-C.M. Punk vs. Floyd Mayweather in UFC? CampusSports.com speculated about it on the heels of Dana White saying they are interested in bringing Floyd into UFC. “We’re interested in doing something with Floyd. Everything is a realistic possibility,” said White. “Mayweather vs. McGregor f—ing happened. Anything is possible.” Campus Sports story excerpt: “The comments from White come not long after Mayweather himself said he was offered a “four or five-fight deal” from the UFC that he claimed could earn him $1 billion. While that type of money is highly unlikely, it looks like there actually are some discussions going on. If Mayweather comes to the Octagon, who should he face? Would a grudge match with Conor McGregor make sense? How about a bout with another inexperienced superstar like CM Punk? The options are certainly intriguing, so what would you like to see?” More details at MMATorch.com including Zack Heydorn’s take on this news HERE.
