Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Manager Reacts To Conor McGregor Snubbing A Fight With Tony Ferguson

Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Manager Reacts To Conor McGregor Snubbing A Fight With Tony Ferguson

Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager has once again hit out at Conor McGregor for snubbing a potential mega-fight with UFC star Tony Ferguson.

McGregor, 31, grabbed headlines worldwide last weekend when he announced his third MMA retirement in the space of four years.

And the Irish superstar later revealed his disappointment at UFC not booking himself against Justin Gaethje for the interim UFC lightweight championship.

Ali Abdelaziz, 42, took to social media and called out McGregor for wanting an "easy fight" outside of a title fight.

Khabib's manager tweeted: "Yes because he want only easy fight outside title fight."

The 42-year-old Egyptian fired out brutal shots at the UFC Hall of Famer for not stepping up to fight Ferguson ahead of Gaethje.

White, who has already shared his thoughts on McGregor's retirement, opened up about his conversation with the 'Notorious' after Khabib was unable to face Ferguson.

"He wants to fight [Justin] Gaethje. Gaethje just won to get the fight with Khabib [Nurmagomedov]," the UFC chief told ESPN.

"He just beat Tony Ferguson. Conor had the opportunity to slide into that spot if Khabib or Tony fell out.

"He came back and said, 'I'm not a replacement fighter, I'm not going to do it.' He would be in that position now if he took the fight. He didn't, Gaethje did so Gaethje gets it."

McGregor's trainer, John Kavanagh, has dropped a teasing hint that the Irishman could make a U-turn on his MMA retirement.
