Khabib’s manager continues to put former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor on blast.

Ali Abdelaziz still has personal issues with McGregor despite the fact that Khabib Nurmagomedov won the fight. The UFC lightweight champion was able to silence McGregor at the UFC 229 pay-per-view event. This is where he submitted McGregor after a dominant performance.

While speaking with ESPN’s Ariel Helwani on his MMA show, Abdelaziz went off on McGregor by stating that if he sees him then he would smack. In fact, he would break his face for talking about his family.

“I want to punch Conor McGregor across his nose and break his face for talking about my family. Khabib got his revenge, but I didn’t.”

This was a fiery rant. At one point, he brought up how he thinks that McGregor’s longtime friend and training partner Artem Lobov should be thankful. Thanking McGregor for keeping him under contract with the UFC.

“If Artem Lobov wasn’t Conor McGregor’s friend, he wouldn’t be in the UFC. It’s that simple.”

This drama all started in the lead up of Khabib vs. McGregor happening at the UFC 229 event. It saw McGregor say some harsh comments about the UFC champion. Although Abdelaziz thinks McGregor is a great promoter, he still sees him as a prostitute despite the fact that he changed the game.

“Conor McGregor has changed the game as far as promotion is concerned. But he is still a prostitute.”

Khabib Nurmagomedov’s manager is appearing to have what’s best for his client in mind when it comes to his next fight. It’s pretty clear if the UFC wants to see their lightweight champion fight again. But big money will have to be put on the line.

The speculation about who he’d fight next has gone wild. Could Khabib be fighting Conor McGregor for the second time? How about a fight with former UFC middleweight and welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre? Might he change things up with a boxing bout with Floyd Mayweather?

Khabib’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz, has stated in a recent interview they will fight anyone but it needs to be for the biggest money bout possible.

“Ben Askren, Woodley, none of these guys can touch Khabib,” Abdelaziz told TMZ Sports (H/T to MMAFighting). “Especially if they’re scared to get tired and these guys, they get tired.”

Abdelaziz made it known that he’s worried about getting big money from the UFC that is around the range of $50M to $100M.

“Now, I’m not even worried about Tyron or Ben Askren, I’m worrying about somebody bringing $50M to $100M to the table and none of these guys can bring $200,000 to the table.”

The reason for this is due to the payday that they got for UFC 229 that saw Khabib submit McGregor. McGregor made $3M in base pay. He was rumored to have pulled in upwards of $50M once getting a percentage of the PPV sales. On the flip side, Khabib got a salary of $2M and will have also received a piece of the PPV money.

“Listen, the guy we just fought said he made $50M,” Abdelaziz said. “I think, as a global superstar, Khabib bypass him. You have a guy meeting with Putin and Erdo?an and the other guy selling liquor on the corner store.”

Khabib Nurmagomedov Looking To Be Paid

For Khabib’s manager, he thinks that Khabib’s job is to get as much money as possible not figure out what’s his next fight.

“At the end of the day, maybe a whole bunch of money gets on the table, maybe the rematch. I don’t know. Maybe we’ll give a rematch to the guy we just killed. . . Whatever’s gonna bring Khabib money. This is now my job. It’s not Khabib’s job. Khabib created legacy, 11 years, 27 fights. Right now, money talks, bulls**t walks. That’s it.”

According to his manager, the UFC champ is rich and could retire right now if he wanted to do so. Thus, they will wait it out until the right fight is presented.

“Khabib can retire now. He’s rich. . . But if somebody’s gonna put big paycheck on the table and we can get it done, I don’t care about number one contender, number ten contender. Khabib was number one contender for five years! Conor jumped him, Eddie jumped him, a lot of people jumped him. Right now, it’s about the paycheck.”

Khabib Nurmagomedov’s manager is claiming to have some big and exciting news on the way involving the UFC lightweight champion. Although his manager claims to have some good news on the way, the status of the fighter is up in the air.

The reason for that is the expectation is that Khabib could be facing a long suspension by the NSAC (Nevada State Athletic Commission) due to his recent actions. Obviously, a rematch between the UFC lightweight champ and Conor McGregor would be a huge fight. That may have to wait.

Last week, the NSAC held a hearing regarding this incident. At the meeting, it was revealed that they would extend the temporary suspensions given to both McGregor and Nurmagomedov.

McGregor and Khabib must face their punishment when they find out actual sanctions from the NSAC later this year. The commission will meet on December 10th where they will decide the fates of the two UFC stars.

Khabib’s manager Ali Abdelaziz took to Twitter on Sunday where he teased that they’ve got some exciting news on the way.

”We will blow your mind,” he wrote on Twitter. “Big news coming @TeamKhabib.”

What that big news remains to be unseen. However, as a result of this teaser, fight fans have speculated about various things. Could Khabib be fighting McGregor for the second time? How about a fight with former UFC middleweight and welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre? Might change things up with a boxing bout with Floyd Mayweather?

Oh, how fun speculating on such a topic can be so much fun. Time will tell what this teaser actually means.

Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Uncle Reveals His Fight & Retirement Plans

These plans do not include a rematch with Conor McGregor.

