Mayweather Responds To Challenge From UFC Champion Khabib - Russian Jabs Vegas

Mayweather Responds To Challenge From UFC Champion Khabib - Russian Jabs Vegas

Jackson recently made a lucrative proposal to UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov on social media. Not only was he dominant in a victory over McGregor that has been rumored to have moved more than 2 million PPV buys (a new MMA record), he triggered an ugly postfight melee by jumping over the cage wall and attacking members of McGregor's corner. "I think it's wrong what the UFC is doing to Khabib".

Dana White, the UFC president, said in the aftermath of the brawl that Tukhugov would never fight in UFC again.

'The UFC is not the only game in town, ' wrote 50 on Instagram, before the unofficial Bellator spokesman added that Tukhugov would also be welcome to transfer.

Nurmagomedov isn't likely to jump to Bellator, where 50 Cent is a brand ambassador, but he did respond to the rapper's offer.

Nurmagomedov replied to Jackson, inviting him to Russian Federation, and the American has now himself responded.

It's clear that Nurmagomedov doesn't want a fight in Vegas after the incident, as a potential match-up with Mayweather is being touted.

Plus, and this can't be stated enough, McGregor's striking is still far better than Khabib's.

A hearing is slated for October 24.

While it's unclear just how serious Nurmagomedov was in the Instagram video, his name is now red-hot for both good and bad reasons. "Just disappear. Get me, Conor, Artem [Lobov], Peter [Queally], and that kind of crew, and just disappear for three months".

Last weekend, Nurmagomedov retained his UFC lightweight crown, beating McGregor by fourth-round submission.

Nurmagomedov goes on to explain the decision by saying: "They won't pay my money".

"Conor watched [the Khabib fight] right away, I hadn't seen the fight since", Kavanagh told ESPN's Ariel Helwani (via MMA Mania). We never give up on our brothers in Russian Federation and I will go to the end for my brother.
