Khabib Nurmagomedov’s manager Ali Abdelaziz has zero interest in having his client fight Conor McGregor again.

Ever since Khabib beat the Irish-born star at UFC 229, there has been constant chatter about when they’d fight again. The noise only got cranked up after McGregor tweeted about a rematch following Khabib’s weekend victory over Dustin Poirier. (SLIDESHOW: These UFC Women Really Hate Wearing Clothes)

“He’s irrelevant…We already beat him, we already whooped his ass,” Abdelaziz told TMZ in a video posted on Wednesday when talking about not being interested in fighting McGregor again. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Greatest Ronda Rousey Photos On The Internet)

No matter what Khabib’s people say, I’ll be absolutely shocked if a rematch doesn’t happen. The fight game is all about money. That’s just a fact.

Dana White can convince just about anybody to fight for the right price. I find it hard to believe Khabib won’t get into the octagon against McGregor if the money is right.

A rematch is going to cause money to rain down from the sky.

Good luck convincing UFC fans the chances of a rematch are officially at zero percent. I’m not buying it at all. Not even a little bit.

Khabib and McGregor will fight again. After the fireworks of UFC 229, I refuse to believe otherwise.

Bank on it, folks. It’s going to happen.
