Floyd Mayweather Jr. Open for a Comeback Even in the Octagon

Floyd Mayweather Jr. Open for a Comeback Even in the Octagon”

"Whatever the odds Vegas puts on (a McGregor vs. Mayweather MMA fight), that's cute", Rogan said on the The Joe Rogan Experience.

Rogan discussed the possibility this week on his podcast, "The Joe Rogan Experience", after being informed that Mayweather's uncle recently joked about his nephew perhaps having to beat up on CM Punk (real name Phil Brooks) before jumping into a fight against McGregor.

"'Buster' Douglas was only 42-1 (against Mike Tyson)".

Because Conor's going to kick his legs out -- he's not even going to have a chance to come close enough. Conor's going to kick his f--ing legs out; he doesn't have any chance. "If this fight takes place, Floyd doesn't have a chance", Rogan said.

CM Punk is much heavier than Mayweather, but Rogan believes the latter would have a "real chance" if the two faced each other inside the cage.

Floyd Mayweather should be enjoying his retirement but if his twitter account is anything to go by there are some things that the multimillionaire boxer simply can't let go of. If the fight was to happen, I would almost be saying to Conor and pushing Conor to say, let's book that two or three weeks before a real one. He's still 50-0. That's insane.

From a matchmaking perspective, Mayweather - CM Punk would make a lot more sense no?

"He's on another level of everybody who is on another level".

We're now well into the month of February and still, we have virtually no idea what the future holds for the sport of MMA's biggest star, Conor McGregor.

He's had some serious surgeries on his hands.

"But he hasn't had hand problems in a while, so maybe he did fix it, and his hands looked f-king great against Conor".

As you might know already, Floyd Mayweather vs Conor McGregor happened previous year and was the second most bought PPV of all time behind Mayweather vs Pacquiao.

CM Punk is slightly larger than Floyd Mayweather is right now, so Punk may have to cut his weight to satisfy Mayweather's demands.

He captioned the snap: "A real elbow in a real fight". Floyd might be willing to do it. So it would be, I think, such a straight, easy fight that we could train realistically for it and then do a competitive MMA fight on the backend of it.
