    Over the past decade, every single UFC superstar has called out Floyd Mayweather for a fight. At one point, almost half of the UFC roster including UFC president Dana White we’re in the media constantly talking about Floyd and how they could beat him. Even Ronda Rousey used the biggest moments of her career to call out Floyd. But when Conor McGregor called, Floyd answered and knocked him out at 40 years old and 6 years past his prime.

    "In MMA", taken with a grain of salt since he doesn't compete in MMA but he is the biggest name in combat sports.

    Other than his initial ignorance, he seemed to show some sort of compassion about not wanting to injure Conor too badly.

    MMA is a fringe sport so most people in proper sports are bigger names in MMA than MMA fighters.
    MMA fighters should start challenging footballers like Ronaldo or Messi if they want publicity.

    Conor vs Ronaldo in the Bernabeu next then.

    Does anybody doubt that if this guy took an MMA fight it would be one of the biggest pay per views ever?
    Floyd, Bieber, the Rock. I honestly think any of these people could take an MMA fight and break records.

    Struggling to think of a fair MMA matchup for Floyd. Would have to be someone who doesn't grapple or use takedowns, like a Mike Perry sort. At 145, let's see....Doo Ho Choi?

    Does that mean Bieber is the biggest name in boxing/MMA? Or whats your point?

    I think Trump would outsell Bieber and everyone else in boxing or in MMA. That must mean Trump is the biggest name in combat sports.
