  • Watch: Floyd Mayweather Confirms He Is Definitely Boxing Khabib

Ever since he dispatched of Conor McGregor at UFC 229, lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has still managed to follow along in the former dual-division champion's footsteps, taking particular aim at retired boxer Floyd Mayweather.

Mayweather, 41, easily defeated McGregor in their bout in August previous year even though he is past his prime.

"I'd rather you chop my head off than give you the satisfaction of crying to you like a b**ch in the fight while we still have to come out in the next round, that was unbelievable", he continued.

"I'm my own boss, so I can't say what's going on on Khabib's end".

Nurmagomedov and McGregor have both been temporarily suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission pending a full investigation into the scenes that marred the end of their fight in Las Vegas.

"I'm talking to everybody right now", Abdelaziz said. But, OK so Khabib, you got my leftovers.

In comments to the TMZ Sports website, Mayweather was adamant that a fight with Nurmagomedov was "happening" provided it took place in the boxing ring.

That very fact has emerged in a new interview with TMZ where "Money" sensationally claims he will fight Nurmagomedov, then rematch McGregor.

"At the end of the day, Khabib is a UFC fighter". "First of all, the Mayweather team has not approached us at all".

"I've seen on social media that he put that basically he'll fight but he doesn't want to fight in Vegas".

Mayweather expects a "nine-figure payday" for the match, meaning he wants to earn a minimum of $100 million to fight the current UFC lightweight champion.

"We never give up on our brothers in Russian Federation and I will go to the end for my brother".

UFC president Dana White recently came out to dismiss speculation on Khabib's future, despite the fact that 50 Cent offered him a $2m deal to fight for him at Bellator MMA. I'm going to say somewhere between $110m and $200m guaranteed'.

Nurmagomedov told Mayweather "in the jungle there is only one king" in requesting a bout.

The same will obviously be true for Nurmagomedov, who is a skilled grappler and possesses what might be the best ground game in the UFC. Khabib boxes well, he showed that against McGregor, where he was one step ahead.
