Since his victory against Conor McGregor in Las Vegas, Khabib Nurmagomedov hasn’t exactly stayed out of the spotlight.

Taking to Instagram, the Russian set his sights on a new opponent, calling out none other than boxing veteran Floyd Mayweather and challenging him to a fight.

Khabib called out Mayweather while he was hanging out with Leonard Ellerbe, CEO of Mayweather Promotions.

Obviously feeling confident after his win over McGregor, the Russian suggested he and Mayweather should get together.

In the video, he says:

Hey let’s go Floyd, we have to fight now. 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!
