For better or worse, Floyd Mayweather is adamant the chances of him making his mixed martial arts (MMA) debut in 2018 are 50/50. While most combat pundits are calling fake news on Floyd’s quest to conquer the eight-sided cage, there are those who wouldn’t mind mixing it up against “Money.”
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight contender Bobby Green has taken to social media to cal out the pound-for-pound best boxer in the world, maybe in history, to challenge him to a fight inside the Octagon.
And he won’t play by MMA rules, either, as “King” claims he will gladly keep it on the feet and school him at his own game, on his own soil of Las Vegas, Nevada. If Mayweather doesn’t happen to follow Bobby on Instagram, then perhaps Tyron Woodley — who is supposedly set to be training Mayweather in MMA — can relay the message to his pupil.
For Green, there is no harm in shooting his shot, but the chances of Floyd actually following through on his MMA conquest seems rather unlikely. Then again, if Green sticks to his word of keeping it all striking with the hands and no takedowns or kicks, then maybe Floyd will be all ears.
