UFC: Ali Abdelaziz Hits Back At ‘Jealous Prostitute’ Conor McGregor
After Khabib Nurmagomedov was ruled out of the UFC 249 main event against Tony Ferguson, Justin Gaethje was brought in as a replacement. Both ‘The Eagle’ and ‘The Highlight’ are managed my Ali Abdelaziz.
After Khabib pulled out of the Tony fight as a result of travel restrictions put in place in Russia because of the coronavirus pandemic, Conor McGregor took to social media to call the UFC lightweight champion a ‘chicken’. Speaking to TMZ Sports, Abdelaziz hit back at the Irishman. Comparing him to a ‘jealous prostitute.
“It’s crazy because this guy has been telling people to stay home, don’t come outside, he’s donating millions of dollars. Which now we know this s*** is all fake, none of this s*** is real. You’re telling everybody to stay home. Now Khabib, the government of Russia says he can’t travel, you’re going to call him a chicken?
“He doesn’t matter. He’s not number one, he’s not number two, he’s not number three. It’s Khabib, Justin, Tony. He’s number four. He’s not even in the conversation right now. He’s just like a jealous prostitute, she’s got too old for her to make money.”
Before Khabib ruled himself out of UFC 249, McGregor had been campaigning for Ireland to shut down all of its airports during the coronavirus pandemic. Abdelaziz however, claims that Conor didn’t want to fight Ferguson because he knows he would have lost, as he would to Gaethje and Khabib also.
“Why don’t you even jump on a plane and come fight Tony Ferguson? I bet he understands that Tony Ferguson would beat his ass too. All those three guys would beat his ass. Justin, Tony and Khabib.”
Meanwhile, McGregor has taken another shot at Khabib, in a tweet which he later deleted.
With Tony Ferguson vs Justin Gaethje set to headline UFC 249 on April 18th, and the winner expected to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov, who do you think Conor McGregor should fight next?
