UFC President Dana White met Floyd Mayweather back in December 2019. The two were pictured sitting courtside in a basketball game between LA Clippers and Boston Celtics. Naturally, there arose rumors of two of them collaborating for an event.
Mayweather has been boxing’s biggest draw for years, and White has been the biggest MMA promoter in the world. Unfortunately, their plan didn’t come to fruition due to the surge of COVID 19.
“The world imploded after we were talking about doing some things together. I’m just focused on running my business right now,” White told ESPN in a recent interview.
White and Mayweather have collaborated before. The undefeated boxer fought former UFC two-division champion, Conor McGregor, for his 50th professional fight inside the squared ring.
Fans haven’t stopped speculating about a potential rematch between the two biggest stars in combat sports. But dreams of that are far fetched. McGregor is now totally motivated to recapture UFC gold as he returns at UFC 257 on January 23 against Dustin Poirier in a heart-pounding clash in the lightweight division.
The 50-0 record-holder and former multiple weight division boxing champion, Mayweather will return to action on February 20 as he will fight YouTuber Logan Paul in a charity boxing match.
Mayweather was last seen in action in 2018, as he defeated young Japanese prospect Tenshin Nasukawa inside one round. It will be interesting to see him return to action once more.
