According to TalkSPORT, Sterling said:

“He [Mayweather] sent over his minions to try to pick her [Cruz] up. I was still undefeated at the time. So, he sent over a girl. No, I think he sent over a guy first. Told us like, ‘Yeah we both come down.

“I’m like, Man, I’m not stupid. We come over you guys will try to take her off, try to push me back and then I’m gonna feel some type of way. Like, ‘Nah, now I’ve gotta create a scene ‘cause you’re not about to punk me like that.”
“He left and came back with a girl and this girl’s like, ‘Really, he said you guys both can come down.'”

Sterling is of the opinion that Mayweather was not interested in him but in Cruz, and that he'd have been swatted aside if the boxer's invitation was accepted.

He continued:

“I was like, ‘Listen, I know how this scene, this movie goes. You can tell Floyd he’s undefeated in boxing. I’m undefeated in MMA. If we want to figure out what’s the better sport, we can find out today. I don’t think they actually went and told him that. I’m a big fan but you’re not about to have me looking stupid out here.”
