We don’t know what to make of this, but Floyd Mayweather is saying that he’s going to begin training for a transition to MMA “soon”.

The boxing legend recently chatted with TMZ cameras in Los Angeles, and said he’s dead serious about getting into mixed martial arts.

Apparently, Mayweather is going to be working with UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley.

“I’m gonna start soon,” he said. “We’ve been texting back and forth. We talked a couple times, so we gonna start working out real soon.”

From there, Mayweather graded his MMA skills, breaking it down from wrestling and striking to kicking.

“I can wrestle. My wrestling game is not that bad,” Mayweather said. “On a scale from 1 to 10, it’s probably a 7. And I think we can take it up to a 9 if possible. Of course, my hand game, on a scale of 1 to 10, is 100. My kicking game, on a scale from 1 to 10, is probably a 4.”

It’s still unclear when this will happen, but if there’s money involved, Mayweather might just do it.
