The war of words between Conor McGregor and Ali Abdelaziz has continued after rumors ran rife of a fight between Justin Gaethje and ‘The Notorious’. Conor publicly called out Gaethje on twitter, after he defeated Tony Ferguson at UFC 249. However, given that Gaethje is the interim champion, he’s set to face Khabib Nurmagomedov next.

“I am going to F****** butcher you” – Conor McGregor

“Justin, there is no danger in a man that hugs legs, we all know. Try and dance around what the real threat is here all you want. I am going to f****** butcher you. Your teeth. I’m going to put them on a f****** necklace. Speak on my skills as a father?
You are f****** dead” 

McGregor is set to be eyeing a return in July, however, a bout with Justin Gaethje is highly unlikely. ‘The Notorious’ fired shots at manager Ali Abdelaziz, however, Khabib’s manager was quick to fire back at the criticism.

“He had his chance for that, and he picked Cowboy in January. He picked the easier fight. The two kings of the division are going to fight in Khabib and Justin. Conor can be the co-main event,” said Abdelaziz to ESPN
