Floyd Mayweather seems a little jealous of the Conor McGregor-Khabib Nurmagomedov headlines, saying he'd fight the suspended UFC champion.

Like many in the fight game, Floyd Mayweather doesn't seem very retired recently, despite his son's insistence after his undefeated dad technically knocked out a glorified amateur from Ireland. However, he recently said he was "deadly serious," about a rematch against Manny Pacquiao, and now he's saying if there's enough money in it, he'll fight UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov:

Floyd Mayweather needs to go away. He should consider himself lucky he's made hundreds of millions of dollars fighting a past-his-prime Pacquiao and a UFC loudmouth who isn't even a champion anymore.

The most technically sound fighter ever either needs money, which would be pathetic considering his paydays, or he's jealous of the publicity McGregor and Nurmagomedov have created in the lead up to their fight and subsequent brawl. He should go to counseling and donate his millions to the Battered Women's Justice Project.

Mayweather called Donald Trump a "real man," after a hot mic caught the reality con man saying he liked to grab women by the pussy without their permission. By 2015, Mayweather had been credibly accused of violence against women seven times in the preceding 13 years, including his eldest daughter's mother, Melissa Brim, over child support. On that latter incident, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that he struck her in the face with a car door and pushed her into the car to repeatedly punch her again. He then threatened to beat his son if he called the police. This over child support, from a man whose estimated to have made close to a billion dollars. A half year later, while shopping with his daughter and Brim, Mayweather asked one of his friends to take his daughter away. He then punched Brim in the face and fled the scene before police arrived.
