Floyd Mayweather Still Negotiating Possible Fight With UFC

Floyd Mayweather made a handshake agreement with UFC President Dana White about promoting a fight together back in 2019. However, the event was delayed this year following the COVID-19 pandemic and some personal tragedies for Mayweather; both his ex (Josie Harris) and uncle (Roger Mayweather) died within the course of one week. However, in a new interview with TMZ, White says that he and Mayweather are still discussing working together.

"Floyd and I still have dialogue and go back and forth. We're still interested on both sides," White said.

TMZ went on to ask White about who a potential opponent would be. They brought up the name Conor McGregor. Mayweather and McGregor fought in 2017, with Mayweather taking home the victory in 10 rounds via TKO.

"No no no. I know he would rematch Conor McGregor but I don't know if you heard about this but Conor McGregor's retired," White said.

McGregor announced his retirement in June.
