Khabib Nurmagomedov (27-0) successfully defended his UFC lightweight championship against Conor McGregor (21-4) via fourth-round submission in the main event of UFC 229 from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The happiest person who must have been happy other the Khabib Nuramgomedov was probably his manager Ali Abdelaziz. The fight was extremely personal to him as well. Conor McGregor on numerous occasion has called him a ‘terrorist snitch’.
In an Instagram post on Sunday, Abdelaziz took the opportunity to hit back at the defeated McGregor following the Irish man’s loss at the hands of Nurmagomedov.
“I want to congratulate my brother Khabib Nurmagomedov. The undisputed, undefeated pound for pound king. There was never 2 Kings from beginning, only one king. This is not the way we want to celebrate such a dominant performance but when you talk about people’s country, family and religion and intentionally try to kill someone like he said and the cornermen running their mouths after, this is the fight game & sh*t happens. The fans got an amazing fight and a great show. I want apologize to the Nevada athletic commission, the Governor of Nevada and I want to thank Las Vegas police department and security for doing such an unbelievable job. Now everyone understands who’s the amateur here.”
