Chuck Liddell: ‘If they let Floyd in the UFC, it’s because they want to hurt him’

Floyd Mayweather Jr. has perhaps earned a spot among some of the best boxers of all time. The undefeated pugilist earned a record of 49-0 before slipping into retirement. Then, Mayweather returned for one final brawl inside the squared circle earlier this year. On Aug. 26, the undefeated pugilist went toe-to-toe with UFC superstar Conor McGregor.

Mayweather earned a TKO victory over “Notorious” in one of the year’s most highly anticipated sporting events, earning each fighter a massive payday. Then, Mayweather returned to retirement with a perfect professional record of 50-0. That being said, rumors have since been spreading that the boxer is in talks with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) about making an appearance inside the octagon.

TMZ Sports recently caught up with UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell to get the former light heavyweight champion’s thoughts on the matter. Liddell stated “He can’t fight in the UFC. No, why would he do that? He’s going to get hurt. Whoever is fighting him, they want to hurt him.”
