The MMA manager reacted back to the champion in the same fashion, saying, “Only God can judge me. Let’s make this money. Soon I’m opening a cell phone shop. Sorry McGregor but it’s not over yet.”

People in comments chimed into the banter, saying it was Ali all along who tweeted from Usman’s handle as well. Some accused him of using McGregor‘s name for no reason. As this may have been the case earlier, it could have been the reason the Irish fighter’s name was part of this tweet.

Per reports, Abdelaziz slapped Danis, and then the latter was ejected from Madison Square Garden.
