Floyd Mayweather Explains Why He’s The Biggest Name In MMA

Floyd “Money” Mayweather believes he is the biggest name in both boxing and mixed martial arts.

During a recent interview, Mayweather said he was the biggest name in MMA despite having never fought in an MMA fight. Mayweather claimed to be the biggest star in both boxing and MMA while talking about his recent boxing match with UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor.

“There are two names in combat sports. There are two names, Mayweather and McGregor,” Mayweather said. “And with me being gone two years, I was still the biggest name. Even with me being retired, I’m still the biggest name in boxing as well as MMA. I’m the biggest name. Period.”

Last month, Floyd Mayweather improved his boxing record to a perfect 50-0 after he defeated McGregor. The UFC champion looked good throughout the fight, but as time went on, he started to fatigue. In round 10, Mayweather managed to land multiple punches in a row that resulted in him earning a TKO victory. In the end the fight was a massive success for Mayweather who earned hundreds of millions of dollars in one of the most watched pay per view events of all time.
