It goes without saying that the press conference for UFC 229 which featured Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor was wild. Conor launched a series of verbal assault against Khabib, his father, Ramzan Kadyrov, who is the head of the Chechen Republic and last but not least he went ballistics on Khabib Nurmagomedov’s manager Ali Abdelaziz.
Ali Abdelaziz is one of the most powerful managers in MMA right now, apart from managing Khabib, he also manages UFC flyweight champ Henry Cejudo, former bantamweight titleholder Cody Garbrandt, and ex-lightweight champion Frankie Edgar.
After the press conference, when both Khabib and Conor were set to face off, Ali seemed to have passed some remark towards Conor, which didn’t sit very well with him and he unloaded a verbal attack on Abdelaziz.
“Shut your mouth, Ali Abdelaziz,” McGregor said. “You terrorist snitch! I know a lot about you as well, you madman. I know a lot about you as well! You keep your mouth shut kid! How’s Noah? How’s Noah? Yeah, shut your mouth! Never speak about me, ever in your life! Watch yourself around me, ‘cuz you’ll be out of here quick.”
FYI, Noah is the son Ali abandoned in Colorado when he started as an informant for the NYPD and who he is $50k behind in child support for. @TheNotoriousMMA does his homework when preparing for war.
