"My soundings are that there are a lot of talks going on in the background", he told Talksport's Jim White.
The Money may have officially retired when he beat Conor McGregor in 10 rounds back in August, but there's little chance that speculation of a rematch is going to die down.
The two met inside a boxing ring in August 2017, with Mayweather extending his ideal record to 50-0 via a stoppage in the 10th round.
Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather could be set for a multi-million dollar rematch, only this time under the discipline of mixed martial arts.
"If I chose to get in the UFC and fight three fights or fight four fights and then fight Conor McGregor, I could make a billion dollars", Mayweather said. Obviously the only way making that fight again makes any sense is if he comes into the Octagon.
"We went over and boxed him, the UFC and Conor McGregor, and now it's time for him to reciprocate and come fight in the Octagon".
Conor McGregor is facing legal trademarking issues with major cosmetic brand MAC.
The Notorious hasn't fought in the UFC since 2016, when he won the lightweight title off Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205.
He tried to file this name for trademark shortly after his fight with Floyd Mayweather. 'McGregor in an MMA fight will f****** destroy Mayweather like he's never seen'.
"I never said I was gonna fight in the UFC", the boxer told website FightHype.com in December a year ago.
Davies disagrees, however, citing the enormous payday potentially on offer. There's no doubt that money is still left on the table if these two wanted to throw down again, but perhaps that potential is maximized in an MMA bout.
