    I think Mayweather is a bit of a stretch. Like someone else mentioned, he loves money and is used to getting 20-30mil per fight. You know Dana isnt going to pay him that.

    5/7 rounds would be cool.

    UFC NYE show in Madison Square Garden, or a major network TV deal.

    Agree. I just don't think he has the money to pay Mayweather to fight in the UFC. And if he did pay him that much, he better get ready to pay other fighters a whole, whole lot more or he is going to alienate the fighters already present in the UFC. Just can't see him doing it.

    He's basically retired from boxing for a few years (Mayweather) at least, so to say he's looking for a big pay day is probably incorrect. If he was going to fight I think it would be more for the love of fighting/pride, than a 20 million dollar paycheque. I think the kid is fucking immature as shit, and I doubt he's like I just stated above, but I want to believe he at least takes one thing serious and that's fighting.

    I really hope if this happens there is an exception with the HW devision. They should be limited to 3/5. Imagine a Sylvia vs Vera that went on even longer.... :bowdown::rofl:

    they cant just change it to 5/7 rounds while most of the rest of the mma world is still 3/5.

    i dont think that is going to happen. i cant see every heavy going 5 round like stated above. and if fights go any longer we will just see less and less in a 3 hour ppv slot.

    I'm guessing he's either coming out of the closet or it's got something to do with the WEC and UFC.
