Ahead of the McGregor bout, Mayweather teased UFC and MMA fans that he'd enter the cage. Fans immediately called bullshit.
But is he actually going to swap the boxing gloves for 4oz MMA gloves.
According to UFC colour commentator, Mayweather is in talks over an MMA fight.
"Floyd talked about it. This is one thing I can tell you: Dana told me that Floyd wants to make a deal in the UFC. Like legitimately. I texted him, I go 'Is Floyd really talking about fighting MMA?' He goes 'Yeah, he's f**king crazy. I told him he'd get killed. But he's still talking about doing it," Rogan said via Craziest Sports Fight.

Mayweather, 40, continued to stoke the speculation about a return to fighting in a video he uploaded, last week.
He addressed a potential billion dollar contract. "You already know I'm a money-getting motherf**ker!"
"I'm Money May. They just called me not too long ago and asked me to come back. I can come right back to the UFC. If I want, I can go, I can come right back to the UFC, I can go fight in the Octagon.

"I can do a three or four fight deal in the Octagon and make a billion dollars. Remember, I'm Floyd 'Money' Mayweather, and you motherf**kers love me, and I love you motherf**kers," Mayweather added.
The former pound-for-pound king stopped McGregor in his boxing debut in the 10th round.
Yet, is a rematch on the cards, but in the famed Octagon? Watch this space.
