‘Oh, we fighting’: Mayweather ‘looking at 9-figure payday’ for Khabib bout

Floyd Mayweather responds to call-out from Khabib Nurmagomedov as possible super-fight looms Dana White Responds to Khabib Nurmagomedov Threatening to Leave the UFC

Boxer Floyd Mayweather has told UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov to "come into my world" and make a bout happen that he believes will earn him more than his fight with Conor McGregor.

Mayweather was recently called out by reigning UFC lightweight Khabib Nurmagomedov on the heels of the UFC champ's title-retaining victory over Conor McGregor at UFC 229, and Mayweather seems more than prepared to step into the boxing ring to face the undefeated Russian UFC champion.

Nurmagomedov has to take on Mayweather in the boxing ring, and it has to be in Las Vegas.

"Oh, we fighting. He called me out".

"Who's the 'A-side?' He called me out, so you have to come to my world", Mayweather said, adding that he expects a nine-figure payout should an agreement be reached. "I can't say what's going on on Khabib's end, but on my end we can make it happen", Mayweather said.

So, I can't say what's going on on Khabib's end.

Rodgers figured out the Niners in the end. "He's called great games, and he continues to call great games", Sherman said of Saleh. Despite that, Rodgers is still completing 63% of his passes with 10 touchdown and only one interception.

"Of course we know Vegas is the fighting capital, and after the fight you have to conduct yourself like a true professional", said Mayweather. Probably $100m more, guaranteed.

If that situation gets resolved, it will be up to Nurmagomedov to decide whether he wants to meet Mayweather's demands. A couple of Nurmagomedov's teammates spilled into the Octagon with one of them (later identified as Zubaira Tukhugov) attacking McGregor from behind. Tukhugov was on the UFC roster at the time and scheduled to next fight McGregor teammate Artem Lobov.

"Let's go Floyd", said Khabib with a smile. We are two guys who never lose. Let's go. Why not? Of course, I am the king because he can not drop McGregor but I drop him easily.

Former multi-weight champion Mayweather was unable to knock McGregor down, which Nurmagomedov did over the course of the 6 October bout at the T-Mobile Arena before forcing his bitter rival to tap out.

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.
