EDDIE HALL is 'scared' of UFC great Khabib Nurmagomedov but sure he will 'knock out' fellow strongman Hafthor Bjornsson in the boxing ring.
Former world's Strongest Man Hall bravely posed with now-retired Khabib.
And alongside that photo on Instagram 'The Beast' wrote: "Two things scare me in life, my dads belt and @khabib_nurmagomedov.”
Hall is battling back from bicep surgery that delayed his fight with 'The Mountain' Bjornsson until next year.
And although he fears unbeaten Russian Khabib, he believes it is Icelander Bjornsson who will be trembling when they meet.
Hall told strongman Luke Fullbrook in a YouTube interview: “I’m very confident. You know how seriously I take things.
“I’m just going to let my fists do the talking. He can say or do whatever he wants… All that matters to me is that he’s getting knocked out.
“I haven’t even started the mental game with Thor and he’s already calling me a bully.
"He better get a grip of himself as it’s going to get a lot worse."
But The Mountain believes his boxing ability is snowballing after three exhibition fights.
And he even sparred with Conor McGregor as he builds up to meeting Hall.
