UFC president Dana White doesn’t seem to think Floyd Mayweather fighting in an octagon is a good idea at all.

In fact, White — when discussing the possibility of Mayweather fighting in the UFC on FS1’s show “The Herd” — said “that’s a really bad idea” (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Greatest Ronda Rousey Photos On The Internet)

Guest host Doug Gottlieb agreed with White in every way possible. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Paige VanZant Photos On The Internet)

How could you possibly disagree with White’s assessment of the situation? Mayweather might have bested Conor McGregor in a boxing match, but the UFC is a total different beast. (SLIDESHOW: These UFC Women Really Hate Wearing Clothes)

There are very few rules to save Mayweather from getting his face pounded in. How long would a fight against McGregor last in the octagon? Less than a minute? Less than 30 seconds? It wouldn’t last long at all.

Mayweather might want some more money, but perhaps he should focus on not getting slaughtered in the octagon.
