IS Floyd Mayweather really plotting an unexpected venture into mixed martial arts and the UFC?

He has used social media to float the prospect. He tweeted a picture of himself wearing UFC MMA gloves in a fighting pose and captioned it ‘Billion Dollar Man.’ He also put out a video of himself standing in an Octagon, where he asked, “What are the odds?”

It seems unlikely, even though Mayweather did tempt UFC star Conor McGregor into a vastly lucrative boxing match last year. Mayweather halted McGregor but the two have been taking public swipes at each other since.
