First off, this information is coming from a very creditable source that wished not to have his identity exposed. So, from this point forward, we will call him “Bob”.
I’ve known Bob for about 7-8 years and with his Proximity to Floyd, job title and supplied pictures, I trust what was told to me is very accurate. Yesterday (1/30), Floyd posted a teaser video of him entering the MMA cage at Syndicate MMA located in Las Vegas. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what he was trying to imply. So, I contacted Bob. My exact words to him were “Ill believe it when I see it” Bob then tells me to believe it and that Floyd would be dropping a promo soon (today 1/31). So after a very exciting convo with Bob, here’s what I know.
First, Bob told me in shock “he rented Syndicate from 930-1030 for **** dollars to do a 20 second promo on a cell phone”. Would you expect anything less from TMT? He also said that the teaser video of him stepping into the cage was literally the first time he’s ever been in one. As of right now, Floyd is planning on renting the Xtreme Couture and Syndicate MMA facilities after hours for his training. Bob doesn’t know who his coaches will be. Then he told me something that got me excited…. You ready… Bob said “He could wrestle a tiny bit”.. “He was like I just need to sprawl and he sprawled decent”.
So, I then asked the next logical question I could ask. I asked Bob who he thought his opponent would be. Without hesitation he sent a Instagram link. The link was the notorious Connor McGregor holding his son with a caption “Fuck the Mayweathers”. That being speculation of course but that wouldn’t be a far stretch of the imagination. I mean what’s better than fighting for 100 million dollars? Doing it a 2nd time.
So what do you think? Do you think Floyd is serious? Who will his opponent be? Will he do any Gi work? Make sure to subscribe to our blog for more updates on this story as we get them.
