    Maybe they should have a tag team event. Money May and Diaz in one corner; Pacquiao and MacGregor in the other. Alternating rounds of Boxing and MMA. First team to get three knockdowns or a KO wins. A man can dream right?

    Money talks. Regardless of the expected outcome, the names would sell tickets. This fight happening wouldn't surprise me in the least.

    The poster was created as a "what-if" hypothetical thing to get a conversation started... there are no plans for an actual fight. UFC's existing contract w/Conor would preclude it anyway. And I'm told Mayweather would not be interested in diluting his payday by co-promoting an event w/UFC.
    That being said... money talks. In this case if it talks loud enough and long enough then sure, both parties are interested in making it happen. It's an open secret here that Mayweather is chasing that "50 and 0."

    I think the pre-fight "hype" would be entertaining as hell, but I agree with those above who indicate a very calculating, stick and run performance by Mayweather, which while it works for scoring leads to a pretty boring fight. I'd expect Conor would do an awful lot of lunging to try and create the brawl he would likely be superior in, but Floyd's made a career of avoiding that. I don't know why this would be any different.

    Wonder what the stipulations would be and if UFC would allow it to happen.

    I'm sure UFC will require they make what they do on a card featuring Mcg. Will Mcg be happy with what is left on his end?
