Daniel Cormier: “Khabib Will Get Beaten So Badly He Will Start Wrestling In The Boxing Ring”
Many fighters think the match between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Floyd Mayweather Jr is a joke. There are very few who take it seriously. Yet, Floyd Mayweather Jr is not a man who backs down in front of the challenges. He accepted Khabib’s callout. For proper amount of money, of course!
Floyd Mayweather Jr destroyed Conor McGregor via tenth-round KO. It wouldn’t be the first time seeing him smashing MMA fighter. Daniel Cormier thinks Khabib’s match versus Mayweather is everything but a good idea. Despite Khabib is a good friend of his, DC advises him to stay away from Mayweather.

“Khabib better not try to box him. Khabib better not try to box Floyd Mayweather. What is he doing, man?’ Cormier jokingly asked during an appearance 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,” said the “champ-champ,” who simply couldn’t help but laugh it all off.”
But Khabib Nurmagomedov at least knocked Conor McGregor down in the second round. On the other side, Mayweather Jr was hitting him until the referee stopped the match. So Khabib might say he has better punch power!
Khabib’s UFC career is currently under a big question mark. It looks like his plan to protect Zubaira Tukhugov failed. His Russian brother is replaced by Michael Johnson at UFC Fight Night 138. If Khabib decides to break his contract, he could get tons of money by 50 Cent to sign for Bellator MMA. He could try some other promotions as well. But a possible showdown with Floyd Mayweather Jr would secure his family to the rest of his life.
Do you think Daniel Cormier has right? Do you think Khabib can survive twelve rounds versus Floyd Mayweather Jr?
