Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul slammed by UFC legend Khabib, who says pair ‘sparred and made money’

FLOYD MAYWEATHER’s clash with Logan Paul was nothing more than a glorified sparring match, according to UFC legend Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The former five-weight world champion locked horns with the social media superstar in an eight-round exhibition bout earlier this month.

And YouTube sensation Paul, 26, shocked the world by going the distance with Money.

Nurmagomedov, however, wasn’t impressed by the bout, saying: “What’s there to say? They came out, made money. It’s purely business.

“There was no competitive aspect to it. Old Mayweather came out, they sparred and made money.

“What else is there to say? How do I feel about it? The guys decided to make money.

“Should I tell them to not make money and not to fight?

“They came out, put on a show and earned what – tens of millions.”


The idea of taking part in a lucrative exhibition doesn’t pique the interest of the recently-retired Nurmagomedov.

The Russian said: “I have no interest in doing something like that yet.”

Nurmagomedov, who announced his retirement from MMA last October, flirted with a boxing match against Mayweather shortly after his 2018 victory over Conor McGregor.

And the Dagestani destroyer recently revealed he received a whopping £72million offer to share the ring with the boxing legend.

The undefeated Nurmagomedov told RT Sport: “The enticement is always there.

“There were such discussions with Saudi Arabia.

“They wanted me to fight there. I don’t know about $100 million.

“That was not the exact amount but about that.”

Nurmagomedov announced his retirement from MMA last October after his second-round submission victory over Justin Gaethje.

UFC bigwig Dana White tried to convince the 32-year-old to return to the cage but saw his efforts to lure him out of retirement come up short.
