Conor McGregor continues to fan the flames of his rivalry with Khabib Nurmagomedov. Over the past few days, “The Notorious” has been hitting at his rival’s personal life through a series of tweets that were eventually deleted, which did elicit a response from the undefeated champion. The tweets from both men were of such a controversial nature that UFC president Dana White issued a statement regarding them.
Khabib’s manager Ali Abdelaziz also responded to McGregor’s recent tirades by issuing a warning.
“I talked a lot of sh-t to Conor, Khabib talked a bit of sh-t. Conor went in different directions,” Abdelaziz told TMZ Sports (transcript by BJPenn.com). “I’m telling you something, you’re going to get yourself f—ked up, your whole team f—ked up, your security f—ked up. Get your sh-t together before you get everybody f—ked up.
“We don’t promote violence, we are promoting peace,” he added. “Enough with the hate. You want to talk about Khabib’s self, he’s ugly, whatever, this is your opinion. Don’t talk about his f—king wife and his nation and his religion.
“Believe me, if you put Conor and Khabib in the streets to fight to the death, there will be no Conor. Conor will be disappeared.”
For his part, at least, Abdelaziz has shown that he is willing to take matters into his own hands, especially if talking trash goes out of hand.
