If Floyd Mayweather does decide to dip his toe in the MMA world, he’s got a pretty good teacher. Welterweight (and current champion) Tyron Woodley is going to be his coach, but that’s not all. It’sA�already set up.
But how did this come about?
“I saw him at the Jordan party during (NBA) All-Star weekend. We started chatting about training MMA and we decided let’s connect, let’s hook up in Vegas and do some training and get him ready for MMA.”
So, what makes Woodley want to do this? There’s one reason in particular, of course.
“Floyd Mayweather’s one of the best strikers of all time. How many guys in the UFC that can’t wrestle and can’t grapple that consider themselves a standup fighter, but they have to stand across one of the greatest strikers ever, they gonna be in a world of smoke.”
Mayweather, of course, has teased a trip into the octagon, but UFC president Dana White isn’t having it so far.
