Floyd Mayweather v Khabib Nurmagomedov fight ‘should happen in UFC’


Dana White (centre) wants Floyd Mayweather to face Khabib Nurmagomedov in a mixed martial arts bout

Boxer Floyd Mayweather should step into the octagon to face Khabib Nurmagomedov in a “real fight”, says UFC president Dana White.

UFC lightweight champion Nurmagomedov has suggested he could follow in Conor McGregor’s footsteps and try boxing, with Mayweather encouraging the bout.

But White wants to see the fight happen in a mixed martial arts arena.

“Listen, if Mayweather wants to fight, come fight. You fight in the UFC,” White told TMZ.
