Floyd Mayweather's response to Conor McGregor controversy is a bit rich

Floyd Mayweather's response to Conor McGregor controversy is a bit rich”

Mayweather, who is rumoured to fancy going for part II against McGregor following their boxing fight, but this time in UFC, spoke out about Conor's chaos during a Showtime broadcast in the US.

"I feel that when you have reached such high status you have to carry yourself in a classy way", Mayweather said at the middleweight clash between Erislandy Lara and Jarrett Hurd in Las Vegas, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal's Gilbert Manzano. It is possible I do come back. "Me, I can do what I want, when I want, how I want to".

UFC president Dana White says Floyd Mayweather "knows the money's right" and that's why he's entertaining the idea of fighting inside the Octagon.

"I'm Floyd Mayweather", he said. "Outside the ring you have to carry yourself as a gentleman".

Speaking following UFC 223 in New York City, UFC president Dana White said he's sure Mayweather would be well-compensated if he made a decision to fight in the UFC. Yes, but if I do come back it has to be in the Octagon.

The American, who retired from boxing after defeating McGregor with a ideal 50-0 professional record, has been linked with a rematch, this time in the UFC octagon.

McGregor was freed by a NY judge on $US50,000 ($A65,000) bail on Friday after being charged with assault for his role in a violent attack at a media event to promote UFC 223. Both posted bail and have been released with their court date set for June 14.

"McGregor has other things to deal with", said Mayweather. The son and nephew of two professional boxers, Mayweather has proven to be one of the greatest defensive specialists in the history of the sport, conjuring the likes of Willie Pep and Pernell Whitaker.

Jonas Knox thinks that if Mayweather decides to make the jump to UFC, he will get beaten handily by about 99 percent of the active roster. "I'm Floyd Mayweather", he said.
