Floyd Mayweather Vs. Conor McGregor 2 may actually happen in the Octagon

Though the heavily modified MMA match hasn't been confirmed by either UFC president Dana White or anyone in Floyd Mayweather's camp, there hasn't been a denial either.

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor have possibly arranged a rematch with some significant modifications to MMA rules, according to Forbes citing Omar Al Raisi, editor in chief of The Sports Journal, Dubai's largest sporting news outlet. 

 

Al Raisi says the fight will be co-promoted by Mayweather, McGregor and the UFC, and provided a rundown of the rules and regulations of the bout.

Fighting with light 4-ounce gloves will benefit Mayweather, as will the fact that the undefeated boxer won't need to learn any takedown moves or kick defense. In fact, it appears that McGregor's main advantage will the feel of the more abundant space that Mayweather will have to work within the octagon.

 

There's been no official word from either Mayweather, McGregor, or the UFC but there hasn't been a denial either.  

 

Stay tuned.

It is possible I do come back, but if I do come back, it has to be in the Octagon. I spoke with my team. I spoke with [adviser] Al Haymon. Al Haymon says no. I spoke with Showtime. I spoke with [Showtime parent company] CBS. If I do come back, Showtime and CBS have to be involved.
