Tyron Woodley says UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov scares the living hell outta him ... and he ain't too happy his TMZ co-host's trying to play matchmaker with 'em.
On this week's episode of "The Hollywood Beatdown" -- the UFC welterweight champ reveals his very real fear of Khabib ... who absolutely mauled Edson Barboza at UFC 219.
So once Tyron found out we asked Khabib about a potential throw-down, his reaction was pretty much what you'd expect.
"Why you gonna stick this maniac on me?! Don't try to throw me in there with a dude who's fighting bears!!!"
That's not a joke. A young Khabib REALLY WRESTLED BEARS.
Also on the Beatdown, Woodley reveals a huge NFL star he's bringing to the big screen ... and explains why Logan Paul should get smacked.
