Khabib Nurmagomedov's challenge to Floyd Mayweather didn't go unanswered for long. "But, on my end, we can make it happen". "We intend to go to the end".
Mayweather did not knock down McGregor during their fight a year ago, but appeared to be toying with his opponent in the early rounds.
"I'm Floyd Mayweather. I'm the A-side, you call me out you come into my world". Khabib, you got my leftovers.
