Mayweather wants to bring some of what he’s good at — MAKING MONEY!!! — to MMA fighters.

“I want a lot of MMA fighters to get in touch with you because Mayweather Promotions, I look forward to putting on my first MMA show also and having me some MMA champions,” said Mayweather. “Like I said before, Floyd Mayweather loves to think outside the box. We’re not just one-dimensional. We’re very versatile and we have an open mind.”

And although recently retired fighter Wanderlei Silva took aim at his most recent employer, the UFC, raking them over the coals in his retirement video, Mayweather wasn’t putting a bullseye on any single MMA promoter… although the UFC is the Kleenex of the sport.

“When I get into the MMA game, I want them to make more money than they’re making because from what I hear, they’re not being treated fair,” he continued. “Once again, I don’t have nothing to say about nobody. I’m only talking about what I’m here to do. I’m here to treat fighters fair, I’m here to treat MMA fighters fair, and I feel that the talent should win.”

    Once the UFC pays its fighters a salary, or starts to pay them “fairly”. The sport will lose its teeth, fighting is all about the money and looking at the best and most ambitious fighters that thrive off of rewards and bonus money. The UFC is not the NFL, but it isnt boxing either.
