    Khabib Nurmagomedov brushes aside $100 million Saudi offer for McGregor or Mayweather

    Rumors are swirling that there are people in Saudi Arabia that want to pay UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov $100 million to either fight Conor McGregor or box Floyd Mayweather.Nurmagomedov doesn't appear all that interested in the rumors right now. And who could blame him? He's got a red hot contender in Tony Ferguson already on tap for the UFC 249 main event on April 18 in Brooklyn.Ali Abdelaziz, Nurmagmedov's manager, told TMZ recently that he has personally been in touch with the people that want to pay his fighter $100 million to fight in Saudi Arabia."I know some people in Saudi Arabia, they met with me, they want to pay $100 million to Khabib to fight Conor in Saudi Arabia. They want to pay Khabib $100 million to fight Floyd in Saudi Arabia," said Abdelaziz.Both Abdelaziz and Nurmagomedov, however, know they must remain focused on the task at hand before entertaining any such offers beyond UFC 249.“I have a fight on April 18,” Nurmagomedov said, according to RT Sport. “I have a very serious fight. For the past month and a half, I’ve been consistently training day and night. I’ve gotten myself in good shape, to where I’m supposed to be 70 days before a fight. I feel great. What will happen after a fight no one knows."Nurmagomedov has been steadfast that he has no interest in a rematch with Conor McGregor until the Irishman earns it. Nurmagomedov defeated McGregor by way of fourth-round submission at UFC 229 in a fight that many people feel he dominated.“I’m surprised that people even question me about a rematch. It seems that people want to continue the festivities after that fight. Everyone saw what happened in the Octagon. I controlled the fight every step of the way. I did everything I wanted to him. He even gave up. How can we even discuss a rematch? We can only talk about continuing the festivities and making money. The question is: do I want that? I am focused on Tony Ferguson.”Though there is bad blood that lingers between them, Nurmagomedov, despite a flashy pay day dangling before him, doesn't see a justification for the rematch.“Why do I need that kind of money, there are so many organizations... There’s not only football for the blind, there’s Sambo and other sports. Let (the UFC) give it to them if they don’t know what to do with the money. But giving me $100 million to beat up that idiot again? I don’t think that’s rational.”* * *TRENDING Conor McGregor voices support for US President Donald Trump* * * Dana White says Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Conor McGregor 2 might rival Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather(Subscribe to MMAWeekly.com on YouTube)

    U.S. Manufacturing Posts Its First Expansion in Six Months

    (Bloomberg) -- Terms of Trade is a daily newsletter that untangles a world embroiled in trade wars. Sign up here. A gauge of U.S. manufacturing rebounded sharply in January, topping estimates and signaling growth in the beleaguered sector for the first time since July.The Institute for Supply Management’s purchasing managers’ index, based on a survey of manufacturers, increased to 50.9 in January from an almost four-year low of 47.8, according to Monday’s data. While just above the 50 level that signals expansion, the monthly advance was the largest since mid-2013. ISM last week revised data back to 2012. Stocks, bond yields and the dollar extended gains after the report.The gain -- exceeding the median projection for 48.5 -- reflected sizable improvements in the orders and production components, while the employment gauge contracted at a slower pace. The new orders index jumped to an eight-month high of 52 and the production gauge surged 9.5 points, also the largest gain in more than six years.The figures, along with the strongest reading for the ISM’s export index since September 2018, suggest the worst may be behind for American factories. The gain also brings the group’s measure more in line with IHS Markit’s factory index, which, unlike the ISM figure, showed expansion in manufacturing for all of last year.“We’re going to have to wait and see” whether the PMI continues to expand in coming months, Timothy Fiore, chair of the ISM’s manufacturing survey committee, said on a call with reporters. “Weakness in the inputs for January questioned demand for expansion in February and whether we’re at the beginning of sustained PMI expansion.” Additionally, the coronavirus is likely to have an impact in February, he said.Depressed by weak export markets, a trade war, cutbacks in business investment and elevated inventories relative to sales, the sector has struggled to gain traction. As a result, the services sector has fueled the economic expansion. Sustained manufacturing growth would indicate a partial trade deal with China is providing impetus for further expansion.What Bloomberg’s Economists Say“The reading likely reflects the positive impact of the phase-one trade deal between the U.S. and China. However, we are expecting the uptick to be temporary as the Boeing production halt and recent uncertainties in response to the coronavirus outbreak may stress global supply chains.”\-- Eliza WingerClick here for the reaction note.The ISM measure shows the sector is barely expanding and remains in a precarious position. A quickly spreading coronavirus threatens to damp activity abroad and adds to uncertainty about global growth prospects, while domestic demand has cooled and Boeing Co.’s production halt of the 737 Max is weighing on producers.Eight of 18 manufacturing industries reported growth in January, led by furniture, wood products, food and computers. Eight also reported that business shrank, including the print, apparel and electrical equipment sectors.Another report Monday showed companies are cutting back on capital expenditures. Private construction spending on non-residential structures, including factories, hotels and office buildings, slumped 1.8% in December from a month earlier, the most since April.The ISM’s factory employment gauge improved in January but remained anemic at 46.6, suggesting hiring weakness in the sector may continue. While factories last year added the fewest jobs since 2016, the Labor Department’s monthly employment report Friday will offer information about hiring at the start of 2020.An index of prices paid showed input costs increased as the gauge of supplier deliveries held above 50, suggesting shipments are slowing.In a separate report, IHS Markit’s factory gauge eased in January to a final reading of 51.9 from 52.4 a month earlier.(Adds comment from ISM in fifth paragraph)To contact the reporter on this story: Reade Pickert in Washington at contact the editors responsible for this story: Scott Lanman at , Vince Golle, Jeff KearnsFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
