God I'd love to ee that $hit talker in a cage!!! I think he might win 2-4 times before a grappler would tear his arms off!!! What's his weight...LW, if so I'd like to see him in there with Clay or Edgar....that would set him straight!!

yeah i just read this on ESPN, he came out with Cuban for the Hatton fight and they are supposedly huge friends since meeting on Dancing w/ the Stars (business motivated friends im sure). I am a HUGE Pretty Boy Floyd fan and not quite sure how i would react to seeing him in the octagon. i know he would never get tired, but might be in for a rude awakening once he gets taken down by someone. but u know he wont fight any top level fighter....too cocky for that i think

of course if they give him some cans with 0 ground game, he will probably win a fight or 2 but as soon as he will fight a real complete fighter who will take him down in the fight 5 sec. he will be destroy !!

he weighed in his fight with hatton at 147, so could easily fight at 145 or 155

If the guy can't take him down within 2 minuets the guy would be out cold. Also Floyd's a FW so they could put him up against jens, urijah, cub, anyone. I think he would be amazing with a good sprawl.

Did anybody else notice that they have the exact same quote twice in that article? I mean, come on, it's only like 300 words. And half of the thing is the same quote repeated. Almost makes me question the source....

Anyway, Floyd won't be successful in MMA. He's a boxer. He has never trained in jiu-jitsu, and I don't think he has the drive. Why would he come to MMA (where there is less money) and have a reason to want to excel? He can talk about "doing everything he can do in boxing," but I don't seem to remember him winning a unified title. Maybe I'm wrong there....

I only like the idea cause it hurts boxing in a sense if he left that completely. Screw Don king

Wow, this in intriguing. If Cuban could bring him to MMA it would be a major coup. I would be surprised if it did happen though. Look at the purses a top boxer makes vs the purses of a top MMA fighter. No comparison, a boxer makes 10 times as much or more. Would he do it for Honor? Maybe but it wouldn't be wise, they are two different sports and barring a lucky punch a good grappler is going to take him down and submit him easily. Mayweather's people will undoubtably talk him out of this.. but you never know.
