Well, things just got a little more interesting.

This weekend, former boxing pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. spoke with Showtime’s Steve Farhood and fueled the flames regarding the rumor of a potential boxing match against reigning UFC Featherweight Champion “The Notorious” Conor McGregor.

“It’s really not a rumor,” Mayweather told Farhood on Friday night. “The fight may happen. We really don’t know, as of right now. As of right now. But do I think the fight will happen? Absolutely.”

Mayweather would elaborate, explaining that it has to be a boxing match, but because of the style McGregor has used to obtain victories inside the Octagon, he feels a standup fight is perfect for both guys.

“We’re the A-side, of course. It has to be a boxing match, because most fights that Conor McGregor won inside the Octagon, he was a stand-up guy. So I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be a tough fight for me.”

Mayweather concluded, “We really don’t know as of right now, but there’s been a lot of talk, and hopefully we can make the fight happen.”

According to UFC President Dana White, it’s only a matter of time before UFC owners Lorenzo Fertitta and Frank Fertitta buy an NFL franchise.

White addressed the rumors about the Fertitta brothers buying the Oakland Raiders and moving the team to Las Vegas, Nevada, during his appearance on “The Jim Rome Show.”

“Here’s the thing — as you know you can’t own an NFL team if you’re involved with casinos. So if they were really making a serious move at the Raiders, they’d be selling Station Casinos not the UFC,” White said on Friday.

White continued, “But it is 100-percent a fact, they are hardcore football fans and I promise you one day the Fertitta brothers will own an NFL team. No doubt about it.”
