Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s transition to MMA is one step closer to becoming a reality.
Mayweather told TMZ he is planning to apply for a license that will allow him to compete in mixed martial arts, with the goal of making his UFC debut some point in the near future.
"Everything takes time. Eventually, we're gonna apply for the license, and hopefully we can fight," Mayweather said.
Mayweather added the process could take six to eight months for him to be ready for his debut. He's planning to train with UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley.
