Very intresting, He is obviously a great athlete so i dont think it would take to long to get some sort of a ground game and take down defense. Hopefully if he has sucess he will eventually come to the ufc.

why do i have the feeling that if this does happen cuban will set him up with some can he can run through? that being said, i don't think any mma organization can offer any fighter $30 million for a fight, even though mark cuban is made of money.

I think it would be interesting to see it happen but don't think it will.

BTW what isn't Mark Cuban trying to get involved in.
Mayweather is so loaded that he could put Chuck Liddell, Randy Couture, Anderson Silva and Matt Hughes on his payroll for one year and still hold double digit millions after just two boxing matches...HOW COULD MMA AFFORD TO PAY HIM?

MMA pays peanuts relative to what the man earns...Mayweather in MMA is just not happening.

...unless, of course, Mayweather is venturing into MMA as a long term, profit-sharing partner with Mark Cuban.

I think everyone knows boxing is much more of a moneymaker than MMA at this time. But, with everyhtiing that has recently happened in terms of the feud between boxers and mixed martial artists, this could be the biggest thing in the fighting world since well, Mayweather vs. De La Hoya. Mayweather is the name that beats the names in boxing. He has the mouth of Tito and the ability of BJ. The guy is a boxing stud and would bring many of the boxing fans over in hopes to see him crush a mixed martial artist. Then of course, you know the MMA fans would be watchiing thinking he has no chance to beat a guy (that is good). I think Cuban knows that he will have to put him against someone that people know or like or has ability. Hopefully all 3. But, that being said this won't happen and if it does. Mayweather will be given a cakewalk or a tough guy. If he loses to the tough guy it is just an example of him being old, new to the sport, and out of his element. If he wins, well he disproves a lot of people's opinions about fighters and boxers. I couldn't imagine a more entertaining fight than Mayweather vs. Urijah Faber or Jens Pulver or BJ Penn or Roger Huerta or Frankie Edgar. He would have to fight a light weight or feather weight though.

BJ Penn Bandwagon...

Hope it is big enough for everyone. I have been a big fan of his for many years now. His talent and ability is almost unmatched. I have seen things from him in almost all of his fights that amazed me. If Sherk's fans can start a thread to appreciate him, then we, as Penn supporters need to unite to appreciate the one and only Baby Jay.

War Penn.

I've supported BJ since he KO'd Uno in their first bout. What amazes me most is how talented, and well-versed he can be in any given situation. His fight with GSP was awesome until he gassed out midway through the fight, however as evident, that has been BJ's biggest demon in MMA, next to taking a lazy approach in training. He showcased a near flawless performance against Joe Daddy, by picking his shots and eventually sinking in the RNC.

Not many guys in MMA are as complete as BJ, with exception to GSP, Anderson, and Kid.

Suizida tried to tell me that Jardine's Techno viking monkey style was too much for Vera's overhyped skills but i was to busy nuthugging to listen to 'the truth'

I agree, but BJ is probably more complete than Norifumi. I would love to see those guys fight...talk about exciting. BJ always amzes me with his fearlessness and confidence. Not many people nowadays going out and fighting 50 pounds above his natural weight.
