‘Conor McGregor is running out of money, will return to fighting’

UFC superstar Conor McGregor may have earned a career high payday estimated at $100 million back in 2017, but MMA manager Ali Abdelaziz believes the fighter is “running out of money.”

“Notorious” and reigning UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov are currently on a collision course seemingly destined for the octagon. Speaking to TMZ Sports, Nurmagomedov’s manager Ali Abdelaziz offered his thoughts on the potential match up.

“Conor’s running out of money. This is why he agreed to fight Khabib.”

“It’s okay. We’re gonna contribute of 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.”

“He thinks he’s a gangster. 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.”
