Dana White Claims He’s Meeting With Floyd Mayweather And His Team Today About A Possible UFC Fight
Last week, xoer Floyd Mayweather came out and publicly shut down rumors that he was considering fight in the UFC.

That’s not what I said.
“Exactly what I said is this: If I made over a billion dollars before, I could do it again. If I chose to get in the UFC and fight three fights or fight four fights and then fight Conor McGregor, I could make a billion dollars, which I can.
“I could do it in three fights, or even four fights, I can make a billion dollars if I choose to get in the octagon and fight. Fight three or four fights and then fight Conor McGregor in the octagon.
“We just don’t know what the future holds for Floyd Mayweather and I don’t look forward to getting back in the boxing ring. That’s what I don’t look forward to doing. I’m just saying I could. I’m not doing it but I’m saying what I could do to make a billion dollars quick if i wanted to do it. That’s what I am saying.”
Despite Mayweather’s denial, it seems like Dana White is dead set on trying to get a fight done with Mayweather and his camp.
What I said was don’t count anything out on him coming over to the UFC,” White said. “Anything is possible. I did not believe that McGregor-Mayweather would happen and it did, so anything’s possible. I actually have a meeting with those guys today — with (Floyd’s) crew.”
Would Mayweather actually consider embarrassing himself in the UFC Octagon for $100 million? I don’t think he needs the money but not many thought that the Mayweather-McGregor fight was going to actually go down last year.
