Floyd Mayweather appears to have accepted the challenge posed to him by UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

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.
