Could Floyd Mayweather actually fight under the UFC umbrella?

According to UFC president Dana White, it’s a possibility.

While I would watch it to see him lose, it's another step in the wrong direction for MMA and making it again more of a sideshow.

Does Barry Bonds get to start for the NY Giants because of who he is in another sport? no...because that's absurd, he'd get killed, and delegitimizes those other professionals and makes the sport look like a joke...and not even a sport, an entertaining spectacle

He'd probably lose every fight, so who cares if he embarrasses himself?

Remember the James Tony fight? And that was against an aging Couture. McGregor and hte new generation are on a different level than Couture. And Tony had serious KO power...Mayweather doesn't
