Khabib Nurmagomedov is still sorting through the mess from his post-UFC 229 attack on Conor McGregor‘s team, but that’s not stopping him from thinking about the future. He recently called out Floyd Mayweather and wants to fight him — just like Conor McGregor did.
Nurmagomedov calls out Mayweather
Via MMAFighting.com, Nurmagomedov was recently ringside with Leonard Ellerbe, the CEO of Mayweather Promotions. With a camera rolling, Nurmagomedov, one arm draped around Ellerbe’s shoulders, called for a fight against Mayweather.
“Hey, let’s go, Floyd. We have to fight now. 50-0 vs. 27-0. Two guys never lose. Let’s go. Why not? Because in the jungle, only one king. Only one king. Of course, I am the king because he cannot drop McGregor but I drop him easily. Let’s go!”
