The fight world is still hot from the heat of the recently concluded UFC 229 where Khabib choked Conor in the 4th round. As we all know, it was followed by a drama where the Russian scaled the ring and attacked McGregor’s teammate Dillon Danis. The aftermath of the incident saw Khabib’s prize money being held off by Nevada State Athletic Commission.

UFC is supposedly on the move to ban Khabib’s brother Zubaira Tukhugov. Khabib posted an Instagram update in retaliation. Check it out below.

He took a stand for his brother Zubaira and is threatening UFC that he would end his contract. Amidst all the chaos, Nurmagomedov found what exactly he was looking for. A meeting with Leonard Ellerbe, a boxing promoter. In a video posted by Ellerbe on his Instagram, the Russian can be seen challenging Floyd for a boxing match. He says, “50-0 versus 27-0. Two guys who have never lost. But in the jungle, there is only one king and I’m the king.”

Mayweather has responded to Khabib calling him out. He said, “CBS, Showtime and MGM Grand get the checkbook out!”

Nurmagomedov is following the footsteps of his rival Conor who too had challenged Floyd for a boxing match. However, the Irishman tasted defeat at the hands of the American.

While everybody was hoping for a rematch between Khabib and Conor, the Russian has surprised the fight fans by challenging Money Mayweather.

However, as for now, Floyd Mayweather is busy preparing himself for a rematch against Manny Pacquiao which is set to take place before New Year’s Eve.
