Who does Khabib Nurmagomedov want to face next?

Well, according to the video below, he'd like a shot at Floyd Mayweather… because when you want to make a ton of money in the fight game that's what you do.

Here's Khabib and Leoard Ellerbe, the CEO of Mayweather Productions, from Saturday night at a World Boxing Super Series event in Russia:

Khabib said, all while smiling as if knowing this will never happen:

"Let's go, Floyd. We have to fight now. 50-0 vs 27-0, two guys who never lose, why not? Because in the jungle there is only one king. Only one king. Of course I am the king because he could not drop McGregor and I dropped him easily. Let's go."

Conor McGregor says he wants to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. again

  Conor McGregor says he wants to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. again Conor McGregor has a big fight coming up on Saturday but also has his eye on a rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr. McGregor joined “Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show” on Monday and said that he would like to face Mayweather again.

Khabib is right - he did drop McGregor with a right hand during their fight at UFC 229, which is something Mayweather didn't do in his fight with McGregor (but definitely could have if he took the fight 100 percent seriously).

But hopefully this talk is just talk and a fun, random video from a Saturday night of fights in Russia and not the beginning of some long, drawn out show that ends with the best boxer ever picking apart a UFC star in something that resembles more of a circus than a real sporting event.

Khabib, however, has all the right in the world to be flying high after his win over McGregor. And he has every right to go after the most money he can make.

And we have every right to hope his fights remain in the Octagon.
