White claims to be meeting with Mayweather today

December 28, 2017

Dana White appeared on FS1’s “Undisputed” Thursday morning and revealed that he was meeting with Floyd Mayweather later in the day.  Although the retired boxer has claimed he is not fighting in the UFC, there could be another motive for the meeting.

While White is dangling the belief that Mayweather could fight in the octagon, don’t believe this to be true.  Mayweather’s legacy is important to him (especially his zero losses) and he wouldn’t fight in the octagon and made to look ridiculous.  What fans forget is that Mayweather is image-conscious when it comes to real fighting and he just would not do it.  But, he would go into business with White if he is serious about getting into boxing as White suggests in the video.

For those wondering, Zuffa filed for the trademark “Zuffa Boxing” in July of this year.  The USPTO examiner has requested it disclaim the word “boxing” in the mark in September 2017.  This is a formality with the trademark process.

Payout Perspective:

The meeting between Floyd Mayweather and Dana White is likely to discuss promoting.  Mayweather has a stable of fighters that train out of his gym and it would make sense that White would solicit Mayweather for boxers as well as promotional advice.  This would not come out with some sort of compensation of course.  We shall see what 2018 brings for Zuffa Boxing as its clear that the idea is becoming a reality.
