Russia's Khabib Nurmagomedov, UFC lightweight champion who defeated Conor McGregor of Ireland in the main event of UFC 229, speaks during the ceremony of honouring him at Anzhi Arena in Kaspiysk, a city in the republic of Dagestan, Russia October 8, 2018.

Via MMAFighting.com, Nurmagomedov was recently ringside with Leonard Ellerbe, the CEO of Mayweather Promotions.

"Let's go Floyd. We have to fight now: 50-0 versus 27-0", Nurmagomedov said with Ellerbe standing next to him smiling. Two guys, never lose.

Yesterday, Khabib Nurmagomedov challenged Floyd "Money" Mayweather to a fight in a video on Instagram, because their can be "only one king" in the jungle - seemingly forgetting that they inhabit different jungles.

"Of course I am the king because he could not drop McGregor and I dropped him easily", added Nurmagomedov, who not only dominated McGregor with his superior wrestling skills, but also showed himself to be a competent striker, landing a torrent of strikes to the Irishman's head and body.

Mayweather did not knock down McGregor during their fight a year ago, but appeared to be toying with his opponent in the early rounds.

After McGregor's tap-out to Khabib, a mass brawl broke out outside of the octagon, that caught the eyes of the millions watching.

The former UFC women's bantamweight champion, knockout artist and reigning WWE Raw women's champion opened up on Nurmagomedov's fight with Conor McGregor in an interview with TMZ Sports this week. The Eddie fight was off of a big training camp for the Diaz II fight, which was off of a big training camp for Diaz I. The Nevada State Athletic Commission is now withholding the Russian's purse after he jumped out the ring to attack his rival's team following the fight.

"I had weight loss and I felt very bad". Because that would have been an excuse.

"McGregor had a fight, I don't know the other one but I know he was unbeaten", he stated.

"Victory, defeat, all of this is not as important as the good things in life".
