The UFC is rethinking its May 1 date in Montreal.

The calendar review is apparently due to rumblings that star boxer Floyd Mayweather may meet Shane Mosley the same day in Las Vegas.

UFC president Dana White confirmed via text Monday that the mixed martial arts organization is rethinking May 1 for UFC 113.

UFC light-heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida, due to meet Mauricio (Shogun) Rua in the Montreal main event, also signalled a possible change.

I think that with this particular card, they would beat the mayweather fight in ppv buys.

Mayweather isnt fighting someone with a gigantic fanbase, like all of his recent prior fights. And UFC 113 has Rampage, Rashad, Shogun, Machida, and Kimbo.

I dunno. People tune in to see Floyd because of his mouth(like Lesnar). It's a better idea to switch it to a week before or a week after. I still wish it was Floyd vs Pac man. I don't know who to blame but I know that Floyd took the harder back up fight.
