Undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov put on a dominant performance inside the octagon on Saturday, Oct. 6. The reigning title holder finished mixed martial arts superstar Conor McGregor within the fourth round of their UFC 229 main event for a stunning submission victory.
After the fight, Nurmagomedov would go on to eventually call out 50-0 undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. to a boxing match. Speaking to TMZ Sports, Floyd Mayweather Jr. has since revealed that he believes a fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov could profit $200 million more than his 2017 boxing match against Conor McGregor.
“… When I face Khabib, I’m getting a nine-figure payday. It’s more than the McGregor fight – probably $100 million more, guaranteed. It could be somewhere between $110 (million) and $200 million (more) guaranteed.”
