Floyd Mayweather takes shot at Khabib Nurmagomedov's behavior in UFC 229 melee

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 flawless time for the Dagestani grappler to cash in on his fame, but will it actually happen?

Asked by a TMZ if a fight with Nurmagomedov would take place, the 41-year-old replied: "Oh, we're fighting".

Now, Floyd has taken to Instagram to share a clip from a friend of The Money Team, 'ShabazzTheOG, ' about why the Russian fighter should face the boxer next.

"Who's the A-side? He called me out, so you have to come to my world", Mayweather said, adding that he expects a nine-figure deal should an agreement be reached.


In an interview with ESPN.com, White said he wants to see former interim champ Tony Ferguson - not McGregor - get the next shot at the title. "I know it's a different sport, but Khabib not Conor down".

"So, Khabib ... you got my leftovers".

Nevertheless, Pacquiao seems certain Mayweather will end the year with a fight, which will double as a warm-up for Mayweather versus Pacquiao II.

Nurmagomedov has yet to receive his $2 million disclosed purse from the NSAC for his last outing due to his involvement in the melee which marred UFC 229 two weeks ago and he is eager to fight anywhere else. Of course we know, Vegas is the fighting capital, and after the fight, you have to conduct yourself like a true professional, not just in the ring, but outside of the ring also.


"Conor was about to get attacked.I leaped over and saw the door open and I wanted to get in there and protect my countryman". It's more than the McGregor fight - probably 100 million dollars more.

Dagestani native Nurmagomedov initiated the talk by citing the pair's undefeated records in their respective codes, saying: "In the jungle, there's only one king". "It could be somewhere between $110 million to $200 million guaranteed".

"After me and Khabib lock up, me and McGregor we gonna lock up again".

"Khabib better not try to box him". Khabib is going to start wrestling in the boxing ring.
