Cormier: Khabib is Crazy, Mayweather Will Beat Him Up Bad!

UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier is warning his close friend, Khabib Nurmagomedov, to stay far away from a potential boxing match with five division world champion Floyd Mayweather.

Two weeks ago, Khabib after successfully defending his UFC lightweight title against Conor McGregor at UFC 229 in Las Vegas - raising his perfect record to 27-0, although the victory was marred by scenes that followed the fight as both men clashed with individuals from the opposing camps.

But as the dust continues to settle on the fallout from that bout, Khabib registered an interest in taking on Mayweather, who improved his record to 50-0 with a TKO win over McGregor last year - when the MMA superstar attempting his own transition to boxing.


Standing alongside Leonard Ellerbe, the chief executive of Mayweather Promotions, at the recent WBSS event in Russia, Khabib teased that he had handled McGregor better than Mayweather.

"Let's go, Floyd, we have to fight now," the 30-year-old fighter said in a video posted to Ellerbe's Instagram page. "50-0 versus 27-0, two guys who have never, never lost. Let's go. Why not?

"In the jungle, there is only one king. Of course, I am the king. He could not drop McGregor, but I dropped him easily. That's right. Let's go."

Khabib and McGregor have temporarily been suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for their roles in the UFC 229 brawl, with a meeting set for Oct. 24 to discuss further penalties.

Cormier, worried about his friend, says Khabib will take a real beating in a boxing match - even with Mayweather being 41-years-old.

“Khabib better not try to box him. Khabib better not try to box Floyd Mayweather. What is he doing, man?’ Cormier said on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show.

“Unless he’s just going to go do it for money, because he is going to get beat. I love Khabib man but he is going to get beat up by Floyd Mayweather. He’s crazy. He is going to start wrestling. Khabib is going to start wrestling in the boxing ring. He’s going to get beat so bad he is going to start wrestling.”

DC is Khabib's good mate, but he's just being honest. I mean it's just a cash grab for Khabib, so fair play to him if he could get it. I think this one is just talk though. McGregor/Mayweather worked because…
