Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Manager Ruthlessly Slates Conor McGregor Over MMA Retirement Claim

Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Manager Ruthlessly Slates Conor McGregor Over MMA Retirement Claim

Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager has fired out a brutal shot at "b***h a*s" Conor McGregor by calling him out for not facing Tony Ferguson.

McGregor, 31, on Sunday took to social media and announced his third MMA retirement in the space of four years.

And Ali Abdelaziz, 42, has pulled no punches towards the Irish UFC superstar as he insisted that he has been 'hiding from Ferguson for years.'

He continued by telling McGregor to sit his "b***h a*s" down and "watch the two best fighters in the world [Khabib and Justin Gaethje] fight."

Abdelaziz tweeted: "You should've stepped in and fought [Tony] Ferguson. You've been hiding from him, for years.

"[Gaethje] stepped in, and got the job done. Now your b***h a*s needs to sit down and watch the two best fighters in the world fight."

The 'Highlight' now has the chance to face McGregor's fierce rival, Khabib, for the lightweight championship down the line.

But the 'Notorious' expressed his disappointment at UFC not booking himself against Gaethje for the interim lightweight strap.

"The game just does not excite me, and that's that," McGregor told ESPN.

"All this waiting around. There's nothing happening. I'm going through opponent options, and there's nothing really there at the minute. There's nothing that's exciting me.

"They should have just kept the ball rolling. I mean, why are they pushing [Khabib vs Gaethje] back to September?

"You know what's going to happen in September, something else is going to happen in September, and that's not going to happen. I laid out a plan and a method that was the right move, the right methods to go with.

"And they always want to baulk at that and not make it happen or just drag it on. Whatever I say, they want to go against it to show some kind of power. They should have just done the fight -- me and Justin for the interim title -- and just kept the ball rolling."
