Dana White proposed McGregor and Nurmagomedov to feature on a new series of The Ultimate Fighter before facing off against each other in the UFC.
Ali Abdelaziz revealed: "Last week, Dana White called me. And he said, 'Ali, what do you think about Khabib and Conor doing The Ultimate Fighter on ESPN?'
"One, this is breaking news. And I said, 'Man, you know what? I don't know. I'll think about it' and he said, 'Of course, vice versa if Justin wins, right?'
"Khabib vs Conor on The Ultimate Fighter, coach, he would have probably went to the hospital because we'd beat his a**e in front of his whole team. Or Justin Gaethje versus him, right?"
Abdelaziz went onto say that Nurmagomedov slated McGregor and called him "human trash" and "garbage."
He continued: "I talked to Khabib yesterday and he said, 'This man is human trash, he's like garbage.'
"He said, 'When you touch s**t, you smell s**t.' He said, '[McGregor] hasn't earned to fight me. He hasn't earned to fight me.'
"You can f*****g forget about doing The Ultimate Fighter with Khabib.
"It's over. Khabib is like, 'How do you guys ask me? How can I even be in the same room as him? I said Khabib turned it down, he's not going to do The Ultimate Fighter with him any more."
