Floyd Mayweather Jr. Open for a Comeback Even in the Octagon

Floyd Mayweather CM Punk

Rogan basically shot down the idea of Mayweather being competitive in an MMA fight against current UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor. Additionally, Floyd's uncle, Jeff Mayweather, recently joked that Punk might make a suitable first opponent for Floyd rather than trying to go straight at McGregor.

Buster Douglas was only like 42-1 [against Mike Tyson].

Mayweather vs Punk in an MMA fight would create headlines around the world and is a good warmup for both fighters. Conor's going to kick his f--ing legs out; he doesn't have any chance.

Punk, however, has not addressed Rogan's comment or if he is willing to fight Mayweather in the octagon. Thus, what about the promotion booking Mayweather against Punk?

"I know that probably comes across a certain way, but I can only say what I'm thinking, I can only say what I feel if that was to happen, it's not the type of fight that Conor's gonna have to do a real specific 12 weeks for, and then take three or four months off afterwards, and completely get ready for another one". And an MMA throwdown between Mayweather and CM Punk obviously would have tons of mainstream appeal, possibly meaning big bucks for everyone. "I say this because Floyd's broken his hands multiple times", Rogan added.

CM Punk is much heavier than Mayweather, but Rogan believes the latter would have a "real chance" if the two faced each other inside the cage. Maybe they've cured it, and maybe it's fine, but we've all known for the longest time, Floyd preferred puffier gloves when he's fought. This is to imply that Mayweather had no chance of defeating McGregor in a "real" UFC fight.

"But he hasn't had hand problems in a while, so maybe he did fix it, and his hands looked f-king great against Conor".

McGregor's social media channels have been heavily hinting at a UFC comeback, with a rematch with Floyd Mayweather rumoured to be on the cards.

CM Punk is slightly larger than Floyd Mayweather is right now, so Punk may have to cut his weight to satisfy Mayweather's demands. "It's really possible. They really might rake it in with that fight". And while a Mayweather vs. CM Punk fight seems outlandish on the surface, Rogan believes it might be insane enough to work.
