    Is there a better story teller than Floyd Mayweather? During his recent media tour, he visited the offices of USA Today and was asked about mixed martial arts cutting into the boxing fanbase. The legendary pugilist responded by telling a story that suggested he pointed UFC president Dana White in the right direction.

    "My uncle Jeff Mayweather is the one who started Dana White off," said Floyd Mayweather. "I first met Dana White in 1996. He was a boxing aerobics trainer but he didn't know nothing about boxing. My uncle Jeff taught him about contact sports."

    Mayweather said he introduced White to a woman with deep pockets and the rest is history. All this time we thought White put this together because he went to high school in Las Vegas with Lorenzo Fertitta. That sets the record straight.

    Before Mayweather claimed that MMA was created because white people couldn't box.

    The man is a joke when it comes to anything outside the ring.
