Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. is widely considered the greatest Boxer to ever walk the planet earth. Since knocking out two division UFC champion Conor McGregor , Floyd has been flirting with the idea of an MMA fight.
Floyd made another dabble in the MMA arena as he took on Japanese MMA star Tenshin Nasukawa in an exhibition match in Rizin FF. Over the past few weeks Floyd has made headlines as he has been calling out UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov for a MMA fight.
UFC president Dana White confirmed the rumors and made it clear that Khabib will only be fighting MMA but Dana has another opponent in mind for Floyd. Over this past weekend, Dana White sat down with Floyd and his team to discuss a contract.
According to reports, Floyd was offered a 4 fight deal worth over $1 Billion dollars where he would face 3 contenders before a final bout with either Khabib or Conor McGregor depending on who’s the champion at that time.
According to our sources inside the Money Team, Floyd has been training Wrestling and MMA for the past 5 years with a US Olympian but from what it looks like, he won’t be needing it and we we’re also told that the meeting with Dana was a success and Floyd is not interested in fighting 4 MMA bouts.
Floyd is only interested in a money fight and is not interested in fighting McGregor again seeing how easily he beat him the first time. Floyd has his sights set on Nate Diaz at a 152 lb catchweight MMA fight with ‘Special Rules’. From what we learned so far, here is what is being proposed for rules in this bout:
-5 x 5 minute round main event
-UFC gloves and in the UFC cage
-No elbows, no knees
-Each fighter to be allowed only 3 kicks per round
-Full Boxing rules
-Floyd’s purposed purse of $250 Million guranteed
