    Dana says a lot of things, I don't see Floyd doing this though.

    How would Floyd's brittle hands survive 4 oz gloves?

    I would really enjoy seeing him get embarrassed so I hope this actually happens. But I firmly believe this is just a bunch B.S from Dana lol.

    Floyd loves money but there's no money in the world that would make him enter the octagon to get embarrassed.

    Loved McGregor's response to Floyd saying he wasn't doing it. Classic.

    Even if he fought, they would have to give him some drunk, out of shape, amateur fighter for him to have a chance of winning, and the UFC would be a laughing stock for giving him an opponent like that.

    I could see Mayweather become a partner if Zuffa Boxing ever gets off the ground. I could also see him buying into ownership as well.

    I just want this nonsense to go away. So many good MMA fights coming up in the next month or so and we're talking about freak show fights again.

    I don't mean to always bash MM on here but I love how he'll jump up 20 pounds to fight Mayweather in a second but still won't fight TJ. And yes obviously it's because of the money, but if you consider yourself the P4P GOAT, you shouldn't be running from TJ.

    Isn't MMA without grappling basically kickboxing?

    Dana is putting all the risk on DJ and all the reward on TJ. DJ would not be getting a raise or monetary incentive to fight TJ, but TJ would, at least according to DJ. If true, I'd tell Dana to pound sand too.

    He just signed a new contract a year ago, if he doesn't like it he only has himself to blame.

    Floyd will never put himself in a situation where he could get hurt, not after he talks about the way Roger is now. It was very obvious he would never fight in MMA, he hasn't put himself in danger of getting stopped since his PBF days.

    Didn't he swap Roger for his father after he bled a little against Cotto? I think that's the last fight he was trading punches against his opponent. I know health problems have been cited but I feel like he got demoted because Roger is more offensive minded than Floyd Sr and was pushing him to fight more offensively.

    Nobody serious thinks Floyd would fight in an MMA match.

    I fully believe that the UFC and Floyd could be talking about a boxing match under Zuffa Boxing, though. If they are serious about getting into boxing, what better way than with the biggest PPV draw ever? Give Floyd enough money and/or a stake in Zuffa boxing and I'm sure he'd at least listen.
