Floyd Mayweather isn’t just the biggest name in all of boxing, but he’s one of the biggest in all of combat sports.

Although the 50-0 undefeated legend’s days of fighting are likely behind him, that doesn’t mean he’s staying out of the public eye. “Money” recently took to social media to make a claim that certainly got a lot of mixed martial arts (MMA) fans talking.

“Money” posted a highlight clip of fighter Makhmud “Mach” Muradov. Mayweather dubbed Muradov the “best MMA fighter in the world.” The claim opened up a lot of chatter from fans in his replies.

ESPN’s Ariel Helwani shed some light on the situation. Helwani mentioned that, from what he is told, Muradov is the only MMA fighter currently signed to Mayweather’s “The Money Team” (TMT) promotion.

With that being said, this is simply a brilliant promotional move by Mayweather, using his former rivalry with Conor McGregor to get some shine on one of his fighters. Muradov currently holds a record of 21-6 and is on an 11-fight win streak. He hasn’t been defeated since 2016. It will be interesting to see if the middleweight one day makes his way to the UFC.

What do you think about Mayweather dubbing Muradov the “best MMA fighter in the world”?

Former UFC middleweight champion believes the UFC won’t allow Floyd Mayweather and Khabib Nurmagomedov to have a boxing match.

There has been talk of the two combat sports stars boxing each other, with Nurmagomedov’s manager even recently claiming Mayweather is begging for it to happen. Bisping, for one, would watch it, even though he knows Mayweather will come out on top.

That said, he doesn’t expect the UFC to go along with it:

“Not really [interested in it], but I would watch it for sure,” Bisping told Omnisport. “I’d definitely tune in. Mayweather would win, we all know that, but it’s always interesting to see somebody at the top of mixed martial arts taking on a boxer. But I don’t think that’s gonna happen, I really don’t.

“Mayweather talks about it, Khabib talks about it, I don’t think the UFC will allow it because we’re all under contract with the UFC.”

Of course, Conor McGregor was allowed to box Mayweather back in 2017 while under UFC contract. However, that was a huge exception and if the UFC continues to allow it to happen, things could go wrong according to Bisping:

“They broke the mold in doing that with McGregor,” he added. “I think if they continue to do that and form a pattern, then more and more fighters are going to want to do that and it starts creating legal problems with contracts and things like that.”

Do you agree with Bisping?

Talk of a rematch between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao is once again beginning to heat up.

Pacquiao comes off a WBA welterweight title victory over Keith Thurman this past weekend. “The Pac-Man” has since been showered with questions about a potential rematch with “Money” after their initial meeting in 2015. Mayweather won the bout via decision, however, it was later revealed Pacquiao was fighting with a torn rotator cuff.

All the talk about a potential rematch seems to have upset Mayweather, who posted the following lengthy statement on Instagram:

“I find it real ironic how every time Pacquiao’s name is brought up in the media, my name is always attached to it. This man’s entire legacy and career has been built off its association with my name and it’s about time you all stop using my brand for clout chasing and clickbait and let that man’s name hold weight of its own.

“For years, all you heard was that ” Floyd is afraid of Manny Pacquiao”. But what’s funny is, when we finally fought, I won so easily that everyone had to eat their words! All of the so called boxing experts, critics and jealous American “fan base” either went mute and ran for cover or made every excuse in the world as to why I should give Manny Pacquiao a rematch.

“My take on all this bullshit is that y’all are just upset that I broke Rocky Marciano’s record and hate the fact that a Black, high school dropout outsmarted you all by beating all odds and retiring undefeated while maintaining all my faculties simply by making smart choices and even smarter investments. Ultimately, I will always have the last laugh!”

Pacquiao swiftly responded to Mayweather’s comments with a brief message on his Twitter page:

“.@FloydMayweather You come to my fight and then use my name in a post but I’m the one that is trying to stay relevant? if you want to be relevant again… #MayPac2

Mayweather then posted another lengthy response on his Instagram page:

“SWIPE LEFT Let’s stick to the facts! Bob Arum is no longer your promoter, so when it comes to @mayweatherpromotions & PBC events I’m the HNIC! 
Bottom line, I make more money than you; I beat you, then I signed you!

“I was only at your fight supervising you, my employee, as any real BOSS would do. You made $10Million for 12 rounds, when I just made $9M in under 3 minutes playing around in an exhibition with a pizza delivery guy! I beat you mentally, physically and financially! 
Remember, you fight cause you have to, I fight when I want to!”

Pacquiao responded with one final blow, suggesting he’ll draw up a fight contract and send it to Mayweather for him to sign:

“Excuse me Floyd, your name has not been on any of my PBC contracts. But if you would like to be on the next one, I will have one drawn up and sent to you. #CounterfeitMoney

What do you think about a possible rematch between Mayweather and Pacquiao?
