Floyd Mayweather Confirms MMA Training With Tyron Woodley

“My wrestling game is not that bad. On a scale of 1 to 10, it’s probably a 7.”

Continuously fueling the media, Floyd Mayweather says he will transition into mixed martial arts with the help of MMA champion Tyron Woodley. The retired boxer says him and the UFC fighter have been in touch about training. Floyd even offered a self-assessment of his skills:

“I can wrestle. My wrestling game is not that bad. On a scale from 1 to 10, it’s probably a 7. And I think we can take it up to a 9 if possible. Of course, my hand game, on a scale of 1 to 10, is 100. My kicking game, on a scale from 1 to 10, is probably a 4.”

Some are skeptical about the move, citing major differences between MMA and boxing. Still, UFC President Dana White has mentioned in the past the possibility of having Mayweather. Moreover, the boxing champion is known to keep his word.

Watch the full clip below and let us know if you think Floyd will be able to successfully make the transition. To learn more about Tyron Woodley, take a look at highlights from 2017 below. In other sports news, the FIFA anthem has arrived.
