Floyd Mayweather's uncle, Jeff Mayweather, has said something interesting regarding his nephew's MMA debut. Something insane. "Buster" Douglas was only 42-1 (in the odds against Mike Tyson). Clearly, CM Punk, who lost handily to Mickey Gall at UFC 203 in September 2016 in his only MMA fight to date, would fall under that category.
"I'd nearly insist that in that fight Conor shoots a double leg early, because I'd be nearly annoyed if he went in there and put him away quickly with MMA striking".
Speaking last week, White said: "Floyd said leading up to the fight with Conor that he would do both [boxing and MMA]". Diaz then joined in by posting a photo of him on top of McGregor throwing punches.
Punk, however, has not addressed Rogan's comment or if he is willing to fight Mayweather in the octagon. And an MMA throwdown between Mayweather and CM Punk obviously would have tons of mainstream appeal, possibly meaning big bucks for everyone. The reason why I say this because Floyd's broken his hands multiple times. "(Against CM Punk), Floyd's got a real chance", says Rogan.
But UFC expert Joe Rogan thinks a second contest between the two under Mixed Martial Arts rules would leave Mayweather with "no chance" and would rather see ex-WWE man Punk fight the 50-0 boxer instead. But he hasn't had hand problems in a while.
McGregor lost to Mayweather in a boxing match past year but there's been talk a rematch could be on, this time in the Octagon.
Mayweather vs. Punk might be surprisingly competitive. So what about a fight between Mayweather and CM Punk?
"You could kind of do that one and fit it in on the night of his real fight".
