Khabib Nurmagomedov Has An Offer For A Boxing Fight This Summer

Khabib Nurmagomedov Has An Offer For A Boxing Fight This Summer

A suspended Nurmagomedov claims that he "nearly landed on" movie star Leonardo DiCaprio when hopping into the crowd.

In an interview with the Russian channel Match TV, Nurmagomedov said he and DiCaprio watched the PSG soccer club among a cluster of celebrities in November. "This summer, I think". "He's a big fan [of MMA]".

If you'll recall, Khabib Nurmagomedov jumped the fence at UFC 229 after securing a submission victory over Conor McGregor.

McGregor is now banned from fighting after the Nevada Athletic State Commission (NSAC) gave him a six-month backdated ban for the role he played in the post-fight brawls that marred his UFC 229 loss to Nurmagomedov.

Nurmagomedov said that after he met DiCaprio in Paris, the actor invited him out for dinner. "So he hasn't said that to me - we'll deal with it when we deal with it". He said he only takes photos with kids... with everyone else it's not possible.

"I'm not thinking that far ahead", Whittaker said.

LeBron James picks Kevin Durant first for All-Star Game
LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo were named All-Star captains after securing the most fan votes in this year's balloting. Veteran special additions Dwyane Wade and Dirk Nowitzki were designated for the final two picks of the draft.

Nurmagomedov later captioned an Instagram post with DiCaprio: "He knows about UFC more than me".

It started off great ... with Floyd Sr. stickin' and movin' and throwing some pretty quick shots - but, when the other guy started to fight back, it didn't go well for the old man.

"And at that moment Vladimir Vladimirovich phoned me".

Lightweight champion Nurmagomedov was given a nine-month suspension and a $500,000 fine for his actions in Las Vegas.

Should Khabib take up the boxing offer?
