It looks like we’re set to see a lightweight title fight between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov sooner rather than later.

John Kavanagh, Conor McGregor’s longtime coach and friend, told fight analyst Robin Black in Dublin, “I would almost bet anything that this fight happens before the end of the year,” according to Jim Edwards of

Kavanagh also said, “I can’t imagine it not happening.”

According to Kahbib’s manager, Conor is running out of money, and needs to fight for the purse.

“It’s okay,” Ali says … “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.”

If Conor is anything like his buddy Mayweather, he’s running out of cash fast. You can’t keep up with spending like a multimillionaire if you’re not making.
