Floyd Mayweather Jr. & Conor McGregor Address Fight Rumors: "It's possible."
First, Mayweather announced he may return to the ring, then a week later, we hear a rumor that it could be against UFC fighter Conor McGregor. This was quickly shot down as some type of internet hoax that will NEVER happen. The president of UFC, Dana White fueled that fire by saying “It’s not true, it’s just a tabloid story.” Now ultimately, what Dana White says is what goes. Mcgregor is under contract with the UFC and they don’t allow fighters to compete for other organizations. Over the weekend McGregor AND Mayweather teased the fight. Mayweather posted a picture on his instagram of him and Floyd with a caption that read: MMA vs BOXING. Before the Canelo-Khan fight Mayweather was asked the “McGregor fight” and he said. “It's possible. It's possible."
