Mayweather says Nurmagomedov fight will happen

Khabib Nurmagomedov

The Russia earned $2m from his fight with McGregor but could tens of millions for a showdown with Mayweather.

"Oh, we fighting!" Mayweather said.

"Who's the 'A-side?' He called me out so you have to come to my world", Mayweather said.

"I'm my own boss, so I can't say what's going on on Khabib's end, but on my end we can make it happen".

"When I face Khabib, I'm getting a nine-figure payday".

The whole Mayweather-Khabib thing does seem very daft but that was also the case with all the McGregor stuff a year ago and we know how that turned out.

Rumours of a fight between Nurmagomedov and Mayweather started on Sunday. "Probably a hundred million dollars more, guaranteed". Mayweather insisted Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2018, that he planned to fight mixed martial arts star Khabib Nurmagomedov following the Russian's victory over McGregor. It also has been reported that Mayweather would come out of retirement and fight in the UFC in a rematch with McGregor.

The Russian fighter jumped into the crowd immediately after the win to trade blows with members of McGregor's entourage while other members of Nurmagomedov's support leapt into the octagon at T-Mobile Arena to attack the beaten Irish fighter.

It didn't stop stars from across the sport from calling him out though, most notably Khabib Nurmagomedov, who wanted GSP as his first title defence after claiming the Lightweight gold at UFC 223 in Brooklyn.

Nurmagomedov had called out Mayweather days after the McGregor fight, saying: "Hey, let's go, Floyd".

White stopped short of confirming whether or not Tukhugov will remain on the UFC roster, although he's already been pulled from his upcoming fight on October 27 against Artem Lobov at the UFC Fight Night card in Canada. Bovada opened their lines with Mayweather as a -2000 favorite to win and Nurmagomedov at +900. Let's go. Why not? The same was true of Mayweather's fight with McGregor which, despite the UFC hype man landing a few blows, was never much of a contest.

Nurmagomedov told Mayweather "in the jungle there is only one king" in requesting a bout.
