Judging by White's recent interview with ESPN (via MMA Mania), Mayweather is now likely to compete in the Ultimate Fighting Championship at some point in 2020.

“Some things have to play out and then I’m going to start talking to (Al) Haymon maybe this summer and then I’ll have something for Floyd in the fall. The money is in Floyd competing."
When can we expect Mayweather Jr. to fight in the UFC?
As mentioned by White, Mayweather could possibly fight in the UFC this fall. However, it remains to be seen who he will compete against. A rematch against the returning Conor McGregor, this time in MMA circumstances could be a possibility.
