The showdown between the pair has been high on many MMA fans’ wish list ever since Khabib’s unforgettable call out of McGregor at UFC 205.
According to Khabib’s manager Ali Abdelaziz, Irishman is running low in the dough and have no choice to make a return to Octagon. His recent lavish villa purchase in Spain and pending court case wouldn’t pay for themselves. (via TMZ Sports)
“Conor’s running out of money, this is why he agreed to fight Khabib,” Abdelaziz told TMZ Sports. “It’s okay, we’re gonna contribute to him making some money, but at the end of the day, we owe him an ass whooping. He needs to get his ass whooped from Khabib.”
Ali also gave his insight on Mcgregor’s so-called attitude of ‘gangster’ and believes this type of behavior never ends well for such men.
He thinks he’s a gangster,” Ali says … “I don’t think he is. But, when you think you’re a gangster, you’re going to get treated like a gangster. And gangster, they end in jail or get beat up.”
Well, this is an interesting claim from ‘The Eagle’s’ manager, to remind you Mcgregor made reportedly $100 million for his August 2017 boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr. This amount doesn’t include endorsement deals.
Mcgregor hasn’t competed inside the Octagon since a knockout win over Eddie Alvarez to score the UFC lightweight title back in 2016.
Mcgregor is currently preparing to return to court on July 26th in Brooklyn for his antics at UFC 223 media day, and his Octagon return is still in the air.
Do you really believe that Mcgregor is running low on money?
