Khabib Nurmagomedov Conor Doesn’t Deserve Rematch ‘He Don’t Do Nothing!’

Breaking News

Khabib Nurmagomedov has a message for Conor McGregor — Want a rematch? Get in line. 

The UFC superstar touched down in Australia with his crew on Wednesday where he was swarmed by local media and fans. 

Khabib was super cool with everyone — taking selfies and talking with people — but the headline here is the trash-talk directed at McGregor. 

One of the reporters asked if Conor should get the rematch — to which Khabib smirked and said, “Rematch for what?!”

The reporter brought up all the talking Conor did before their fight at UFC 229 back in October — Khabib again shot back with an insult.

“Before last fight he talked too. But, when we go inside the cage, he don’t do nothing.”

Of course, Khabib mauled Conor before McGregor tapped out in the 4th round

Despite Khabib’s position, UFC boss Dana White told TMZ Sports he IS working on the rematch and it should go down in 2019 … if everything goes according to plan.

The two had been trading barbs on social media recently — with Khabib posting a video clip showing him strangling McGregor with the caption, “You will live with this shame all your life #tapmachine.”

Conor McGregor Calls Out Tenshin Nasukawa I Wanna Beat His Ass Too!

Breaking News

$ 9 million for 2 minutes of work?? 

Conor McGregor wants some of that action — which is why he’s calling out Tenshin Nasukawa … the guy who got his ass kicked by Floyd Mayweather on New Year’s Eve. 

“I wish to go to Tokyo to face Tenshin Nasukawa in a Mixed Martial Arts exhibition bout,” McGregor said in a note to the UFC and his agents at Paradigm Sports Management.

“Before this summer. Please arrange this, this instant. Yours sincerely, The champ champ.”

The Tenshin vs. Floyd fight was supposed to be a 3 round exhibition — but Tenshin’s corner threw in the towel with 41 seconds left in the 1ST ROUND after Floyd knocked him down multiple times. 

Some people think the fight was fixed and Tenshin took a dive … but Conor doesn’t seem to care — all he sees is EASY MONEY! 

Remember, McGregor made $ 100 million to box Floyd — but LOST when the fight was stopped in the 10th round. 

McGregor then made around $ 50 mil to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov … but tapped out in the 4th after getting mauled by the Dagestani. 

So, a couple mil to beat up on a tomato can? Nice work if you can get it! 

Conor McGregor I’M A DAD AGAIN! … Baby #2 Born!

Breaking News

Conor McGregor just left the hospital with his SECOND CHILD — after his girlfriend, Dee Devlin, gave birth to their new baby! 

The UFC superstar posted a photo with the new baby and his older boy, Conor Jr., with the caption, “Heading home with my two healthy babies and an energized and healthy SuperMam.”

He added, “2019 is off to the best start! Thank you for the well wishes everybody!”

No word on the name or the sex of the newest McGregor family member. We’ll update as soon as we find out. 

McGregor’s celebrity friends are already reaching out — The Rock posted a message saying, “Ohana! Congrats brother!!”

Hopefully, Conor had a driver waiting for him outside of the hospital because his driver’s license is still suspended in Ireland stemming from a 2017 traffic stop.

As we previously reported, McGregor pled guilty in November to going 95 in a 60 in a blue Range Rover. His license was suspended for 6 months and he was hit with a $ 1,100 fine.

Conor’s oldest child, Conor Jr., was born on May 5, 2017 — a few months before Conor Sr. got in the boxing ring and fought Floyd Mayweather

Conor obviously lost that bout — but reportedly made around $ 100 MILLION

Conor Sr. is already training his little boy how to fight — recently posting footage of Conor Jr. hitting the mitts. 

Dana White Conor And Khabib … Rematch Should Happen In 2019

EXCLUSIVE

The Conor McGregorKhabib rematch WILL go down in 2019 — so says Dana White … who tells TMZ Sports it’ll happen as long as everything goes according to plan.

The UFC honcho popped by the TMZ offices last week … and told us there are still some hurdles to clear — but he thinks Khabib-Conor II will get set sometime in the next 12 months.

“As long as everything goes right, this fight should happen.”

Of course, Khabib and Conor are still facing suspensions for their roles in the brawl that broke out at UFC 229 … and guys like Tony Ferguson and even Max Holloway could get shots at Khabib before Conor does.

But, Dana says if everything lines up the way he thinks it will … the rematch will happen.

