Conor McGregor is running out of money according to Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager who says the Crumlin man has agreed to a fight because he's feeling the pinch.
Ali Abdelaziz has said The Notorious will take on the UFC Lightweight Champion and that they've already outlined three potential dates for a clash.
One of the upcoming dates, November 3 in Madison Square, is likely to be off the cards as McGregor might struggle to get a fighting licence off the back of the infamous bus attack.
Abdelaziz's fighter Khabib was the target of the attack which is still being dealt with by the New York courts.
Speaking to TMZ, the manager said: "Conor's running out of money, this is why he agreed to fight Khabib.
"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.
