Khabib prefers Mayweather fight over all UFC options

Reigning UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has revealed that he prefers Floyd Mayweather fight over all of UFC options.

“Our fight will be twice as interesting. Two unbeaten fighters, it will be interesting to see which one falls or takes a step back,” he said in a press conference in Moscow to launch his autobiography.

“For legacy and in the sense of the money aspect, and in a sporting sense, I think the Mayweather fight is much more interesting,” Khabib said. “The athletics commission needs to finish up first and then we’ll talk.”

Khabib is undefeated in 27 UFC bouts including October’s submission of Conor McGregor.
