Dana White Insists Khabib Nurmagomedov is Not Leaving the UFC

Dana White Responds to Khabib Nurmagomedov Threatening to Leave the UFC

Watch: Floyd Mayweather Confirms He Is Definitely Boxing Khabib

While the 41-year-old Mayweather is willing to accept the challenge, he made sure to lay out a few ground rules for the fight.

Khabib Nurmagomedov has challenged Floyd Mayweather Jr.to a fight and the retired boxing star says he wants the bout.

"Oh, we fighting!" Mayweather said.

But, if it doesn't happen, Canelo tells us he's down for a 3rd fight with Gennady Golovkin - and in the meantime, he's prepping for his December 15 fight against Rocky Fielding at Madison Square Garden. He knocked out England's very own Ricky Hatton in devastating fashion but I don't see it. "I can't say what's going on on Khabib's end, but on my end we can make it happen".

When asked if the potential bout with the also undefeated Nurmagomedov would be a boxing or mixed martial arts contest, Mayweather was candid with his response. "So, he gotta come to my world", Mayweather, told TMZ Sports. Mayweather also stated that this fight won't take place under the UFC banner, but rather in a boxing ring.

"When I face Khabib, I'm getting a nine-figure payday".

The likelihood of this completely hypothetical and fantastical matchup happening is slim to none...but we kind of felt that way with Mayweather vs Conor McGregor didn't we? Probably $US100m more, guaranteed. "It could be somewhere upwards of $110 to $200 million guaranteed".

In particular, the condition can cause weakness in the arms and legs along with loss of muscle tone and problems with reflexes. The mysterious increase in cases of AFM, as it's called, was first spotted in the late summer and autumn of 2014.

Nurmagomedov is facing possible disciplinary action in Nevada following the stormy end to his victory over McGregor.

I can't think of a better man, a fighter right now who has a better legacy than Khabib in terms of popularity and legacy.

If that situation gets resolved, it will be up to Nurmagomedov to decide whether he wants to meet Mayweather's demands.

TMZ caught up with Floyd in LA and he weighed in on a number of topics surrounding Khabib.

Floyd Mayweather lands a punch on Conor McGregor during their 2017 fight in Las Vegas.

But UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier, who is a teammate of Nurmagomedov, declared the match-up a joke.

"If you decide to fire him, you should know that you'll lose me too", Khabib declared. He's not a boxer, and one-punch knockout power isn't a direct translation from the UFC to a boxing ring.
