A definitive announcement on McGregor's UFC future has yet to be made following his big boxing payday and another of Mayweather's arch-rivals - legendary former eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao - recently set tongues wagging of another high-profile clash inside the ring.
While McGregor is still technically under contract with the UFC, ESPN report that the two sides have held talks over restructuring the deal before he commits to fighting again. So, if true, a lawsuit would be forthcoming. I can do a three or fight deal and the octagon and make a billion dollars.
There would likely have to be a lot more discussion, so it's unclear if it would actually happen.
Mayweather has retired on several occasions in the past, only to come back when a lucrative fight would present itself.
"But I'm gonna tell you all the truth", Mayweather said.
Apple didn't invest in Finisar
The iPhone maker came under fire in 2016 from President Donald Trump for basing much of its manufacturing in China. The deal with Finisar demonstrates Apple's ability to play king-maker among component suppliers.
"They just called me not too long ago and ask me to come back", said Mayweather.
What do you make of this rant from Floyd Mayweather?
On Nov. 27, TMZ Sports reported the 40-year-old "has been telling people close to him that he's considering a 51st fight-and he's been training like a maniac in the gym", although there has yet to be any "official movement" on that front.
"If Mayweather wants to come over and fight in the UFC then do it".
"At the end of the day after all that paper, they keep saying Floyd bought this girl this, Floyd bought this girl that". You heard me? Ain't nobody do it better than me. If I want, I can go, I can come right back to the UFC, I can go fight in the Octagon. "I've done it in the best style, I've done it flashy, I've done it flamboyant, I've done it my way, I kept 100% of the revenue, and I'm own motherfuckin" boss. "I don't think it's fair for fighters to sit out for 12 months, with no injury".
