Get the chequebook out! - Mayweather talks up potential Khabib clash

SPUTNIK  Sputnik

Nurmagomedov (27-0) is coming off his own victory over McGregor (21-4) after beating him in a fourth-round submission on October 6.

Whether it be inside the Octagon or elsewhere, it certainly seems like Khabib is planning for the future, with the man himself hinting at the idea of a boxing match against Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Granted, Khabib Nurmagomedov doesn't have the kind of crossover drawing power that McGregor does but the undefeated Russian has definitely become more of a mainstream name after dominating "The Notorious" at UFC 229.

Maybe we shouldn't be so quick to write off the likelihood of another UFC lightweight champion crossing codes to box Mayweather.

"CBS, Showtime and MGM Grand get the checkbook out!".

After threatening to quit the company, Nurmagomedov has received offers from the WWE and a $2 million pay cheque from 50 Cent to fight in Bellator. But that hasn't stopped him from eyeing his next opponent.

This shot comes from recent events in Vegas after Khabib beat McGregor and a post-fight brawl proceeded to take place - causing Khabib's purse to be withheld pending investigation by the NSAC.

"The Eagle" bumped into Leonard Ellerbe over the weekend and it was then that Nurmagomedov revealed his desire to test his striking against the greatest defensive boxer of all time.

"We have to fight now", Nurmagomedov said.

"In the jungle, there is only one king".

While McGregor started that fight strong, Mayweather dominated late as experience kicked in. "50-0 vs 27-0. Two guys, never lose", Nurmagomedov says in the video. "Because he could not drop McGregor but I dropped him easily". It would certainly be interesting, and Khabib has some appeal with an undefeated record and the recent hype after steamrolling McGregor on October 6 in Las Vegas.
