signing him. Rumors are flying all over the net and message boards. I, for one, am actually excited only because I want to see him get "schooled" in MMA just to shut him up!

Yeah not sure on the money, but you have to say one thing about Floyd...he is a helluva athlete, and trains like crazy...so he will have awesome standup and great cardio. Can he learn some jits and grappling we will see. I guess he has as much of a shot as a Kimbo, maybe more if you give him props for the actual legitimate boxing career. I think most trainers would be happy as hell to inherit a guy like that. One thing for sure he won't be running that mouth like he usually does after a big loss when it comes.

Interesting though that this rumor surfaces when Dana said there is going to be a ground breaking announcement later this week, and the article says it could be announced on Thursday. I wonder if there is any correlation there but I surely hope there is not because that guy better not be getting that kind of money while some of the best fighters don't get jack.

If this does actually happen, Dana White would be hands down considered THE WORST president of any sports company or team, in sports history.

Kobe Bryant, the best basketball player in the game right now does not even make $200 Million dollars. Tom Brady and Payton Manning probably don't make $200 Million dollars combined for being the best Quartbacks in football. Not to mention you already have heat from a current UFC Hall Of Famer and a should be future one(Randy and Tito.) You BARELY gave Kalib Starnes $10,000 a fight, and your going to give somebody with no experience in the sport 200 mil. when IMHO he does not even have half the MMA skill Kalib has?

But surprisingly, I would not be surprised if this did happen. I mean shoot, they let Brock Lesnar, another one dimensional fighter in with just one fight under his belt. I would cry if happened. MMA WOULD BE SCREWED!!!

No way, not when you have had champs in this sport complain the money isnt what it should be..

I don't think so. Pay him 200 million, then send him in to fight and get beat within the first round. No chance.

200 million would be a huge slap in the face to the people who are actual MMA fighters and are getting paid 10k a fight. Sure he would bring new fans and big ratings but this is turning into a bit of a circus act for ratings.

He makes maybe 1/10 of that when he fights big names like Oscar De La Hoya (who made a lot more than him in that fight because of his promotion company).
Mayweather needs to keep out of MMA.

It will be deadly for the UFC's well being for it even being just 20 million dollars. I bet it's a one fight deal for 2 million. Dana just wants to see him get his ass kicked.

$200 mil will not happen. Gimme a break. I'd be surprised to see 2 mil. Maywether fighting in the UFC would bring in a huge audience, but not worth $200 mil. I'd like to see it and he would undoubtedly be schooled on the ground by whoever he faced.
