How would Mayweather do in the NBA, Arsenio? Or how about in the luge at the Sochi Olympics? Those are comparable questions.
Of course, White answered exactly in the way you’d expect him to.
“He’d get murdered in the UFC,” White said of Mayweather. “You go to a knife fight with a guy and the other guy has guns and chains and crowbars. There’s so many more weapons in the UFC then there are in boxing. So it makes no sense.”
No sense. None. Kind of like that question. To White’s credit, he did chide his own fighters for saying they could crossover and succeed in boxing, calling it “disrespect.”
You go to a knife fight with a guy and the other guy has guns and chains and crowbars.
“Guys always talk about this crossover stuff,” White said. “My guys think they can go over and box. Floyd thinking he can come over here to the UFC.”
