Mayweather To Apply For MMA License

Boxing icon Floyd Mayweather Jr. really wants a taste of that MMA life.

The post leaves little to the imagination as it shows an image headlined "Certified Killa vs Certified B***h", which depicts Mayweather inflicting horrific damage on his arch rival Conor McGregor in a fight that is clearly being conducted under MMA rules. Given his amateur status in the discipline, it seems unlikely the UFC would immediately have Mayweather fight McGregor, who is the sport's top star and arguably the best pound-for-pound fighter on the planet.

Now Mayweather is stating that he's planning to submit the paperwork to get licensed as an MMA fighter, and more than likely he would pursue that license in Nevada.

Mayweather, who improved his boxing record to 50-0 with a 10th round TKO of UFC champion Conor McGregor on August 26, 2017, has been hinting at entering the Octogen for much of the last few months.

"Everything takes time. Eventually, we're gonna apply for the license, and hopefully we can fight", Mayweather told TMZ.

As reported last week, TMZ interviewed Mayweather and he believes it will take between six to eight months for him to get "everything right".

"Floyd Mayweather is interested in taking an MMA bout, maybe a few of 'em", Woodley said on The Hollywood Beatdown.

There have been rumblings of the UFC booking a rematch between Mayweather and McGregor. "My wrestling game is not that bad". One a scale from one to 10, I would say it's probably a seven. And I think we can take it up to a 9 if possible. "My kicking game, on a scale of 1 to 10, is probably a 4".
