So, will Mayweather step up to the plate and accept a challenge to fight a UFC fighter? Oddsmakers have that chance listed at -250. In other words, they think there is a good chance it will happen.

I don't see it happening...although, if Dana can match his purse for boxing, Floyd would look like a chump if he didn't accept.

If Floyd is too scared, maybe Cintron will do it...check it out

i believe it was mayweather that said anyone could take a bouncer give him tatoos and put him in a cage and call it ultimate fighting, which pretty much implies that he doesnt think much of mma fighter's skills. Unless he got in a one punch ko, anyone in the ufc could rock his shit. As for sherk boxing mayweather, i dont ever recall sherk calling out boxing or any boxer ever. And as for Mayweather himself, hes a selfish, egotistical prick. And if he's not scared of anyone, then why didn't he actually fight oscar. that pussy waited, threw one counterpunch and retreated, fighting for a decision.

And we'll see how long his retirement lasts. He thinks he's leaving as a legend, but he will be forgotten soon

WHAT?! MAN ENOUGH?! He talked crap ion front of the cameras. Then when someone actually comes after him he bitches out?!. Then he doesnt come out to the cameras apologizing saying he was wrong. In stead he needs someone else to fight sherk because he knew hed probly die. He just wanted to look tough. Then got turned into a punk. The guy is your avatar and is in your name.....i smell some nuthugging going on...

floyd, is that you?

seriously, mayweather has been quoted as saying that a good boxer would beat any MMA fighter under MMA rules. Sherk never said he could beat a boxer under boxing rules--he even admitted he would lose that fight (obviously). Therefore, sherk doesnt need to get in the ring and box to prove his point. Mayweather, on the other hand... talked shit, claimed he (or any other good boxer) would beat an MMA fighter at their own game, and now he is backing down because he realized its only making him look like a pussy.

oh, and he also probably realized he was only giving the UFC free publicity to all the boxing fans out there.

these 'quotes' appeared where? in the press? until i actually HEAR it directly from mayweather's mouth, it's just typical BS to hype a fight. facts are facts people: MMA & boxing are two different sports. mayweather can't fight MMA, sherk would be killed in the boxing ring. it's not happening, not now, not ever. it's even more ludicrous than michael jordan's baseball career!

Mayweather can't fight MMA? Not according to Mayweather. Now, that is ludicrous!

I totally agree with Lord_Lenny and ckm. Whoever is the dumbshit that opens their mouth has to be the dumbshit to step up to the plate.
