Mayweather, who hasn't fought since he knocked out UFC fighter Conor McGregor in August 2017 in a highly publicized boxing match, then urged his followers to watch a recent video from Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe, in which Nurmagomedov spoke of fighting the boxer.
"Hey, let's go Floyd".
"50-0 v 27-0, two guys who never lose, why not?" [But] in the jungle there is only one king. Only one king. Of course I am the king because he could not drop McGregor and I dropped him easily.
Mayweather returned from a almost two-year retirement in August 2017 when he stopped McGregor on his feet in a fight that sold 4.4 million pay-per-views and netted him a reported $300 million.
Now that Khabib Nurmagomedov has called out Mayweather, the same kind of early response is fair to be expected. Let's go. Why not?
The undefeated Russian, Nurmagomedov (27-0 MMA), was able to frustrate the Irish superstar with his strong grappling skills before eventually submitting McGregor with a neck crank in round four. Let's go. Why not? McGregor also took some punches from members of Nurmagomedov's team.
"I'll pay 2 million cash tonight if he will fight for me at Bellator", adding that "I'll deal with Dana and your contract later".
Nurmagomedov would like to see a contest between two unbeaten fighters.
Floyd Mayweather earned millions from the McGregor fight and stretched his career to 50-0 in the process. Unfortunately for Nurmagomedov, he is awaiting punishment from the Nevada State Athletic Commission for his post-fight outburst which sparked a brawl outside of the cage.
Nevertheless, just how much do you know about The Notorious One? I think they should take ($250,000) from him.
