Khabib Nurmagomedov is escorted out of the arena after defeating Conor McGregor in their UFC lightweight championship bout by way of submission during the UFC 229 event inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, on October 6, 2018.

In a viral video that was posted on Instagram by boxing manager DeJuan Blake, a cousin of Mayweather, the 30-year-old Nurmagomedov (27-0 in MMA) laughed with Ellerbe as he challenged the 41-year-old Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs in boxing) to a fight.

"50-0 v 27-0 - two guys who never lose". Because in the jungle there is only one king, only one king. Only one king. Of course I am the king because he could not drop McGregor and I dropped him easily.

McGregor made as much as a $100 million a year ago by taking on Mayweather in a lopsided boxing match.


On Monday, Mayweather responded while asking his benefactors to break open the checkbook if they want to make the fight against Nurmagomedov a reality. Let's go, why not.

And we have every right to hope his fights remain in the Octagon. Let's go. Why not?

"I am ready to fight".

Nurmagomedov and McGregor have both been temporarily suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission pending a full investigation into the scenes that marred the end of their fight in Las Vegas.


Mayweather's last outing was a lucrative boxing match against McGregor, so could Nurmagomedov be next in line?

The two men then chummed it up for the camera as Nurmagomedov directed a message at Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Here we go again. This is after the melee at UFC 229 that involved Nurmagomedov, Conor McGregor and their respective teams.

Scott Coker on not being able to control what 50 Cent says: "I think what he means by that is like him as a manager".


Nurmagomedov replied to the Instagram post directly and told 50: "Just send me location", before the In Da Club singer offered to "send a plane for you in the morning".
