Rumors started flying last year about Floyd Mayweather possibly considering a move to the UFC via a billion dollar multi-fight deal.
"They just called me not too long ago and asked me to come back," Mayweather said on Instagram Live, December 11. "I can come right back. If I wanted to I could come right back to the UFC. I can go fight in the Octagon. I can go do a three or four-fight deal in the Octagon and make a billion dollars. Remember I'm Floyd 'Money' Mayweather."
Later that month, UFC President Dana White confirmed something was in the works when he told ESPN he was about to sit down and talk business with the retired boxing legend.
"We're talking to Floyd about doing a UFC deal," White acknowledged at the time. "It's real. He was talking about [boxing] Conor McGregor. Was that real? Have you heard Floyd talk about many things that aren't real? He usually tips his hand when he's in the media, and then that shit ends up happening. We're interested in doing something with Floyd. Everything is a realistic possibility. Mayweather vs. McGregor fucking happened. Anything is possible."
Mayweather later shot down the possibility as just talk, but on Tuesday, January 30, he posted an Instagram video of himself stepping into an Octagon.
