California: Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White has hinted towards a possible fight between lightweight boxing champion Floyd Mayweather and Russian Fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov, adding that he wants it to happen in Octagon.

"Listen, if Mayweather wants to fight, come fight. You fight in the UFC. We're not boxing him. We did that once. That's over," TMZ quoted White, as saying.

 

"You wanna fight? You come fight ... a real fight," he added.

Earlier, Nurmagomedov's promoter Leonard Ellerbe had posted an Instagram video in which the boxer could be seen challenging Mayweather saying that there could only be one king in the jungle.

In response, Mayweather had accepted the challenge asking his partners to organise the bout.

Nurmagomedov had recently handed over a thumping defeat to the biggest name in the world of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Conor McGregor.

Mayweather, on the other hand, is undefeated in the 50 professional fights he has fought so far, while Nurmagomedov holds a 27-0 winning streak record.
