It looks like UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov isn’t finished riding the high from his victory against Conor McGregor at UFC 229 – in fact, the wrestler has called out yet another formidable opponent, as well.

Khabib challenged boxing pro Floyd Mayweather in an Instagram post on October 13, where he stood alongside boxing manager DeJuan Blake.

“Hey, let’s go, Floyd,” Khabib said with a smile. “We have to fight now. 50 and 0 versus 27 and 0 – two guys who never lose.”

He appeared confident in a victory against the boxer, stating that he had managed to drop McGregor when Mayweather hadn’t. He even referred to himself as ‘the king of the jungle’ in reference to his record.

“Let’s go, why not?” he asked. “Because in the jungle, only one king… Of course I’m the king, because he cannot drop McGregor, but I dropped him easily. That’s why. Let’s go.”

Blake also offered Khabib a spot in Mayweather Productions, as revealed by a statement in the video’s caption. “Fuck UFC & Bellator MMA, sign with Mayweather Productions and get what you deserve!” Blake wrote. “Matter of fact, Affiliation Management is the PLUG.”

While Mayweather has yet to respond to Khabib’s challenge, he previously stated that Khabib’s post-match brawl after defeating McGregor at UFC 229 was ‘very unprofessional.’

Blake’s offer marks another opportunity in a slew of proposals Khabib has received following his assault on McGregor’s Jiu Jitsu coach at UFC 229. 

Alongside an alleged offer from the WWE and 50 Cent’s proposal with MMA team Bellator, it seems like Khabib could have a shot with Mayweather Productions, to boot.

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has revealed her plans for her Twitch VODs, after many creators on the platform, including some of the very biggest, were hit with DMCA takedown notifications over content in their back-catalog.

On October 21, some of the most popular names on the platform revealed that they have been getting these DMCA notifications, with people such as Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar, and more finding that clips and VODs from past broadcasts have been deleted.

Obviously, in recent months there have been issues with streamers using copyrighted music on their stream, with many opting to stop so as to avoid any legal issues, but now their past content is being sifted through and checked, and the results are wiping out some of these creators’ favorite moments on stream.

While many streamers are doing all they can to keep their content on their Twitch channel available, Pokimane has revealed her plans for past VODs.

Pokimane has been streaming full-time since 2017, but may have to remove a lot of her content to avoid DMCA takedown requests.

After a viewer told Poki that fellow streamer Saqib ‘Lirik’ Zahid was to delete all of his VODs he’s built up over the years, she suggested that the same might be the case for her own channel.

“Lirik’s going to delete all his VODs? Well, guess what, it’s not just Lirik,” she told her viewers during her October 22 stream.

She continued: “Today, tomorrow, at some point, you guys are going to come across my channel and there’s going to be zero content. Sucks to say, but it is what it is.”

Of course, there will be many top streamers considering that reality right now: that the content they’ve put out over however many years could simply be erased due to the music being played in the background.

Some content creators have already started taking down old VODs and deleting clips, and Pokimane may be just one of many that do so to avoid being banned from the platform altogether. We might see some creators start transferring their content to YouTube, but this would likely require a Herculean effort, too.

At the time of writing, Pokimane’s VODs haven’t been wiped from her channel.
