Floyd Mayweather in the UFC? Think again. Hours after UFC president Dana White said the promotion was having “real” talks with Floyd Mayweather about competing in the Octagon, Mayweather himself shot down the rumblings. In an interview with FightHype (h/t MMA Weekly), Mayweather said people misconstrued what he said last week about the UFC. He didn’t say he was going to compete in MMA — he said he could make a billion dollars in the UFC if he chose to. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s something he will be doing.
