Floyd Mayweather tells UFC's Khabib Nurmagomedov 'come into my world'

Khabib Nurmagomedov

"Let's go Floyd. We have to fight now: 50-0 versus 27-0".

The Cowboys owner had UFC superstar Conor McGregor on hand for his team's 40-7 trouncing of the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. He won the fight via fourth-round submission, and then exited the Octagon to confront McGregor's corner.

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

In comments to the TMZ Sports website, Mayweather was adamant that a fight with Nurmagomedov was "happening" provided it took place in the boxing ring.

Nurmagomedov, 30, extended his unbeaten mixed martial arts record to 27-0 with his 6 October victory against McGregor, but former five-weight world champion Mayweather (50-0) says any bout between the two will happen in the boxing ring. "We're fighting", Mayweather said.

Nurmagomedov, fresh off his defeat of Conor McGregor and attack on McGregor's trainer, has been critical of the UFC's handling of the entire mess, and now seems like the ideal time for the Dagestani grappler to cash in on his fame, but will it actually happen?

Rain Saves Svitolina in Hong Kong QFs, Luksika Out
Top-seeded Ukrainian Elina Svitolina is close to bowing out of the Hong Kong Open but rain has disrupted her quarter-final match. Even if she ends up losing the quarter-final to Wang, she could still possibly land a berth in the WTA Finals.

If that situation gets resolved, it will be up to Nurmagomedov to decide whether he wants to meet Mayweather's demands. But you don't have to win to get paid and let's be honest, that's what this is all about in the end.

"If you look at the real fighters, not only as to who sells the most, but in terms of who's the real pound-for-pound fighter, I think he ranks right up there". "I can't say what's going on on Khabib's end, but on my end we can make it happen", Mayweather said.

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. Probably $US100m more, guaranteed.

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

His reign didn't last for long though, and a month later GSP made a decision to vacate the title due to suffering from Ulcerative colitis, stating he "didn't want to hold up the division". Of course, I am the king because he can not drop McGregor but I drop him easily. I don't know any fighters that have made the money I have made.
