Conor McGregor: Fan dies after being beaten up at house party

Conor McGregor: Fan dies after being beaten up at house party

Mayweather has challenged UFC star Khabib to step into the boxing ring for a mega-fight he says could be worth $US200 million (roughly $AU280 million).

Mayweather has, however, been a past visitor to the Russian capital - including to open "The Mayweather Boxing Academy" just outside Moscow.

"I'd rather you chop my head off than give you the satisfaction of crying to you like a b**ch in the fight while we still have to come out in the next round, that was unbelievable", he continued.

In an interview with ESPN.com, White said he wants to see former interim champ Tony Ferguson - not McGregor - get the next shot at the title.

"I already know what he [McGregor] is gonna do, you know, he's a quitter, you can't take that out of him, you can't train that out of him, you can't beat that out of him... you can beat that in to him, but you're gonna beat that out of him". OK, Khabib. You got my leftovers.

The 41-year-old UFC fan was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

"Let's go Floyd. We have to fight now: 50-0 versus 27-0". He added, "I'm my own boss". I can't say what's going on at Khabib's end.

The fight made both fighters a fortune, with McGregor pocketing a reported $US100 million and Mayweather earning up to four times that amount. "I can't say what's going on on Khabib's end, but on my end we can make it happen". More than the McGregor fight. "I'm going to say somewhere between 110 million and 200 million USA dollars guaranteed".

The attraction for Nurmagomedov is clear. Nurmagomedov jumped out of the Octagon to brawl in the crowd shortly after defeating McGregor.

McGregor also brought whiskey for the firefighters, took photos with them and signed autographs.

Mayweather responded to Nurmagomedov's call-out and has now stepped up his social media activity in an attempt to hype a potential match-up.

After beating McGregor at UFC 229, Khabib called out the boxer Mayweather via the CEO of Mayweather Promotions Leonard Ellerbe's Instagram. 50-0 vs. 27-0. We are two guys who never lose.
