“Larry Brown Sports-The manager for Khabib Nurmagomedov says that Conor McGregor is running out of money and that’s why he wants to get back into the octagon.
McGregor has not fought in the UFC since Nov. 2016, though he did face Floyd Mayweather Jr in a boxing match last year. TMZ Sports says McGregor is getting closer to fighting Khabib, and the rival’s manager says it’s because Conor needs money.
“Conor’s running out of money,” Ali Abdelaziz told TMZ Sports. “This is why he agreed to fight Khabib.”
The two sides reportedly are discussing a potential fight at UFC 229 or UFC 232, both of which are later this year.
As for the claim that McGregor may be running out of money despite earning around $100 million for his fight with Mayweather, we have our doubts. Even Mike Tyson during his prime might have had trouble burning through that much cash. However, McGregor probably will have to shell out some big bucks to settle all the damage he caused with his bus attack prior to UFC 223.”
Going through a lawsuit and paying to avoid serving jail time might actually break the bank for someone, even if they did make $99million alone last year just from fighting Floyd Mayweather. However, this might not be the only places that McGregor’s money has gone.
I’d imagine that owning a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, a Cadillac Escalade, a Rolls-Royce Ghost, a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Ghost, a McLaren 650S, a Lamborghini Aventador (the old model, a convertible Rolls Royce, a Huracan, a BMW i8, a Range Rover, another Range Rover, a Mercedes-Benz S550 Coupe, and a Mercedes-Benz Sedans can cost someone quite a bit of money. Oh, and if you have a house like this then you probably spent a little bit of money on that, too.
So yeah, after all that shit you might be running low on money. It must be nice knowing that you can just hop in an octagon and whoop someone’s ass and get a couple of mil to make your life a little bit easier. I wish I could do something like that. But nope, here I am. Just staring at a computer screen all night and day. Maybe one day, though.
