Gamer Simulates Khabib Nurmagomedov Vs Floyd Mayweather UFC Fight
Khabib Nurmagomedov and Floyd Mayweather could fight each other at some point in the near future and one gamer has simulated how it would go down if it were to happen in the UFC.
Last year Mayweather announced he was coming out of retirement once again in 2020 and that he'd be working with UFC president Dana White when he did fight again.
Talk of a rematch with Conor McGregor or fight with Khabib refuse to go away and one gamer simulated a possible MMA fight between the Russian and the American using EA Sports UFC 3, with a surprising conclusion.
In the simulated fight Mayweather is victorious with a first round KO, thanks to a wonderful left hook, after three times knocking the UFC lightweight champion down to the canvas.
There's no reason why 'Money,' 50-0 inside the ring following his 2017 defeat of McGregor, could win a fight and if he did he'd certainly be on his feet whilst doing it, but the fight is a bit unrealistic.
With the first knockdown coming just after the opening minute you'd be expecting Nurmagomedov to go for a takedown and look for a submission but instead he continues to try and trade blows with the boxer.
Khabib's manager Ali Abdelaziz has claimed he's been offered $100 million for his man to face Mayweather, saying, "I know some people in Saudi Arabia right now. They met with me. They want to pay $100 million to fight Conor in Saudi Arabia. They want to pay $100 million for Khabib to fight Floyd in Saudi Arabia."
Abdelaziz, who was a big part of the heated rivalry between Khabib and McGregor, has also said in the past that any fight would have to be a hybrid boxing and MMA contest, with at least one round of mixed martial arts.
The Eagle is finally set to face Tony Ferguson at UFC 249 in March, after the pair have been meant to face each other four times in the past, with the lightweight title on the line.
White has previously suggested that the winner would face McGregor in the future but the current champion wants the Irishman to earn it with more victories other than his comeback win over Donald Cerrone.
