Khabib Nurmagomedov wants to face Floyd Mayweather in a fight. Nurmagomedov called out Mayweather at an event in Russia over the weekend, according to ESPN. The UFC fighter was next to Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe when he made the challenge.

“Let’s go, Floyd, we have to fight now,” Nurmagomedov said. “50-0 vs. 27-0, two guys who never lose. Let’s go, why not? Because in the jungle, there’s only one king. Of course I’m the king because he cannot drop McGregor, but I drop him easily. Let’s go.”

Mayweather, of course, previously fought Nurmagomedov’s most recent oppponent, Conor McGregor, in a boxing match in August of 2017. Mayweather won the fight by tenth-round TKO.
