"Obviously, the only way making that fight again makes any sense is if he comes over to the Octagon", the UFC boss said, per the Express.

The two met inside a boxing ring in August 2017, with Mayweather extending his ideal record to 50-0 via a stoppage in the 10th round. Given his age (40) and the fact he owns Mayweather Promotions, one of the most lucrative promotion firms in the sport, most pundits don't believe he'll take the risk of switching to MMA, where he would face one of the most skilled fighters in the UFC.

"There are a lot of talks about him potentially having an MMA fight with Conor McGregor".

Before the whole Mayweather vs McGregor boxing match back in August UFC president Dana White said for months that he never thought the fight would happen. There's no doubt that money is still left on the table if these two wanted to throw down again, but perhaps that potential is maximized in an MMA bout. "So we'll see what happens". "Now it's time for him to reciprocate and come fight in the octagon".

"My soundings are that there are a lot of talks going on in the background", he told Talksport's Jim White.

Undefeated boxing champ Mayweather defeated UFC king McGregor with a 10th round TKO last August in Las Vegas, but the Dubliner is keen to get Mayweather in the cage for a rematch.

Mayweather cooled that news down, telling the press "Just because I said I could, doesn't mean I would". We all know Floyd loves money, and should a rematch go down - he may be looking at cashing in half a billion dollars.

After defeating Conor McGregor previous year and making a stupid amount of money, many wanted Floyd to then crossover into MMA and fight McGregor on his turf, but no one expected it to actually happen.
