Quote didn't fit the title. He said: “Who’s Rich Franklin? There’s 8 year old kids just starting out in my gym who punch better than that guy. More smack talking is bellow.

http://cagereport.net/

Floyd Mayweather will be going head to head against the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) with his scheduled bout against Mexican boxing sensation Juan Manuel Marquez on September the 19th. Mayweather looks to prove the point that Boxing is still the king of combat sports, fighting on a night that coincides with a UFC PPV event. This battle between boxing and the UFC was by design as Mayweather chose to have his fight on the night of UFC 103. Saturday night serves as a major indicator of whether boxing can compete against the UFC any longer. Mayweather is beyond confident it can.

Obviously shaken, and left with a feeling that UFC PPV buys will suffer – The President of the UFC Dana White released a video earlier this week in attempt to persuade Mixed Martial Arts fans to purchase UFC 103 rather than the Mayweather/Marquez ppv. Mayweather, never one to back down in a war of words, addressed the issue at a pre-fight press conference in L.A early this week, When asked how he feels about going head to head with ‘UFC 103 Franklin vs. Beflort’ Mayweather dismissed it as a threat:

“Who’s Rich Franklin? There’s 8 year old kids just starting out in my gym who punch better than that guy. I’ve seen that guy try to punch and felt sorry for him, embarrassed for him – I think Roger [Mayweather] still has some spaces left in the beginners class, might want to get the basics down before he goes head to head with me. I mean come on, until he generates a revenue of 2.5 million he don’t even deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as Floyd Mayweather let alone be trying to compete with me. What you’re getting here is two of the best pound for pound fighters in the world going at it to determine who is number one, what they got there is two journeymen, bar room fighters who can’t tell a fish hook from a check hook.”

Mayweather was also asked to give his thoughts on how he feels the striking abilities of some of the premier strikers in MMA, such as Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovi?, might match up against the upper echelon heavyweight boxers.

“I think he forgot he has a right hand, give him a pair of 12 ounce gloves and Vlad Klitchko would tear up that ass in seconds. Look, I just watched an ex-UFC heavyweight champ, some overweight unathletic chump get one punched by an over the hill broken boxer, Mercer. Don’t get me wrong, I love Big Ray but his best days are behind him and he one punched an ex-champ, what more do I need to say? Just imagine what happens if a heavyweight contender lays hands on a MMA fighter. We both know wthat the aftermath will look like.”

While this will be the first time a major boxing event clashes with a UFC event, Mayweather insists that this will not be the first time he has beaten the UFC in terms of ratings.

“Look, I already went head on with the UFC in my fight against[Ricky] Hatton, we all know how that turned out and the same is gonna happen again on September 19th. I’m gonna give the people at home something to talk about the next day; everyone is going to be talking about the Floyd Mayweather fight that was on last night. Ain’t gonna be no one talking about those two guys who rolled around on the floor for 3 rounds. That’s why I was and still am the PPV king. ”

Mayweather even went as far to discredit MMA as a real sport calling it a ‘sideshow act’ and detailed the disparity in terms of pay between the two combat sports.

“The main difference between Boxing and MMA is the fact that boxing is a real sport and requires skill to reach the top. When you watch boxing you know you ain’t [going to] see some WWE clown walk in and take the belt after a couple fights. It ai’nt happening. That’s because it takes years to perfect and master the sweet science, MMA is nothing more than a sideshow act that probably won’t even be around in 10 years time. Boxing ain’t going anywhere, write that down. If so many people want to watch those guys fight then why isn’t Dana White paying them like it?"

The point is completely missed is that MMA Boxing HAS TO BE ADJUSTED FOR MMA. If you want to say MMA Boxing is not as good as real Boxing then it's a fucking moot point, Mayweather would have to adjust his Boxing just the same if he would have to worry about checking leg kicks or being taken to the ground. I'll bet the kicking in MMA would be much better if you didn't have to worry about takedowns either.

Floyd is dumb. You can be as perfect as you want with your hands as long as you don't have to worry about getting mualed in 10 other ways.

So Mayweather just watched a match that took place on a local show in Alabama and wasn't on PPV?

If Mayweather hates MMA so much why is he hunting down obscure fight clips on youtube?

floyd knows boxing... NOT fighting or mma.

rich is not the best striker out there but hell, he stood toe to toe with wand, hendo, silva...

just think what mike brown would do to PBF... he would hold him down and beat him like it was his little brother. But floyd would never take that fight unless it was under his rules.... his rules are hands only with big pillows covering them up.

Jack Skellington - PBF just keeps talking because he knows nothing can ever happen with him & MMA.

I prefer mma over boxing ANY day of the week, and I still enjoy boxing, but can't stand mawyweather.

having said that, your reasoning is pretty dumb.

even if he believed he could win wihtout ever being hit, why would a guy that can make 25 million in a prize fight, slum it with the pay scale of MMA orgs? it's so incredibly silly to even present, I can't believe anyone, for any reason, at any time, would think someone would be dumb enough to do that.

He's extremely good at boxing, and even better at hyping his fights. the puppets that start the PBF vs Anyone in MMA are the suckers he's looking for.

Man, I've had enough of Floyd Mayweather's big mouth. He is so stubborn and far too ignorant to realize that MMA is just too much for him. He won't step in the cage...why? He's threatened by MMA, just as Dana White so beautifully put it. Rich Franklin would rip Mayweather into pieces...who cares how he punches (though his striking isn't terrible)...Floyd would get taken down and get pounded on the ground.

But whatever, trash talk is trash talk. 5 years from now, when the UFC explodes in revenue, Floyd's fat mouth will be shut.

Have you ever heard of what MW's entourage is like. Something like 30+ deep. With all the cell phones, pda's, laptops, etc buzzing, I'm sure MW see's a lot of the stuff we do. C'mon, its not that big a deal really. He is a fighter you know, and that shit was all over yahoo/espn.

Floyd is good for MMA, giving it more exposure... Who cares who wins in PPV buys. The more he talks shit, the more MMA guys are going to get paid... It will expose how little Dana pays his fighters...Floyd is talking smack because he is slightly threatened. This could be good for boxing and MMA...
