Floyd Mayweather Reportedly Applying For MMA License

In the odds, set by online booking agent, Westgate, Mayweather is the overwhelming underdog against McGregor in a hypothetical fight that may take place this fall.

He didn't confirm when he will apply or when he'll begin training with Tyron Woodley, but he did reveal how long he needs to be ready for a fight.

'Even if it takes 6 to 8 months - whatever it takes, ' he added. "On a scale of 1 to 10, it's probably a 7".

He also rated his wrestling game as 7/10.

Recently there has been speculation suggesting that "Money" could be set to cross-over to ultimate fighting, in which Mayweather's previous opponent Conor McGregor is under contract. "It's all about presenting the right numbers and of course, they gonna present the right numbers and we gonna make it happen".

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.

Mayweather told TMZ he is planning to apply for a license that will allow him to compete in mixed martial arts, with the goal of making his UFC debut some point in the near future. Just last month, Mayweather posted a couple of different videos of himself in an MMA cage, including one where he says, "2018, Floyd "Money" Mayweather, MMA".

Mayweather, who boasts a professional record of 50-0, is confident in his abilities to transition from boxing to MMA - the reverse of what McGregor did for last year's fight.
