Recently, after Floyd was unable to knock Paul down, The UFC CEO Dana White has made a statement “I would love to see Floyd retire” in an interview with the ATZ network.
It is to be mentioned that, even though Floyd was unable to knock Paul down he was always in a driver’s seat throughout the match. Having said that, Money and Maverick fought a spectacular fight with Logan Paul showing signs of a skilled boxer.
