Of course, Mayweather would be an overwhelming underdog against virtually anybody he would face in the UFC much less McGregor, the promotion's lightweight champion.

Despite his lack of experience in the Octagon, it's not stopped talk of a potential match taking place. "So we'll see what happens".

The pair met in August when McGregor was stopped in the 10th round of their glitzy Las Vegas boxing match, Mayweather's favoured discipline.

"We went over and boxed him, the UFC and Conor McGregor". I can keep baiting him or what-not but he has the sparring video and that video is not going to come out so he's going to have the advantage over time.

"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", Mayweather said. UFC president Dana White stoked the flames when he told Joe Rogan that Mayweather had engaged in serious discussions with the UFC about a fight.

His other option is to fight the victor of Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov, which will be the main event of UFC 223, while there has been equally excitable talk of him completing the Nate Diaz trilogy.

So much for all the transfer rumor stories linking Mesut Ozil to Manchester United and Real Madrid . It's a big job required for a club determined to get back on track.


Still, considering the gaudy amount of money the boxing match between Mayweather and McGregor made previous year, it's impossible to ignore the possibility of a rematch happening.

"I never said I was gonna fight in the UFC", the boxer told website FightHype.com in December previous year.

The big, big money is going to be in another faceoff with Mayweather, but convincing him to step into the Octagon could be easier said than done.

Neither McGregor or Mayweather have fought since their August bout.

Mayweather, who turns 41 later this month, would be making his MMA debut if he was to join the UFC.
