Woodley Offers To Train Mayweather For UFC
One of the most dominating narratives of 2018 has been whether or not Floyd Mayweather will step inside the Octagon. Now, one of UFC’s best has offered to train Mayweather.
On his TMZ show, Hollywood Beatdown, the UFC welterweight champion has spoken with the undefeated boxer about training him for an MMA debut.
“I saw him at the Jordan party during (NBA) All-Star weekend,” Woodley said this week on the show.
“We started chatting about training MMA and we decided let’s connect, let’s hook up in Vegas and do some training and get him ready for MMA.”
Woodley is optimistic about Mayweather’s chances in an MMA fight, and believes that the retired boxer would “only 2 1/2 months” to prepare for the UFC, that is if he faces someone with a similar skillset.
“Floyd Mayweather’s one of the best strikers of all-time,” Woodley said. “How many guys in the UFC that can’t wrestle and can’t grapple that consider themselves a standup fighter, but they have to stand across one of the greatest strikers ever, they gonna be in a world of smoke.”
And while nothing is confirmed, Woodley claims that they are “already getting it set up.”
