According to Dana White, Floyd Mayweather Jr. fighting a few bouts in the Octagon is absolutely a possibility. If another superfight (or a few) actually comes to fruition, Mayweather's going to need some pointers from an MMA pro before he stands a chance against a powerhouse like UFC lightweight champ Conor McGregor—someone with whom the masses would love to see him go a few rounds in the Octagon.
Enter UFC welterweight champ Tyron Woodley, who seized the opportunity to announce himself as a potential trainer for his friend, "Money" Mayweather, if the fight does take place.
He also went on to discuss the possibility of the fight, Mayweather's potential tune-up opponents, and fighting styles.
Take a look at the video below:
The buzz all began when Mayweather said that it was plausible for him to make a billion dollars with a multi-fight deal with the UFC. Following these semi-outrageous comments, Dana White confirmed to ESPN that the UFC and Mayweather were in talks for a fight in the Octagon.
UFC flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson also chimed in recently on the breaking news, saying that he would be up for a fight with the boxer and would even offer altered rules to make things a little more fair.
If the May-Mac fight is any indication, there's a ton of cash to be made if Mayweather ends up agreeing to fight in the Octagon, but it remains to be seen if he'll actually be able to compete at a decent level in a sport so different from boxing.
If it does happen, we're sure to see plenty of other UFC veterans throwing their hats into the ring—or should we say Octagon—for a shot at coaching the boxing legend in MMA.
