“Sit Down and Watch”- Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Manager Sends Conor McGregor a Message

Published 06/08/2020, 2:00 AM EDT


Conor McGregor shook the world this Saturday as he announced his retirement from fighting. The Notorious One had stated earlier that he will be looking for a very active season this year. However, it seems that he has changed his mind.

He apparently went ahead with the thought of retirement as there were no good fights coming his way. While it is true that the UFC was unable to make some sensible fights for Conor, the CEO of Dominance MMA Management, Ali Abdelaziz, thinks that it is Conor’s fault that he is not getting fights.

Ali posted a crisp response to McGregor’s Tweet regarding his retirement.

He wrote, “You should’ve stepped in and fought [T]ony Ferguson. You’ve been hiding from him, for years. [Justin Gaethje] stepped in, and got the job done. Now your b**ch a** needs to sit down and watch the two best fighters in the world fight.”

Did Conor McGregor pick the wrong fights?

Ali Abdelaziz believes that Conor McGregor should have stepped in when Khabib Nurmagomedov announced that he will be unable to fight at UFC 249.

Had McGregor done that, he could have had the chance to fight for the Interim title and possibly meet Khabib Nurmagomedov in a rematch. However, travel restrictions and the state of the world did not make sense for McGregor to leave his family for a fight on such short notice. Moreover, travel restrictions at the time were just not flexible. Thus, it would have been impossible for McGregor to reach Florida.

But besides Ali, Justin Gaethje, too, believes that Conor picked the wrong fight. In his comeback fight, Conor took on Donald Cerrone. Yet, Justin believes that a match between him and Conor would have made more sense for both fighters, but Conor picked the “easier” fight in Cerrone.

Gaethje said that Conor could have been in a much better position today, had he fought with him. The fact that Conor retired due to the unavailability of sensible fights does make one ponder whether he should have picked alternative fights.
