Floyd Mayweather Responds To Fighting Conor McGregor In An MMA Super-Fight
But Mayweather, who retired undefeated with a 50-0 boxing record, explained why he wouldn't fight the 'Notorious' under MMA rules.
'Money' told Forbes: "No [I won't compete in MMA].
"I think just like how winning teams receive home-field advantage in the playoffs [...] you don't fix what isn't broken, and my record isn't broken."
McGregor, 32, made his UFC return in January and secured a sensational first-round win over Donald Cerrone in Las Vegas.
Mayweather and McGregor have continued to maintain their rivalry and haven't backed down from calling the other out when the opportunity presents itself.

And the former UFC double champ also claimed that a verbal agreement was made for the pair to fight in an MMA mega-fight.
"I know I'd beat Floyd, I'd beat Floyd if we rematched," McGregor said.
"When we rematch. He's not going to do a mixed martial arts bout like he said. It was supposed to be. It was supposed to be me boxing, then we'll do a mixed martial arts bout. That was what was said, and it came out of his mouth as well.
"It was not written, but it was a verbal agreement, right? And obviously that's not going to happen, and I'm not even [...] I'm not going to push him on that either.
"But I would like to box him, I think that would be a good rematch."
Mayweather insisted that he is "happily retired" for now, but he refused to rule out a potential boxing rematch with McGregor.
The boxing legend explained: "For now, I'm happily retired.
"You never know, but it would have to be worth it. Just like gambling right? Juice worth the squeeze no matter who the opponent is."
