Who would win in a boxing match: Floyd Mayweather or Khabib Nurmagomedov?
Different fighter, same story. These MMA guys think they can just step into a boxer's world and rule the ring, but it just isn't going to happen—especially against one of the greatest to ever step into the ring. Mayweather made an example of Conor McGregor and he would have no trouble beating Nurmagomedov.
The current UFC Lightweight Champion has power, but his strength lies in his wrestling. He might get a good shot in, but Mayweather can evade anything he can bring. The undefeated boxer picked apart one UFC fighter. He would do it to another.
Mayweather may have beaten McGregor, but Nurmagomedov is a different animal. This is the same guy that trains for fights by wrestling bears. BEARS. If he's willing to go that far to train, he should have his own "Rocky IV" montage.
Nurmagomedov doesn't need to outbox a seasoned fighter. He has enough power to knock anyone out with one shot. He proved that he could strike with McGregor and he would put a "1" in Mayweather's loss column.
