Dana White: Floyd Mayweather fight in UFC 'ain't happening' with Showtime involved

Boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather might come out of retirement for another fight, but only if it's in the UFC.

Floyd Mayweather said on a Showtime Boxing telecast Saturday night that he would only come out of retirement for a UFC fight. "But as you know, and everybody know, I go into retirement, I come back". "It is possible I do come back, but if I do come back, it has to be in the Octagon". I want to do it if the money is right.

Mayweather also commented on Conor McGregor's attack with a guard rail on a bus carrying UFC fighters at the Barclays Center in NY last Thursday.

"Showtime, CBS, if we can get together with Dana White and UFC and make a mega fight happen, one fight, it could be against Conor McGregor, we don't know".

"Conor McGregor was a guy that people looked up to - yes he was cocky, yes he was brash - but he would do things he said he would do, but he never did anything like this".

"Meaning, I know that when we fought, we both sold the fight, the world loved what we did". The Irishman's future is uncertain after he attacked a bus carrying UFC fighters and employees at the Barclays Center ahead of UFC 223 on Thursday.

Thursday forecast: overnight snow could bring up to 3 inches
The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for the Butte/Blackfoot region from 3 am to 6 pm Thursday . This ought to be our first soaking rain since March 21, with some rainfall totals above 1 inch across our part of the state.

Floyd Mayweather is the greatest boxer of a generation. McGregor is now facing multiple charges in NY and is due back for a hearing on June 14.

If Mayweather does go into an MMA fight, he said it would be weighing in at 145 pounds.

So will Mayweather actually set foot in the Octagon at some point?

"I would not box again", Mayweather told ESPN.

The pair clashed in Las Vegas last August with Mayweather taking his record to 50-0 as he stopped Notorious in the tenth round.

"Absolutely", Mayweather said, when asked if he would return to professional fighting.
