Nurmagomedov recently called out the retired boxing great, having extended his flawless MMA record to 27-0 by destroying McGregor in the pair's megafight in Las Vegas.
"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.More news: Julian Assange’s communications partly restored by Ecuadorian government
"I'm my own boss, so I can't say what's going on on Khabib's end, but on my end we can make it happen".
St-Pierre appeared on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show this week, and when quizzed on potentially facing Nurmagomedov, GSP responded: "I always say that the thing that excites me the most is when I could be the first to do something, you know?"
"Of course we know Vegas is the fighting capital, and after the fight you have to conduct yourself like a true professional", said Mayweather.
This time it's Khabib Nurmagomedov who has Mayweather's attention. Of course, I am the king because he can not drop McGregor but I drop him easily. Nurmagomedov is now suspended by the Nevada Athletic Commission (NSAC) for his actions following his fight with Conor McGregor at UFC 229. "It could be somewhere upwards of $110m to $200m guaranteed". Nurmagomedov would stand to cash in as well of course, and since the Nevada State Athletic Commission is playing keep-away with the champion's fight purse due to the post-fight melee, he probably wouldn't mind sticking it to the UFC and cashing a big boxing check in the process. I can't think of a better man, a fighter right now who has a better legacy than Khabib in terms of popularity and legacy.More news: Iran Ready for Joint Action with Pakistan to Free Abducted Forces: Commander
If that situation gets resolved, it will be up to Nurmagomedov to decide whether he wants to meet Mayweather's demands.
"I'm Floyd Mayweather", he said. Because in the jungle, there's only one king.More news: Saudi crown prince 'denies' Khashoggi knowledge to Trump
