‘Get the checkbook out!’ - Mayweather responds to Khabib call-out

I think I've been able to prove that you can make a fight exciting and make people really wanna see it without crossing any legal lines. That melee combined with McGregor's explosive bus incident earlier this year has Rousey questioning UFC's promotional tactics. "Looking forward to the rematch".

McGregor's grudge match with Nurmagomedov was his first outing in the Octagon since his multi-million-pound boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr, which he lost via a tenth-round TKO.

McGregor famously took on Floyd "Money" Mayweather a year ago in the most lucrative bout in boxing history. "Let's make Las Vegas great again", Mayweather stated.

And now by calling out "Money", Nurmagomedov could become the architect of the next exceptionally lucrative bout in fight sports.

Mayweather's reply comes after he condemned Khabib's actions after the McGregor fight at UFC 229 - predicting a big fine for the Russian.

Khabib was dominant inside the Octagon, but has since made a shocking revelation about the affect the fight had on his health.

Nurmagomedov's challenge came in a video posted on Instagram by Mayweather's promoter Leonard Ellerbe who indicated he ran into the UFC fighter at a fight card in Russian Federation. [But] in the jungle there is only one king.

"I think it's wrong what the UFC is doing to Khabib, they didn't do the same thing to McGregor", 50 Cent, whose given name is Curtis Jackson, wrote in a tweet.

"50-0 versus 27-0. Two guys, never never like lose". Only one king. Of course I am the king because he could not drop McGregor and I dropped him easily. UFC president Dana White has denied the rumors.

Currently, Nurmagomedov is suspended by the Nevada Athletic Commission pending an investigation into his attack on McGregor's team after UFC 229, and his $2 million purse is also being withheld. McGregor also left the cage and threw a punch at a person affiliated with Nurmagomedov.

"The Notorious" then fought with "The Eagle's" camp as numerous brawls broke out, including among members of the audience.
