Brendan Schaub believes that a Khabib-Floyd matchup is impossible, although the two are already considering a boxing match. He claimed that if it still happened, the US boxer would destroy the Russian MMA fighter in just 20 seconds.
Retired UFC Star Brendan Schaub has quashed the hopes of sports fans waiting for Khabib Nurmagomedov to take on Floyd Mayweather in a high-profile boxing-MMA crossover.
“Stop it,” Schaub told TMZ Sports when commenting on the prospects for such a matchup, which the two athletes have already agreed upon. “It’s never happening. It’s never happening.”
“It’s not happening. Ever,” he insisted, explaining that Russian grappler Khabib was not a striker, unlike boxing icon Floyd.
He went on to suggest that if such a fight would ever go down, it would take Mayweather all of ۲۰ seconds to knock out Nurmagomedov.
The Russian ace, however, seems more confident in his striking ability — or at least has some cards up his sleeve. Less than two weeks after beating McGregor in their UFC 229 super fight, Nurmagomedov called out the American boxing star Floyd Mayweather, 41, who finally retired from sports in ۲۰۱۷ after beating The Notorious.
“Come on, Floyd! I am ready to go out with you to fight, 50-0 vs. 27-0,” Khabib said, referring to Floyd’s 50-0 unbeaten run and his own 27-0 MMA win streak. “Two guys who never lost. Why not? Come on! In the jungle, there can be only one king, and that is me.”
Floyd has agreed to a match-up with Khabib: “Oh, we fighting. He called me out. So, he gotta come to my world. I’m my own boss. So, I can’t say what’s going on on Khabib’s end. But, on my end, we can make it happen.”
