Floyd Mayweather v Khabib Nurmagomedov fight 'should happen in UFC'

Floyd Mayweather v Khabib Nurmagomedov fight 'should happen in UFC'”

And if you believe the five-weight boxing world champion Mayweather, now aged 41, there will be another fight involving himself and a UFC fighter.

Just last week Nurmagomedov and McGregor were both issued stark ultimatums that could tank their careers - the NSAC said failure to show up at the December meeting will mean they will never be allowed to fight in Las Vegas again.

Floyd Mayweather and Khabib Nurmagomedov have made it clear they want to fight one another, but according to UFC President Dana White, the only way it happens is in the Octagon.

American boxer Mayweather announced earlier that he was ready to square off with Nurmagomedov for a bout, but under the boxing regulations.

However, after watching Conor McGregor lose to Mayweather after swapping MMA for boxing, White insists Khabib will only face the undefeated American if he agrees to take part in his first ever UFC fight.

Mayweather maintains an unblemished record of 50 wins in all of his professional fights, including 27 wins by KOs.

"Listen, if Mayweather wants to fight, come fight", TMZ quoted UFC President White as saying.

The UFC fight between the Russian and the Irish was held on October 6.

Nurmagomedov is now serving a ban issued by the Nevada State Athletic Commission as it investigates the brawl that followed his aforementioned world title win in Los Angeles.

"There's a reason Floyd Mayweather wants to fight my guys, there's big money in there for him". As Dana White said on Tuesday, Tony Ferguson makes the most sense as Khabib's next opponent.

White, however, was adamant that a crossover fight between Mayweather and Nurmagomedov must happen inside a UFC cage.

"Tony Ferguson is the right fight", he added. "After the fight I showed him that what he did before the fight would not be unrequited".
