Khabib Sends Floyd Mayweather His Terms For Boxing Fight
Khabib Nurmagomedov has already laid down the challenge to Floyd Mayweather this week, mentioning the fact that he put McGregor on his arse when the American didn't despite beating him by TKO.
And now the Russian fighter has laid out some of his own terms for the bout.
This is actually happening, folks.

In his latest post on Instagram, Khabib has said no to a potential fight in Las Vegas. The statement came shortly after Mayweather told CBS, Showtime and MGM Grand to 'get the checkbook out.'
Nurmagomedov goes on to explain the decision by saying: "They won't pay my money."
It's been nine days since Khabib defeated Conor McGregor and we still don't know the full scale of Nevada State's punishment.
In an exclusive interview with TMZSports, UFC president Dana White said the fighter should get a $250,000 fine and a hefty suspension.
"They took his whole purse right now and they're talking about keeping his purse - I do not think that that should happen," White told TMZ Sports.
"You should not be able to keep his whole purse. I think they should take ($250,000) from him.
"He absolutely keeps his title. And he's going to get suspended, so maybe you give him a four to six months suspension."
"The Nevada State Athletic Commission pulled the footage from us, and there's an investigation going on."

Khabib has still not received his $2 million purse since winning the bout, while Conor McGregor has received his pay check for the fight in Las Vegas.
It's clear that Nurmagomedov doesn't want a fight in Vegas after the incident, as a potential match-up with Mayweather is being touted.
"Hey let's go Floyd, we have to fight now," the UFC Lightweight title champ says in a video doing the rounds.
"50-0 versus 27-0. Two guys, never never like lose. In the jungle, only one king.
"Of course I am the king because he cannot drop McGregor. But I dropped him easily!"
CBS, Showtime and MGM Grand get the checkbook out!
