Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Manager Hits Out At Conor McGregor Over His Savage Response

Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager has brutally slammed Conor McGregor over the Irishman's ruthless comments towards his client.

Khabib, 31, will make his long-awaited return to the octagon in October when he defends his lightweight championship against Justin Gaethje at UFC 254.

The 'Eagle' wasted no time in sending a direct warning to interim lightweight champ Gaethje, who defeated Tony Ferguson in May, ahead of their clash.

Ali Abdelaziz, who also represents Gaethje, told McGregor to 'sit down' and let his "superiors" fight it out now.

The 42-year-old MMA manager tweeted: "Sit down boy and let your superiors fight. Maybe you get to fight one of them if they let you.

"It's a different time now, it's Khabib Time and Justin Time. You on timeout. Buy the ppv [sic]."

Abdelaziz also tweeted out to UFC president Dana White and called on him to put the 'Notorious' in "timeout."

The undefeated Russian star was scheduled to face fierce rival Ferguson in a hotly anticipated mega-clash at UFC 249 in April.

But Khabib was forced to pull out of the title clash after he was unable to leave his homeland due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The lightweight champ's future has been cast in doubt after his father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, passed away last month as a result of coronavirus complications.

However, Khabib has his sights set on Gaethje before wanting a dream mega-fight with UFC legend Georges St-Pierre in April 2021.
