The fact makes the possible fight even more intriguing and interesting.

Sports experts say such a fight is unique as Nurmagomedov is good in wrestling, while Floyd uses pure boxing technics. The competition between two fighters with different technics and skills can become an intriguing experiment in the world of martial sport.
However, some fans met the news with a negative criticism, calling it ‘show not a sport’ and reminding that boxing and MMA are different things and shall not be confused. Many people said that such type of behavior is not common for Khabib as he had always possessed himself as a humble and reasonable fighter.
