UFC President Dana White was a guest on the late night Aresenio Hall show and when Hall asked him how the best boxer in the world would do in the UFC, he was quite matter of fact:

He'd get murdered. He'd get murdered in the UFC. Here's the thing: These guys always talk about this crossover stuff -- and Floyd's going to go crazy because I said that, too now -- but the bottom line is the disrespect these guys show for each other's sports.

My guys thinking they could go over and box and Floyd thinking he could come over here in the UFC. It's like, you go to a knife fight with a guy and the other guy has got guns and chains and crowbars. There's so many more weapons in the UFC than there are in boxing, so it makes no sense.

The majority of boxers and MMAers that I've seen interviewed in recent years HAVE shown respect for the other sport.

I can't fucking believe Arsenio in 2014 is still asking such a stupid question. That exact question was being asked in 1997.

Floyd's purse for one fight murders your entire rosters' yearly payroll, Dana.

Murdered?

That's the UFC buy rates if Mayweather goes against them the week before or after a UFC PPV.

I don't think it's wise to potentially inspire Mayweather to want to fight near a major UFC PPV date like Memorial Day , July 4 or Super Bowl weekend.

Dana already will move the UFC if the NFL switches Super Bowl to Saturday because he knows it would kill him.

Having a mega Mayweather fight on PPV the week before a UFC event kills him.

Because if the choice is to pay 75 bucks to see Mayweather it means a lot of guys decide to not spend 60 to see UFC.

Dana really needs to build stars in the UFC and stop being the only face most people recognize. Phone Post 3.0

This statement shouldn't even be controversial. A pure anything (pure boxer, pure wrestler, pure judoka, etc) would most likely get murdered in the UFC. But ESPECIALLY a boxer with zero grappling. Of course, he'd have a puncher's chance. But most likely he'd get immediately and easily taken down and pounded out or submitted in seconds.

Now having said that, a boxer of his caliber who made a legit transition to training and fighting MMA would do awesome, of course.

Mayweather is a point fighter with no ko power unless he is sucker punching you. He is good at dancing around and countering. There are to many ways for him to lose, clinch, kicks, GNP or submission and he would only have a punchers chance. 

Mayweather stands no chance in the ufc.

Obviously Mayweather would get destroyed if he fought an elite mixed martial artist in MMA. But get the fuck out of here with that other stuff. Mayweather isn't a point fighter, he's a smart fighter. Do you even understand boxing?

Mayweather is the best counter puncher of all time! He goes up BIG on the scorecards, and then when you chase him, that's when the KO is available. It's not his fault that fighters like Canelo, Moseley, and JMM conceded defeat instead of chasing the KO and risking their conciseness.

I do understand boxing and fighters like Mayweather are killing the sport. You put him in a real fight and he gets destroyed. Wouldn't take an elite either. He is good at running away and throwing punches at 40%. 

He wouldn't be able to do that in MMA or a real fight. He would get clinched and kneed to death, or rag dolled and GNP, or taped the fuck out. 

Great defensive fighter but that wouldn't cut it in a real fight or MMA fight. 

He is boring as fuck for all the shit he talks. There is no HOLY SHIT moment in his fights. Not very exciting at all.
