"But Showtime and CBS has to be involved if I do a multi-fight MMA deal".

Floyd Mayweather Jr. took time Saturday night to offer some advice to Conor McGregor in the wake of his arrest for attacking a bus in the bowels of Barclays Center on Thursday.

"Retirement has been great but as everybody knows, I go into retirement and I come back, I go into retirement and I come back", Mayweather told Showtime.

So it sounds like Mayweather isn't interested in waiting around for McGregor.

"I spoke with my team, I spoke with Al Haymon". Both fighters walked away with record-setting paydays after Mayweather defeated the debut boxer via a tenth round TKO. UFC President Dana White wrote off Showtime as a partner after executive Stephen Espinoza publicly contradicted his declaration that Mayweather vs. McGregor was the biggest pay-per-view event in history.

A highly lucrative and long-speculated rematch looms with McGregor, who's said Mayweather promised him a rematch in the octagon after a shellacking in boxing.

"But as you know and everybody know, I go in retirement, I come back". "Outside the ring, you have to carry yourself as a gentleman". He added it would have to be for the right amount of money and at the 145 pound division in UFC.

"Is it possible that I come back?"

"Only if the money is right".

"You got to talk to Showtime (and) CBS", he said. "Of course, the numbers gonna be insane". The brash Irish fighter was silenced when Mayweather picked him apart in an eventual 10th-round stoppage.

"I can do whatever I want, when I want to, and how I want to", he said.

Before they began discussing upcoming fights Mayweather's company will promote, Gray asked Mayweather once again if he'll box for the 51st time as a professional.
