Khabib Nurmagomedov challenges Floyd Mayweather to clash

Khabib Nurmagomedov challenges Floyd Mayweather to clash

Russian mixed martial arts fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov thanked Turkey on Monday after graffiti of him defeating Conor McGregor in a fight appeared on the streets of Istanbul.

Khabib threw down the gauntlet in a video addressing "Moneyman" alongside CEO of Mayweather Promotions Leonard Ellerbe and said: 'In the jungle there is only one king'.

"Hey, let's go, Floyd. A 50-0 against a 27-0, two guys who have never been beaten, why not?" he continued.

"In the jungle there is only one king and obviously that is me", saidNurmagomedov. "Only one king. Of course, I am the king because he can not drop McGregor, but I drop him easily".

Of course at this moment in time we're still doubting whether we will actually see the pair slug it out, but then again it was the same for the McGregor bout and we know what happened then.

Meanwhile, Bellator President Scott Coker did his best to distance himself from "50 Cent's" offer to Nurmagomedov.

Knicks waive Noah after just two seasons
When he became a free agent after the 2015-16 season, he chose to sign with his hometown Knicks, spurning other offers. Along with the injuries, he also beefed with then-head coach Jeff Hornacek, and was essentially exiled from the team.

The Irishman was also assaulted after the fight by Khabib's teammates, Zubaira Tukhugov and Islam Makhachev.

Khabib was dominant inside the Octagon, but has since made a shocking revelation about the affect the fight had on his health. "I can't tell 50 Cent what to say or not say, believe me". The Russian had his purse withheld by the Nevada Athletic Commission, which sanctioned the event, after leaping over the cage and attacking a member of McGregor's team. "Go to @leonardellerbe 's page to view Khabib Nurmagomedov challenging me". So I just feel like there has to be equal treatment all the way across the board.

"I understand promoting fights and having to sell them. If you still decide to fire him, don't forget to send me my broken contract, otherwise I'll break it myself". Because that would have been an excuse. The main thing was my psychological attitude.

In an ideal world, Kavanagh would like to see McGregor fight on March 16, one day before St. Patrick's Day.

"I'm not anxious that anyone can beat me, I worry only about what I can lose".
