While Floyd Mayweather has zero intentions of ever making the jump to MMA, the legendary prizefighter frequently finds his name in the mouth’s of MMA fighters who call him out.
Back when Ronda Rousey reigned as the UFC women’s bantamweight champion, there was much talk of how Rousey would do in a boxing match against Mayweather. After Rousey was defeated by Holly Holm, Conor McGregor began calling out Mayweather for a fight.
In the wake of McGregor’s UFC 196 loss to Nate Diaz, Floyd Mayweather’s uncle, Jeff Maywather, believes McGregor, Rousey, and UFC President Dana White should all stop mentioning his nephew.
He spoke to Fight Hype:
“They want to make it like Conor McGregor is so great because he went up and got his ass whooped. Wow! That’s great? You went up and got your ass whooped. It would have been great if you went up and did something and you actually won; just like Floyd did in 5 different weight classes.”
“You don’t get no credit for that. You chose to do that. You accepted that man’s challenge and talked plenty of (expletive) about him, then you got your ass whooped by him. You made fun of him teaching jiu-jitsu classes to children and then got choked the (expletive) out. You don’t get no damn honor points for that (expletive).”
Mayweather then took aim at former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, and UFC President Dana White:
“Everybody listening to Dana White talking that stupid (expletive) about Ronda Rousey beating up men and now they jump on Conor McGregor’s bandwagon, they don’t got no (expletive) wagon no more. That (expletive) is over with,” Mayweather said. “They don’t got nothing else to talk about. It shows that they need Floyd to promote their sport. They want to talk (expletive) about the man, but it just shows how much they truly need Floyd to promote their company.
“Floyd has never ever said that he wanted to fight one of them. He never said, “I’ll beat Ronday Rousey,” or “I’ll beat Conor McGregor.” Like I said, they had they little moment of fame. McGregor’s lasted almost a year and Rousey’s lasted about a year and a half. That (expletive) is over with now. They can shut the (expletive) up about that dumb (expletive). They can shut the (expletive) up about what a MMA fighter can do to Floyd Mayweather because ain’t (expletive) going to happen to Floyd.”
