UFC and Floyd Mayweather Jr. are discussing a deal that would bring the undefeated boxer into the octagon ring, according to UFC president Dana White.

“We’re talking to Floyd about doing a UFC deal,” White told ESPN.

“We’re interested in doing something with Floyd. Everything is a realistic possibility. Mayweather vs. McGregor happened. Anything is possible.”

Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) returned from a two-year retirement to defeat McGregor (0-1 in boxing) via 10th-round TKO in the Irish star’s pro boxing debut.

Earlier this month, during a live media stream, Mayweather said he could come right back to the UFC.

“They just called me not too long ago and asked me to come back,” said Mayweather via FightHype.

“I can come right back. If I wanted to, I can come right back to the UFC. I can go fight in the Octagon. I can do a three- or four-fight deal in the Octagon and make a billion dollars. Remember, I’m Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather.”
