Dana White: Floyd Mayweather fight in UFC 'ain't happening' with Showtime involved
So will Mayweather actually set foot in the Octagon at some point? " I would not box again ", Mayweather told ESPN. Boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather might come out of retirement for another fight, but only if it's in the UFC.

The date of the crime indicates the case may be outside the statute of limitations for filing of a criminal charge. Spacey is under investigation by the U.K.'s Scotland Yard for three alleged sexual assaults. Jackie Lacey announced the creation of said special task force, made up of veteran sex crimes prosecutors, to investigate the stream of locally reported sexual assault allegations coming out of Hollywood, including those against producer Harvey Weinstein and others. In the weeks that followed, Spacey's alleged victims came forward with countless claims against the actor ranging from sexual harassment to assault.

Spacey then went on to reveal that he is gay.

Kevin Spacey was first faced with allegations of sexual misconduct that were raised a year ago by Anthony Rapp, who accused the actor of sexually assaulting him when Rapp was 14 and Spacey was 26. Harry Dreyfuss, the son of actor Richard Dreyfuss, also has said that Spacey groped him in 2008 when he was 18 while his father was rehearsing a play at Spacey's London apartment. Spacey was 26 at the time. Spacey won a Golden Globe for best actor in a TV series for his role in the Netflix original in 2015.

In his initial statement acknowledging the scandal, Spacey used the moment to come out as an openly gay man - receiving widespread backlash from the LGBT community for his apparent attempt to reduce his punishment by publicly embracing his identity for the first time.
