Former UFC multi-division champion Conor McGregor is currently awaiting his next court date, as the fighter is facing misdemeanor and felony charges following the alleged attack of a bus filled with UFC fighters. Following rumors that a title fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and “Notorious” is being considered, manager Ali Abdelaziz has come forward with a statement.
McGregor allegedly lead a large entourage down inside a loading dock within Brooklyn, New York’s Barclays Center on Thursday, April 5, to attack a bus filled with red corner fighters for UFC 223. Among them, Khabib Nurmagomedov was the reported target, as “The Eagle” had an altercation with McGregor’s teammate Artem Lobov days earlier.
Nurmagomedov is the new reigning UFC lightweight champion and is seemingly the next big fight for “Notorious.” Taking to Twitter, Nurmagomedov’s manager Ali Abdelaziz has decided to claim McGregor’s loss to Nate Diaz at UFC 196 and his loss to Floyd Mayweather inside the boxing ring as the reason that “Notorious” is not ready to face Nurmagomedov.
“Let’s make this clear the guy is 2-2 in his last 4 fights. What do you have to gain but money? BIG DRAMA SHOW Khabib doesn’t think he deserves it”
