I hope he's not this stupid
Mayweather teases at accepting MMA deal
He made probably upwards of $350 million for boxing a guy everyone knew had no chance. He could probably make the same by fighting a tomato can in UFC. Probably the same again to fight a legitimate MMA fighter with a known name whose style matches up with him and would give him a greater than 50% chance of winning. Then probably could make over $4-500 million to fight Conner Macgregor in the cage. If he won the first 2.
Of course even a hand picked tomato can could easily beat him, and he walks away with $350 million and saying, "I'm still he best boxer ever."
I don't think he's trolling, but I don't think it will necessarily happen either. I believe these are just feelers, he won't do it as a traditional UFC fighter making a paycheck, he'll want a big piece of the front end and the back end. And even then he's not going to do it if there isn't enough interest for him to sell his pride. How much exactly is that "and 0 losses" worth to him?
Mayweather: Will begin training soon for MMA
