UFC President Makes Major Announcement About Potential Floyd Mayweather Fight

David Hookstead | Reporter

UFC president Dana White dumped a bunch of cold water on a potential boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

“Listen, if Mayweather wants to fight, come fight. You fight in the UFC. We’re not boxing him. We did that once. That’s over,” White responded when asked by TMZ Sports about a potential fight between the boxing legend and Khabib. (RELATED: Conor McGregor’s Return To The UFC Was An Absolute Circus.

You know how much stock I put in this? Pretty much nothing. People said the same junk before the McGregor/Mayweather fight, and I’m pretty sure I still watched them both throw punches in a boxing ring.

I have actually never thought this fight would ever happen, and I really don’t care for it to take place. However, I’m not buying that if there’s potential, that it’d have to take place in the UFC. That fight would be over in a matter of moments. Khabib would destroy Mayweather.

We did this circus once with a crossover between the two sports, and it was extremely entertaining. However, I’m just not sure that’s going to stick forever. We really don’t need to do it twice, and I really do doubt it’ll happen.

There’s simply no chance in hell Mayweather is ever stepping a foot in an octagon.
