The Money Team. Or, if you’re into that whole brevity thing, TMT.

Whichever you decide, the folks that make up The Money Team or TMT are the people that surround retired boxer Floyd Mayweather. Some of those individuals are fighters that Mayweather represents, mainly as their promoter.

Mayweather has made it clear in the past that he wants to expand into mixed martial arts, and one man he has set his eyes on is current interim UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones.

"Jon Jones, 'll be to see you in a couple weeks in Albuquerque, New Mexico in training camp. You know I stand behind you, Jon Jones," Mayweather recently told TMZ. "When you went through a little roller coaster ride, everybody turned their back on you — we're still here for you."

When pushed further on the subject, Mayweather said “of course” he thought Jones would join The Money Team.

From all appearances, it looks like talks may already be happening between Mayweather and Jones.

Jones is currently readying himself to face current UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier in a title unification fight on July 9 at UFC 200.

He earned the interim title at UFC 197 in April when he defeated Ovince Saint Preux, who was a late replacement after Cormier withdrew from the event due to a leg injury.

Cormier and Jones have fought once before. That fight, the main event of UFC 182, ended with Jones taking a unanimous decision victory.
