UFC champ, Tyron Woodley says he is set to train Boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather to fight in the MMA.

According to TMZ, Woodley claims he’s spoken with TBE and has agreed to get Mayweather ready for his UFC debut.

“Floyd Mayweather is interested in taking an MMA bout, maybe a few of ’em,” Woodley said during an appearance on TMZ’s  “The Hollywood Beatdown”. “So, who better than The Chosen One to teach him the ropes on how we get off the ropes and get in the cage!”

According to the media outlet, the athletes have been friends for quite some time and when they reunited in Los Angeles during NBA All-Star weekend, Woodley says the pair decided to work together in order to get Mayweather MMA-ready.
