Khabib Nurmagomedov's Manager Could Have Ended Conor McGregor With His Latest Tweet
Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager has responded to Conor McGregor's latest Twitter rant and he could have had the last laugh over the Irishman.
McGregor unleashed his tirade on Monday and took no prisoners, with attacks aimed at Khabib as well as Justin Gaethje and Tony Ferguson.
His latest tweet read: "Without me this whole ship sink. Never forget that!"
But Ali Abdelaziz has now responded to McGregor with a clip from UFC 229 and it could be the one thing 'The Notorious' doesn't have an answer for.
Just like that :joy: @TeamKhabib https://t.co/qSx7XFY3cp pic.twitter.com/pjeDX2q6k2

Khabib dominated McGregor back in October 2018 and Abdelaziz shared cageside footage of the lightweight champion laying into the former 'Champ-champ' with a flurry of strikes.
The response comes after McGregor claimed Khabib 'scurried' from the main event of UFC 249 against Tony Ferguson like a 'hiding rat as usual'.
Khabib you absolute embarrassment. Scurrying, hiding rat as usual. As I have said many times. As has been seen many times. Through the pane of glass it was confirmed what was always known.- Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) May 11, 2020
"No comment" lol.
An embarrassment to real fighting.
Khabib himself responded to the tweet by telling McGregor to 'not be fake'.
Yes, we remember you, you was so nice that night, be same, don't be fake. pic.twitter.com/SOcLb5jjKX- khabib nurmagomedov (@TeamKhabib) May 11, 2020
In messages which have since been deleted, McGregor then called out Khabib for a photo of the Russian in what seems to be a hot tub.
The message read: "Yes, hug legs. Hug legs and bathe in tiny bathtubs with groups of men, while touching their legs."
A follow-up tweet added: "What the f**k is going on here? How can this country condemn/punish homosexuals, yet lock their children and wives away, and engage solely in this type of activity. Male only. It's quite bizarre."
Khabib then responded to those messages by asking if McGregor was 'tweeting drunk' then signed off with a photo of a downed McGregor with a caption of: "You don't like legs?"
Hug legs? Have you forgot how I knock you down, or you typing tweets drunk? Beat you in striking, parts you up in wrestling, absolutely destroy you in grappling, Made you grab air with your hands, and at the end you gave up. last one, don't forget your words 'it's only business'- khabib nurmagomedov (@TeamKhabib) May 12, 2020