The post Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Uncle Reveals His Fight & Retirement Plans appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

Khabib Nurmagomedov’s uncle has revealed the plans that the UFC lightweight champion has place regarding his pro-MMA career.

Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Uncle Reveals

Alex Nurmagomedov recently conducted an interview with Russian website Sport Express where he brought up how his nephew has a specific idea of how he wants to end his career. Alex did state that Khabib has already been offered $15 million for a rematch against former UFC lightweight and featherweight champ Conor McGregor.

Tony Ferguson Fight

The only problem with that is Khabib not being interested in this fight. Instead, he wants to fight former interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson to close out his career and call it a day.

“From the start, they offered him 15 million if he agrees,” Alex Nurmagomedov told Sport Express (via Google Translate). “But Khabib said no. Let Conor stand in line, let him fight with others. Khabib wants to fight Ferguson, and then finish his career.”

Potential Timetable

The reason that the UFC champ wants to fight Ferguson is due to the promotion trying to book a few times in the past. Also, it’s because of Ferguson’s TKO win over Anthony Pettis in the UFC 229 co-main event.

“We planned (a Ferguson fight), but it can pass only if Khabib remains in the UFC,” Alex Nurmagomedov told Sport Express. “Many organizations with large prize funds offered him to sign a contract: Bellator, Akhmat, Fight Night. If Khabib remains in the UFC, then in April or May there will be a battle with Ferguson.”

The Bellator Offer

Alex also addressed the big-money offer made by 50 Cent for Khabib to fight under the Bellator MMA banner that is owned by Viacom. At this time, Khabib will only fight for some big bucks which would be for no than $5 million.

“For $2 million (from Bellator), Khabib will not fight. Now he is ready to go into battle for no less than $5 million. In Bellator we were told to name our amount and they are ready to sign a contract. If Khabib leaves UFC, another eight people can leave with him. I can not list them all, but they are powerful, good fighters. I will not yet call their names. The UFC asked Khabib not to hurry, because they have not yet made a final decision.”

Khabib-Conor brawl is still the big talk these days as it’s arguably the biggest news story thus far this year.

The Khabib-Conor Brawl

This massive brawl that was started by Khabib Nurmagomedov at the UFC 229 pay-per-view event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Obviously, this led to chaos breaking out that involved the UFC champ, Conor McGregor, and their respective camps.

Nurmagomedov beat former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor by fourth-round neck crank in the main event. Following the fight, Khabib went flying out of the Octagon and got into a brawl with some of McGregor’s teammates including his training partner Dillon Danis.

New Angle

New footage of the melee is surfacing as the latest video angle gives fans a different look at what exactly happened. It’s safe to say that the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) would like to have access to this footage.

Regarding the footage, we can see three men from Khabib’s side swinging on McGregor inside the Octagon.

Past Videos

The previous videos show Conor taking a swing at one of Khabib’s teammates who were in the process of jumping the cage. This led to chaos breaking out inside of the Octagon.

Aftermath

Once this brawl was tamed, the men were arrested and subsequently released after McGregor decided it was best to not press charges. Now, the UFC lightweight champion and McGregor must go in front of the NSAC in order to find out their punishments going forward.

The UFC went out of their way to have the most security ever for this fight as they knew they might need it. You also have to give credit to the security and police officers on the way that they defused the situation the best they could.

Dana White Confirms NSAC Will Decided If Khabib Will Be Stripped Of UFC Title

White cleared up the speculation regarding Khabib’s status as champion.

The post Dana White Confirms NSAC Will Decided If Khabib Will Be Stripped Of UFC Title appeared first on LowKickMMA.com.

Dana White confirms that the Nevada State Athletic Commission will decide if UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov will be stripped of the title following UFC 229.

Nurmagomedov beat former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor by fourth-round neck crank in the main event of Saturday’s UFC 229 pay-per-view event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Following the fight, Khabib went flying out of the Octagon and got into a brawl with some of McGregor’s teammates including his training partner Dillon Danis. As a result of his actions, the future of the champion is now hanging in the balance and that includes his title.

Dana White Confirms

The UFC President spoke about the incident and one of the questions asked by a media member was if Khabib would be stripped of the title after the said incident. This is when White made it known that the Nevada State Athletic Commission will make the final call.

“No, it’s not 100% (that Khabib won’t be stripped),” White told media members (H/T to Bloody Elbow). “The thing is, we’re regulated by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, or whatever state we’re in. The Nevada State Athletic Commission is gonna go after him, I’m sure pretty hard. He doesn’t have to worry about me right now, he has to worry about Nevada.”

He Went Running

The UFC boss brought up how the governor of Nevada was in attendance for this fight. He was so freaked out by the brawl that he went running out of the building.

“The governor was here tonight. The governor went running out of the building. That’s not good.”

Make It Clear Dana

Finally, White made it perfectly clear that Khabib will likely be stripped of the title if the commission decides to give him a lengthy suspension.

“The Nevada State Athletic Commission is gonna hand down some type of fine, suspension, or whatever’s gonna happen,” White said. “It’s up to them, we’ll see. Listen, if he gets suspended, depends on how long his suspension is, and yeah, he’s probably gonna get stripped if it’s a long suspension.”
