This has lead rise to a lot of hate for the Irishman since his loss on July 10. One person who has fired back at ‘The Notorious’ is Ali Abdelaziz. In a recent interview with MMA junkie, Ali Abdelaziz had some harsh words to say for ‘The Notorious’. “Who wanna be the son of this kid? Nobody wants to be the son of someone like him. But in reality, f**k him. I don’t really care about him, you know? Listen, he is easy money. I hope he is healthy.”

Abdelaziz continued, “He can come back and fight Gaethje or Islam, Beneil, and he is an easy payday for everybody. He’s become like I said he’s a pro****ute. Guys use him right now for hype. That’s it because he’s easy money. He cannot beat anybody in the top 10 or top 15. He cannot compete with these guys anymore. He cannot.”

Conor McGregor cannot beat top 15 ranked fighters?

Abdelaziz is certain that Conor McGregor has lost his touch and can’t compete with the top 15 fighters on the roster. He also termed the former double champ as “easy money” as he feels fellow fighters fight McGregor only to get some hype behind their names.
