Floyd Mayweather has insisted that if he returned from retirement he could make a billion dollars in a three or four fight deal in the UFC.

Mayweather defeated Conor McGregor in a superfight between the pair in August and in doing so earned a $100 million purse. Since then Mayweather has remained retired but took to social media to hint a return.

"They just called me not too long ago and ask me to come back," said Mayweather. "I can come right back. If I wanted to I could come right back to the UFC. I can go fight in the Octagon. I can go do a three or four-fight deal in the Octagon and make a billion dollars. Remember I'm Floyd Money Mayweather."

The American, who last week stated that he carried McGregor in their bout and made it look good, added that he is the greatest athlete of all time.

"There is only one ------------- goat and it's me. I better not hear nobody talking about this guy the goat over here, this guy the goat over here. At the end of the day I'm the best athlete ever. You heard me. Ain't nobody do it better than me.

"I done it in the best style, I done it flashy, done it flamboyant, I done it my way, I kept 100 percent of the revenue and I'm my own ------------ boss.
