Conor McGregor Scared of Khabib Rematch ... Says Khabib's Manager
is scared. Scared of , and scared of a rematch ... and they ain't fighting, at least according to Khabib's manager.
Manager told TMZ Sports his superstar fighter wants to return to the Octagon in September ... so we asked, is there a shot Khabib fights Conor in a rematch of their record-setting ?
Ali's answer ...
"Conor McGregor did not ask for the rematch. He don't want to have nothing to do with the rematch."
In fact, Ali says it ain't just Conor who's shook ... his whole family and homeland is terrified of Khabib.
"His father don't wan't nothing to do with rematch. His mother don't want nothing to do with rematch. His kids. His wife. The whole country of Ireland. They don't want to spell the word rematch. They are fear. It's fear going around Ireland."
"They don't wan't to see anything that starts with 'K.'"
So, if it's not Conor ... who will Khabib fight?
Well, Ali says it could be -- but the Eagle's down to ... or anything.
"[Khabib] will fight a camel. A donkey. He will fight a bear. He will fight a tiger. But, I know one thing, we're gonna let Conor live rest of his life in peace."
Ali left us with a message for McGregor ... "If you can't inhale the smoke, don't talk about the smoke."
Not sure that's how the saying goes, but you probably get his point.
