Khabib Nurmagomedov offers to fight Floyd Mayweather

Mayweather has not fought since overcoming McGregor but stated last month that he was coming out of retirement for a rematch with Manny Pacquiao. Not surprising, really, given that Mayweather had the comfort blanket of his own sport.

"If you decide to fire him, you should know that you'll lose me too", Nurmagomedov wrote on Instagram.

Stood alongside Leonard Ellerbe, the chief executive of Mayweather Promotions, at an event in Russia, Nurmagomedov teased that he had handled McGregor better than Mayweather. "Let's go, why not?"

"Because in the jungle there is only one king". Of course, I am the king because he can not drop McGregor but I drop him easily.

Nurmagomedov extended his professional mixed martial arts record to 27-0 and retained his UFC lightweight title with a fourth-round submission victory over Conor McGregor at UFC 229 in Las Vegas last weekend. Seconds later, three people from Nurmagomedov's team were then arrested after attacking his opponent. McGregor, meanwhile, declined to press any charges and has been asking for a rematch.

Fracking to begin in Britain after court ruling
Mr Justice Supperstone is expected to give his judgment at noon on an application brought by environmental campaigner Bob Dennett. The firm will initially test gas to see whether it is viable, but if the operation is a success up to 20 wells could be built.

"Hey, let's go, Floyd", Khabib said with a smile. They could have killed someone there; why [does] no-one say anything about insulting my homeland, religion, nation, family?

Kavanagh says McGregor was focused on the Khabib fight entirely when he was in training and he believes he has a mind capable of doing that and also dealing with his various business interests. I finished what he had started.

However if the disillusioned Khabib does want to step away from UFC, Vince McMahon surely wouldn't think twice about trying to bring the Russian into the squared circle, just like he did with Ronda Rousey. But don't forget that it was Conor who had hit my other brother FIRST, just check the video.

"I bumped into him on Sunday night at around 1am", he said. "I suppose in a week or two we'll sit down and assess what went right [and] what went wrong". "If you still decide to fire him, don't forget to send me my broken contract, otherwise I'll break it myself". This one, as I said was nearly two years out. "I hope it won't get stuck in your throat". "We intend to go to the end".

Dana White, the UFC president, said in the aftermath of the brawl that Tukhugov would never fight in UFC again.
