Legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather retired for a second time after defeating UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor in a boxing match this past August.
While the boxing great has never stepped inside the UFC’s Octagon, it hasn’t stopped him from claiming that the promotion has offered billions to sign a contract.
“You know they (the UFC) just called me not to long ago and asked me to comeback, if I wanted to, I can comeback to the UFC and go fight in the Octagon. I could go do a three to four fight deal in the Octagon and make a billion dollars,” Mayweather said during a live video chat on Fight Hype.
Mayweather did tease a potential Octagon appearance during the build to the fight with McGregor, but this is the first time he has spoken about it since the super fight.
The retired fighter also responded to the criticism about the super fight with McGregor, saying that a fighter had to be brought in from another sport just to challenge him.
“I fell out of the game (boxing) for two years and I kick ass, I am so tough at what I do that they had to go to a whole ‘nother barbarian sport (MMA) to go get a motherf*cker who would f*ck with me. You already knew it, you already knew what I did with that, lights out, party’s over and you can go kiss the babies,” says Mayweather.
There has been no comment made by the UFC about the supposed contract offer made to Mayweather.
