Khabib Nurmagomedov

UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov appears to be looking for challengers outside the Octagon.

Nurmagomedov's challenge came in a video posted on Instagram by Mayweather's promoter Leonard Ellerbe who indicated he ran into the UFC fighter at a fight card in Russian Federation.

Well, according to the video below, he'd like a shot at Floyd Mayweather... because when you want to make a ton of money in the fight game that's what you do.

This response today probably won't look too well for him in Bob and the guys' investigation in Vegas.

The sport of mixed martial arts is in a really weird place right now and that's something we'll expand on at a later date, but when push comes to shove, we really think this would be a bad idea.


Just moments after his win, Nurmagomedov jumped the cage to attack McGregor's coach, Dillion Danis.

Obviously, Mayweather walked way with a reported payday near $300 million for his 10th round TKO against McGregor last August. [But] in the jungle there is only one king.

Mayweather, who has not fought since the McGregor bout, has said he will come out of retirement to fight Manny Pacquiao in a rematch later this year.

"We have to fight now", Nurmagomedov said. "Of course I am the king, because he can not drop (Conor) McGregor, but I dropped him easily".

While Nurmagomedov has a ideal 27-0 record in UFC, Mayweather improved his own record to 50-0 in the ring when he defeated McGregor past year. Let's go. Why not?


"CBS, Showtime and MGM Grand get the checkbook out!".

"Let's make Las Vegas great again!".

Mayweather took to social media to respond to the challenge.

Meanwhile, the next fight of Nurmagomedov's teammate, Zubaira Tukhugov, reportedly was canceled following his role in the brawl that ensued after the Nurmagomedov-McGregor fight.

While it's unclear just how serious Nurmagomedov was in the Instagram video, his name is now red-hot for both good and bad reasons. Fighting the first man to do that could be very attractive to Mayweather.
