Floyd Mayweather told us he ‘ s dead serious about fighting in the UFC . . . and now , he says he ‘ s taking the most important step to make sure that happens – – getting a license .
We got Floyd in L . A . earlier this week . . . and he told TMZ Sports he ‘ s planning to submit the paperwork to get licensed as a pro MMA fighter . We ‘ re guessing he ‘ s eyeing Nevada .
” Everything takes time . Eventually , we ‘ re gonna apply for the license , and hopefully we can fight , ” Mayweather said.
No word on when exactly Floyd ‘ s applying – – or beginning his MMA training with UFC champ Tyron Woodley - – but TBE did give us an estimate on how long he ‘ ll need to get Octagon ready .
” Even if it takes 6 to 8 months – – whatever it takes. We want to make sure that everything is done correctly . “
