Khabib's Manager Brutally Responds To UFC Planning To Book Rematch With Conor McGregor

Khabib's Manager Brutally Responds To UFC Planning To Book Rematch With Conor McGregor

Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager Ali Abdelaziz has branded Conor McGregor a "scumbag" in response to the UFC planning to book a rematch between them.

McGregor made a triumphant return to the Octagon with a 40 second victory against Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 last month.

UFC president Dana White declared that the Irishman is in line to face Nurmagomedov next should he come out victorious against Tony Ferguson at UFC 249.

But it appears a second bout with McGregor isn't a priority with Nurmagomedov's manager saying the only chance the fight gets made is in the street.

"The only chance this fight could happen is in the street," Abdelaziz told ESPN at UFC 247.

"[McGregor would] have to do something spectacular. He's s**t, you understand? Conor McGregor is one of the biggest stars, because he's one of the biggest scumbags.

"Let's be real. We don't like this guy. We're never gonna like him. Probably every time we see him, there's gonna be problems. He said things about family, things about religion, things about race. He crossed the line. You can't cross the line with [Khabib].

"Conor needs to earn things. He was a champion. He needs to earn things. Khabib really, really wants to make him earn it. It doesn't matter, because what he says. We have a really, really tough fight. Everybody forgets about Tony, dismissing him. Khabib has been training for three months straight and he has two more months.

"Listen, there's a lot of money for Khabib if Khabib fights Conor. But everything is not about money. Especially with Khabib."

Nurmagomedov returns to action on April 18 when he defends his UFC lightweight title against No.1 contender Ferguson in Brooklyn.
