Khabib’s Manager: ‘Conor’s Lucky We Didn’t Bury Their Bodies’

UFC superstar Conor McGregor made headlines when he and a large entourage allegedly attacked a bus filled with fighters set to compete at UFC 223 on Thursday, April 5. Now Khabib Nurmagomedov’s manager Ali Abdelaziz has come forward with a statement over the matter.

Multiple fighters were injured in the attack, forcing Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg off of their respective UFC 223 bouts. McGregor would later be charged with three counts of misdemeanor assault and a felony charge of criminal mischief.

The attack was allegedly a retaliation by McGregor in response to Khabib Nurmagomedov’s previous confrontation with SBG Ireland’s Artem Lobov. Nurmagomedov was on the bus during the recent fracas, but did not suffer any injuries.

Ali Abdelaziz, manager to Nurmagomedov, was also on the bus during the incident. Speaking on the latest edition of The MMA Hour, Ali Abdelaziz revealed that he believes things would have been much worse if Nurmagomedov’s entire team was on the bus.

“I’ve been around Conor. I’ve never seen him act like this. Something was off. I don’t know if this guy flew in, had to snort a whole bunch of drugs to stay up… it was like he was on f**king something, man.

“It’s easy to beat up a guy like that, because he’s out of control. Can you imagine if Khabib’s team was on the bus? We’d be burying some bodies today. Some bodies would have been buried. I’m not joking, man.”
