FLOYD MAYWEATHER SAYS says the UFC has made him a huge offer to return to combat sports.

In a live Periscope video uploaded by, the 15-time world boxing champion told fans that he could “come back” to UFC, fight “in the Octagon,” and “do a three or four-fight deal and make $1 billion,” or £745 million.

“They just called me not too long ago and asked me to come back,” he said. “I can come right back. If I want to, I can come right back to the UFC.”

Mayweather beat UFC’s biggest star in August when he scored a technical knockout over Conor McGregor in a boxing ring.

After the bout, McGregor lauded Mayweather’s skillset and said the American could excel in UFC.

McGregor said Mayweather was “strong in the clinch” with a “great understanding of frames and head position.”

“He has some very strong tools he could bring into mixed martial arts for sure,” McGregor said.
