Undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather retired from the sport following his tenth-round TKO victory over Conor McGregor this past August which improved his record to a miraculous 50-0.
Since defeating “Mystic Mac” in Sin City, rumors have began swirling that “Money” is now interested in taking his talents to the UFC’s octagon.
Mayweather recently spoke to Jim Gray where he revealed that if he does in fact make a comeback, it will have to be in the UFC octagon.
“Retirement has been great. But as you know and everyone knows, I go in to retirement, and I come back. It is possible I do come back. But if I do come back, it has to be in the octagon.”
“Money” then took the time to address Conor McGregor’s most recent troubles.
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.
According to reports “Mystic Mac” was targeting undefeated lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov, who captured the UFC’s lightweight crown last night at UFC 223 by defeating “Raging” Al Iaquinta via unanimous decision.
Here is what Mayweather had to say about McGregor’s recent actions which led to Conor being taken in to custody by the NYPD.
“I feel that when you have reached such high status, you have to carry yourself in a classy way. Outside the ring, you have to carry yourself as a gentleman.”
