“UFC ain’t shit” - Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Ok, it's bound to happen... professional athletes trash talking each other but to take a swing at a totally different sport and at fighters that would never, ever meet unless it was outside of a night club fighting over an ex-porn actress, well...

I understand what Floyd is doing. He's not stupid. He's trying to hype up his pay per view fight against Oscar De La Hoya on May 5th and also draw in some of the record breaking Pay Per View audience that Mixed Martial Arts currently has that Boxing is trying to regain.

Here are some gems that spewed out of the mouth of Floyd Mayweather Jr. recently in a conference call this past Wednesday.

Here are some notable quotes from "Pretty Boy Floyd":

“UFC ain’t shit,”

“It ain’t but a fad. Anyone can put a tattoo on their head and get in a street fight.”

“We should put Liddell against a good heavyweight, under Mayweather Promotions, and if Chuck wins, then I’ll give him a million dollars out of my own pocket.”

“These are guys who couldn’t make it in boxing, so they do (MMA). Boxing is the best sport in the world and it’s here to stay.”

You can read the rest of the swill from the mouth of PBF right here.

MMA is multi-dimensional and deserves more respect than what Floyd mentioned so for that, I hope De La Hoya punches him hard over 500 times in the face the night they fight and wins... sweet science? NOT!


  1. Didn't he hear that the UFC vs. Pride debate is over? Oh wait... he's talking about boxing? Bwahahahahah! Boxing is cool and all, but the glory days of boxing are over. MMA is the evolution.

  2. I agree, Floyd needs to get with the times and realize that if he and De La Hoya don't put on a SPECTACLE of a boxing match on May 5, boxing is officially taking a back seat, if it hasn't already.

    Even De La Hoya respects MMA, as he has been helping Diego Sanchez with his training as posted on this blog.

    Floyd may be the best pound for pound boxer in the world, but his mouth runs a little too much for my taste.
