White said the UFC would offer $2 million to Mayweather if he agreed to fight the promotion's lightweight champion, Sean Sherk. It sounded as though White would clearly want the fight to take place under MMA rules.

Sherk by (T)KO after he slams Mayweather and punches him till the ref stops it.

It will never happen. Besides i would rather see Frank Edgar break his arm, than see Sherk lay on top of him.

Sherk by matter of versatility. This'll never happen under UFC rules. The closest maybe I can think of is old Rings rules. IDK. I say Dana's blowing smoke and Mayweather is gonna reverse it for a boxing match. Chances of this under UFC rules 0 chance of mmaesque of any kind small-barely existent.

MAyweather would knock Sherk out. once Sherk lunges at him he'll get caught with an upper-cut

I'd like to see Guillard fight Mayweather just to see Melvin get embarassed and KO'd but it would be a waste for Mayweather's potentially only MMA fight. I don't think he'll ever fight in MMA though, way too risky for him especially after all these comments and he's making enough money from boxing anyway.

This wont ever happen, this is just Dana defaming Mayweather by bringing more attention to his ignorance and calling him out. Mayweather wont ever go for it, because Floyd wont have the guts to risk damaging his reputation.

It is such a ridiculous claim... Mayweather will never do it.

Dana is just having some fun poking at him..

2 million dollars is a chump change purse for mayweather. Not that he would ever take an MMA fight but if he did I would assume Dana would have to put up at least double digit millions and then on top of that proceeds.

A man can dream about Sherk lifting Mayweather 5 feet off the ground and dropping him on his head, though

lol flloyd makes what $25 mill a fight? 2 mill would get him a watch. Sherk would need to run at him and take him down asap, flloyd can throw so quickly and accuratly with 14oz gloves, imagine 4 oz. If he hit sherk it would be instantly rocked followed up by like 70 punches and out.

what I dont understand is, If this is at all true. . . . .Why dont they just raise the fighters purses in the UFC rather then offer These larger amounts for a measily celebrity death match style of show! I base this theory on the similar one involving hunger. . . "Why help feed kids overseas, when we got starving people here in the states" I think our own UFC fighters deserve the bigger salaries. How a lightweight title defense could be worth a meager 30k and a tito fight could be worth 200k beats me.

It's the contract they sign and when they sign it. Tito brings in alot more money then sherk and his lay and pray.
