According to MSN, the UFC is targeting world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (20-0) and reportedly may be offering him multi-fight deal worth a whopping $500 million dollars. Joshua expressed interest in facing the UFC's Francis Ngannou and Jon Jones. UFC president Dana White will be ringside when Joshua faces Joseph Parker (24-0) on March 31st to defend his WBA, IBF, and IBO heavyweight titles.
According to MMA Junkie, Joshua stated, "I'm a boxer. I'm not into the UFC, so I don't know what their plans are. But anytime I've been asked about the UFC, it's if I would make the crossover like McGregor did with Mayweather". Joshua further stated that he and his management team are definitely open to discussing a potential move into the UFC, especially if good money and good fights can be made.
