Conor McGregor was put on blast by Khabib Nurmagomedov’s manager Ali Abdelaziz during today’s episode of The Helwani Show.
The brash fighter manager, Ali, has had a long standing beef with the Irish superstar. If you recall, Conor McGregor went off on Abdelaziz at the UFC 229 pre-fight press conference, calling Ali a “mad rat” and a “terrorist snitch“.

“Shut your mouth! Ali Abdelaziz. Mad terrorist. Terrorist snitch! I know a lot about you as well you mad rat! I know a lot about you as well. You keep your mouth shut kid!”
Conor McGregor did not stop there, as he proceeded to bring up Ali’s family in the form of his purported son Noah.
“How’s Noah? How’s Noah!?!” McGregor screamed at Ali at the UFC 229 pre-fight press conference.
As expected, Ali Abdelaziz did not take well to the rather personal comments made by the Irish star.
The Dominance MMA Management owner went off on Conor McGregor when speaking with ESPN’s Ariel Helwani earlier today.

“I want to punch Conor McGregor across his nose and break his face for talking about my family.” Ali said. “Khabib got his revenge (at UFC 229), but I didn’t!”
Ali then turned his attention to Conor McGregor’s longtime friend and training partner Artem Lobov.
“If Artem Lobov wasn’t Conor McGregor’s friend, he wouldn’t be in the UFC. It’s that simple”.
Abdelaziz acknowledged that Conor McGregor is one hell of a promoter, but followed up that statement by calling the Irishman a prostitute.
“Conor McGregor has changed the game as far as promotion is concerned. But he is still a prostitute.”
Khabib’s manager went on to suggest that “Mystic Mac” would be dead right now if it were not for UFC 229 referee Herb Dean.
“He (Conor) would be dead right now if it were not for Herb Dean. Guys like Floyd (Mayweather) and Conor (McGregor) are not real fighters.”
