The dream "billion dollar" superfights are now starting to become a reality.
UFC president Dana White confirmed Saturday that Floyd Mayweather has agreed to terms to multiple fights that would see the TMT president face the main training partner of Conor McGregor and “let me bandlg bro” all-star, Artem “The Hammer” Lobov, White told CNN affiliate TNT. "I'm starting to work on the Lobov side now.
"The Mayweather side is done," White told CNN affiliate TNT. "I'm starting to work on the Lobov side now.
"I'm not saying the fight will happen but I got one side done. Now it's time to work on the other.
You know, if we can come to a deal with (adviser) Al Haymon and Mayweather, the fight's gonna happen."
The main question surrounding the potential fight is the rules the fighters would adhere to, with many concerned that Lobov’s vastly superior ground skills would make a standard MMA match a walkover.
When asked what the regulations would be, White said: "Fighting."
In December, Mayweather boldly claimed a fight between him and anyone in the UFC willing to man up and throw some hands, would make $1 billion.
