Floyd Mayweather In UFC?
If rumours are to be believed then Floyd Mayweather is on his way to the UFC to start an MMA career and is currently getting trained by UFC welterweight Champion, Tyron Woodley and the pair is focusing on ground work at the minute. Recently, Mayweather has applied for an MMA license so that’s something but is it right for Mayweather?
Floyd Mayweather has retired from boxing, ending his career at 50-0 and wants to focus on MMA. The man is one hundred and fifty pounds meaning he’d most likely fight in the lightweight divison and I wouldn’t be up for seeing Khabib Nurmagedov eat Mayweather on the ground. Yesterday, it was announced that Nick Newell will be in “Dana White’s contender series” and if you’re unfamiliar with Newell, he’d be a decent fight for Mayweather.
My opinion is that I really don’t want to see Floyd Mayweather in UFC. I’m not a fan of the idea and if he fights for the UFC and racks up a few wins. Will he immediately get a title shot because let’s be honest, he will and I’m not fan of it. It happened with Lesnar and it’ll happen with Mayweather.
