If I Return, it's in Octagon

If I Return, it's in Octagon

Mayweather announced his first retirement in 2015 after 49 consecutive victories, and then came out of retirement last summer to fight UFC star Conor McGregor, who had been boasting that he could best Mayweather in the ring.

"It is possible I do come back, but if I do come back, it has to be in the Octagon", Mayweather said.

"Retirement has been great but as you know, and everybody knows, I go on retirement and I go back", he said.

"And just to clear something up", White said, "and I don't want to give this guy any publicity because he loves it, but that greasy, slimy, rat Espinoza talking about how, "Oh, we break the rules" and all this other (expletive)".

Mayweather's history includes charges including domestic violence and misdemeanour battery, including a charge levelled at him from an ex-girlfriend and while not many are condoning McGregor's conduct of late, they were quick to remind Floyd that he is no angel. "But we can do a multi-fight deal".

The brash Irish superstar and his entourage attacked a "UFC Fight Bus" inside the Barclay's Center this past week, an incident which left two UFC fighters injured and unable to compete at last night's event in Brooklyn.

The fire was still not considered to be under control then because of smoke conditions above the 50th floor, Nigro said Saturday. The headquarters of the Trump Organisation are on the 26th floor of the skyscraper.

UFC president Dana White has also weighed in on the matter, saying that if it was to happen he was sure Mayweather would be "well compensated" and that he is "pretty confident that this will happen".

He was released from custody on bail of $50,000 with a court hearing set for June 14.

If Mayweather was to make his debut in MMA he would most likely fight at featherweight (145 pounds).

"Absolutely", he said. "If the money is right".

It was a very long and frustrating process to get McGregor into a boxing ring to face Mayweather, so we'll have to wait and see if the case is the same with Mayweather's potential transition to the UFC. Both fighters walked away with record-setting paydays after Mayweather defeated the debut boxer via a tenth round TKO.
