Video: Floyd Mayweather mouthguard cost $25,000 and comes stuffed with $100 bills

Undefeated boxing icon Floyd Mayweather Jr. is putting his money where his mouth is -- literally -- thanks to a mouthguard that cost him $25,000, partly because it's stuffed with $100 bills. Hey, when you have a nickname like "Money," you have to play the part.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight Brendan Schaub may follow suit.

Unfortunately, The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 runner-up may have to stuff his with pennies (his words). I'd reckon that's all he can afford after the mass exodus of his sponsors, who fled "Brown" town like the Israelites fled Egypt, thanks to Pharaoh White and his new sponsorship deal with Reebok.

So let it be written, so let it be done.

Mayweather puts his legacy on the line against Manny Pacquiao on May 2, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada, in a fight that will not only prove to be boxing's richest, but also settle the longstanding debate about which of these two pugilists is the best of their era.
