Khabib Nurmagomedovm, who beat Conor McGregor at the UFC 229 event last month, only has 1 fight left on his contract.
If that final UFC fight is not with Floyd Mayweather, he will schedule it himself when he becomes a free agent, according to the Khabib’s manager Ali Abdelaziz.
“Khabib will respect Dana’s wishes while he’s under contract, but, once his deal is up, they’re willing to contact Floyd directly and hash out a deal for a 2019 fight date,” Abdelaziz has said.
“If Floyd does agree to an MMA fight, Ali warns the guy to save up for life insurance — “because he’s not going to be walking anymore. He’s going to be drinking water [through a] straw.”
