‘Didn’t Beg Enough’ for Rematch
… Khabib’s Manager Says

… this according to Khabib’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz.
Of course, the REAL reason is that Khabib vs. Dustin is for the unified UFC lightweight title — which was a huge priority to Dana White — but hey, who doesn’t love a little smack talk?!
So, when will the Khabib vs. Conor fight actually happen? Maybe never.
Ali says he doesn’t believe McGregor ever wants to fight again — saying Conor’s more concerned with being an “Instagram model” these days than fighting for a UFC title.
Ali also says the UFC is stacked with talent — from Khabib to Tony Ferguson to Poirier — and they don’t need Conor anymore.
So, if Conor really does want a second crack at Khabib, what needs to happen?
“Get maybe 2 or 3 wins,” Ali says … “Then get on his knees and beg!”
“At the end of the day, UFC doesn’t need Conor. We don’t need Conor. But, Conor needs us right now.”
