Floyd Mayweather Jr. (50-0, 27 KOs) is five months removed from making upwards of $100 million to hand Conor McGregor (0-1, 0 KOs) his first ever defeat in professional boxing. We presume that’s the final fight of his hall-of-fame boxing career, but maybe he has something else up his sleeve.
On Tuesday, the 40-year-old tweeted video of himself entering an MMA cage at the Syndicate MMA gym in Las Vegas, Nevada. This groundbreaking, jaw-dropping, mesmerizing ten-second clip is a huge development for those who’ve long wanted to see Mayweather experience the MMA world.

Last month, UFC president Dana White said that they were talking to Mayweather about a potential UFC deal, saying that “anything is possible.” It’s a quote that came on the heels of Mayweather suggesting that he could hypothetically make $1 billion fighting multiple times in the Octagon. Following Dana’s comments, Mayweather quickly shot down the notion that he’ll actually make the switch to MMA.
As if this pressing information and gripping drama wasn’t enough, Conor McGregor quickly responded to Floyd’s video on Twitter.
Hahahaha very good. Keep up the good work my son.

The “Mayweather to MMA” speculation has reached its most compelling chapter yet. Perhaps grainy cell phone footage of Mayweather throwing a picture-perfect spinning back kick is on the horizon.
