A long, long time ago Floyd Mayweather was the greatest boxer alive. But that was before he got bored with the competition. So, Money went on to samba and polka his way into America’s heart on Dancing with the Stars before deciding to take his in-ring skills to a different kind of squared circle, accepting a whole mess of WWE’s cash in order to get in a match with the Big Show at Wrestlemania. Well, it appears Mayweather still can’t decide on a full-time career.
The following was sent along to mmanews.com by Angel Aramboles:
I just got off the phone with a source very close to the situation and I am told that Floyd Mayweather and his representatives have been in contact with UFC’s Dana White as late as Wednesday but “possibly as late as last night” according to the source.
UFC is expected to make several announcements on Thursday.
1) Anderson Silva will be fighting in the light heavyweight class
2) Chuck Liddell will fight in the main event on the September pay-per-view in Atlanta
However, the big announcement being rumored is that Floyd Mayweather will be signing or has signed with UFC. For those that did not read our last update, Mayweather announced his retirement from boxing. If this signing turns out to be the case this would be a huge coup for UFC as it would surely attract some of the boxing fans that have not given UFC a chance.
Since Big Show was no problem for Mayweather, we figure that his first opponent should be Rampage. That should be a money maker…or a back breaker.