Khabib dominated Conor at UFC 229 on Oct 6 — forcing the Irishman to tap out in the 4th round. 

After the fight, Conor gave a round-by-round breakdown explaining why he lost the fight — but gave credit to Khabib and vowed to return “with my confidence high.”

“If it is not the rematch right away, no problem,” Conor said back in October … “I will face the next in line. It’s all me always, anyway. See you soon, my fighting fans, I love you all.”

Jon Jones Wants Conor vs. Khabib Rematch … ‘That was a Great Fight’

EXCLUSIVE

Jon Jones wants to see Conor McGregor get another crack at Khabib — telling TMZ Sports he LOVED the first fight … and really hopes Dana White locks ’em both in for a rematch. 

“I would love to see that again,” Jones said after the UFC 232 press conference … “That was a great fight.”

Of course, Khabib dominated Conor during the Oct. 6 bout at UFC 229 … ultimately submitting the Irishman in the 4th round. 

But, Jones believes one fight shouldn’t define an athlete — and he’s confident McGregor still has the skills to compete with the best in the world. 

“Wins and losses happen when you’re fighting at the level that guys like Conor and I are fighting at … it happens and it’s a big part of the game but its not a race.”

“As a martial artist, one fight never defines an athlete. It’s a journey. It’s about how you finish the race.”

Despite his excitement, Jon says he thinks Conor should probably fight someone else before rushing back after Khabib … but ultimately, they’re on a collision course.

Jermell Charlo I Wanna Fight Conor McGregor … Boxing Or MMA!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Jermell Charlo says he’s down to fight Conor McGregor for his next big scrap … and tells TMZ Sports it can be boxing OR MMA!!!

“We always on standby,” Charlo says … “Especially for an MMA fight. Why not?!”

Of course … Conor’s next opponent IS up in the air after he got mauled by Khabib in October — and Charlo’s also lookin’ for a fight after he takes on Tony Harrison Saturday night. 

So, could it happen? Maybe … especially ’cause Charlo seems down to sweeten the pot by steppin’ out of the ring and into the Octagon.

“It’s wherever he want to fight. Conor’s a grown man. He knows what to do. And, he knows who to call!”

In the meantime … Charlo’s tilt with Harrison on Saturday at Barclays Center is expected to be one of the biggest of the twin’s career — and he gave us a prediction for how it’ll all go down!!!

Conor McGregor Dolly Attack was Giant Publicity Stunt … Lawsuit Claims

EXCLUSIVE

UFC fighter Michael Chiesa claims Conor McGregor‘s steel dolly attack was a publicity stunt intended to hype his fight with Khabib … and now he wants ALL of Conor’s UFC 229 profits. 

Long story short … Chiesa (who was injured in the bus attack) claims NY law bars people from profiting from criminal activity and requires them to turn over ill-gotten gains to their victims. It’s called the Son of Sam law.

In new court docs filed by Chiesa, the UFC fighter argues the April 5 dolly incident drove up interest in UFC 229 and boosted sales of Conor’s Proper 12 whiskey brand, so all profits should be handed over.

It’s not a small number — Conor publicly stated he expected to make $ 50 MILLION for the Oct. 6 fight against Khabib … plus MILLIONS more from the sales of Proper 12. 

Here’s how Chiesa spells it out in his lawsuit … 

“By his own admission, [McGregor] engaged in the aforementioned conduct and acts with the premeditated intent and purpose of inflicting severe personal injuries and/or murdering Nurmagomedov, and sought to promote his brand and profit from his criminal activity.”

He also cited Conor’s UFC 229 press conference … when McGregor reflected on the bus incident and said Khabib would be “dead” if he had stepped off that bus that day. 

Chiesa was a passenger on the bus and suffered cuts to his face when he was stuck by shattered glass. 

Chiesa claims he was unable to compete in his scheduled fight against Anthony Pettis at UFC 223 that weekend — and lost an even BIGGER opportunity to fight Khabib when Max Holloway pulled out of the main event. 

In his docs, Chiesa claims the UFC had reached out to him about filling in for Holloway in the title match at UFC 223, but Chiesa says his injuries prevented him from taking the fight. 

Chiesa says he suffered from depression following the ordeal — and claims his inability to fight at UFC 223 hurt his overall standing in the UFC. 

Chiesa claims Conor deliberately created “havoc, mayhem and injury” that resulted in his injuries.  

For his part, Conor has previously said Chiesa should NOT be able to sue for intentional infliction of emotional distress because he wasn’t the intended target.
