Mayweather Responds To Challenge From UFC Champion Khabib - Russian Jabs Vegas

Khabib Nurmagomedov

Khabib Nurmagomedov

Boxer Floyd Mayweather could be open to a bout with Khabib Nurmagomedov after responding to the UFC fighter's challenge by saying: "Get the chequebook out!"

Khabib was alongside Mayweather's friend and CEO of his promotional company Leonard Ellerbe of Mayweather Promotions at the time where he said there can only be one king.

This response today probably won't look too well for him in Bob and the guys' investigation in Vegas. "Let's go", boasted Nurmagomedov, whose win over McGregor was eclipsed by ugly scenes that emerged after the fight.

Mayweather famously defeated McGregor in August 2017 via 10th-round TKO in their much-hyped boxing superfight, from which Mayweather earned $220 million and McGregor netted $100 million.

While Nurmagomedov has a flawless 27-0 record in UFC, Mayweather improved his own record to 50-0 in the ring when he defeated McGregor past year.

Mayweather heeded the call in a social media post on Monday, telling broadcasters to "get the checkbooks out", adding: "Let's make Las Vegas great again". "That's why, let's go", he said in the video. After submitting McGregor at UFC 229, Nurmagomedov would jump into the audience.

While McGregor started that fight strong, Mayweather dominated late as experience kicked in.

It wasn't immediately clear if the potential fight would actually take place - or if it would occur in a boxing ring or the mixed martial arts octagon.

"Of course I am the king because he could not drop McGregor and I dropped him easily", added Nurmagomedov, who retained his UFC lightweight title against McGregor.

A number of Nurmagomedov's team also entered the Octagon and threw punches at McGregor. It would certainly be interesting, and Khabib has some appeal with an undefeated record and the recent hype after steamrolling McGregor on October 6 in Las Vegas.
