Conor McGregor x Khabib Nurmagomedov could break all kinds of UFC box office records.
TMZ caught up with Conor McGregor's manager Audie Attar at a Las Vegas bar on the eve of his client's fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov. For some reason, the field reporter deemed it necessary to skirt around the issue at hand. Instead, he chose to ask about a possible Floyd Mayweather rematch, which as you might imagine, produced a less-than startling "you never know" answer from Audie Attar.
McGregor then listed a bunch of less eye-popping mixed martial artists, should they look past the impending encounter, which Audie certainly isn't taking for granted I must warn you. McGregor's opponent is not only the title holder of his division, but the betting-odds favorite in this matchup, due to two things, Khabib imposing flawless record, and Conor McGregor potential ring rust.
Lest we forget the video that was posted some time ago on YouTube, of a youthful Khabib Nurmagomedov tussling with a live-bear. This is the type of brute McGregor is going up against, and these are the type of video memos Nurmagomedov and his family deem as "sentimental."
Audie also took the time to dispel a rumor that Conor was only seeing $3 million of the proceeds from tonight's fight. McGregor is likely to take away a sum in the region of $100 million for this fight alone, according to reports.
