Video: Dana White says boxing champ Floyd Mayweather would get 'murdered' in UFC

I have a feeling "Money" isn't going to like this one bit.

The mixed martial arts (MMA) versus boxing debate is not a new one (just ask Sean Sherk). Nevertheless, when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White is asked about it, he has no choice but to address the issue.

And he did just that when he was a guest on "The Arsenio Hall Show" after he was asked to give his thoughts as to what would happen if Floyd Mayweather Jr. ever decided to step inside the Octagon to face the best UFC has to offer in his weight class.

And White answered in the only way he knows how:

"He'd get murdered. He'd get murdered in the UFC. Here's the thing. These guys always talk about this crossover stuff. Floyd's going to go crazy because I said that, now. The bottom line is, the disrespect that these guys show for each others sports; it's like my guys thinking they can go over and box and Floyd thinking he could come over here to the UFC. It's like, you go into a knife fight and the other guy has guns and chains and crowbars. There are so many more weapons in the UFC than there are in boxing, so, it makes no sense."

While "Money" has never actually shown interest in stepping inside the cage, watching him compete inside the world-famous Octagon would be a fantasy come true for millions of fight fans worldwide. But they'll just have to settle for the promotional side of the sport instead of him actually competing in it.

At least there he'll be safe, according to Dana's assessment.
