After Kamaru Usman took the liberty of paraphrasing one of Conor McGregor’s famous quotes, the Irishman went ahead and reacted to the same on social media.
While you’re at it, Conor McGregor called Kamaru Usman a ‘jacka **’, which obviously did not please the manager of the latter, Ali Abdelaziz.
“Conor McGregor is the biggest shit bastard in the sport. Kamaru Usman is a great dad, he’s a great husband. He’s no jacka **. If you have a problem with him, fight the man, No? But we know, Conor doesn’t have the balls, has nothing. He’s not man enough to fight something like Kamaru Usman. He’s not even man enough to look him in the face. he looks it in his face, he’s probably going to say “Hello, how are you, how are you sir?” Because it’s like a grown man fighting a little girl, right? “
“The internet makes a lot of heroes. Anyone can talk shit, but realistically, if you put these two guys in a cage, in a street fight, in the trunk of the car, in a jail cell, that Who is Daddy? Kamaru Usman will be Conor’s daddy every day of the week. “
Ali Abdelaziz: Conor McGregor is not my problem
As manager and close friend of Khabib Nurmagomedov, Ali Abdelaziz has been involved in back and forth with Conor McGregor for the past few years. However, he feels indifferent to the Irishman, although he credits him with being a big star in the promotion.
“I’m not worried about Conor. Conor isn’t my problem. To me he’s a star. I’m not going to take that away from him. But he’s irrelevant as a contender in his prime. He’s not in his prime anymore, no “He’s just a guy who generates a lot of hype and a lot of money for the UFC and I respect that.”
Compared to welterweight champion Conor McGregor next opponent Jorge Masvidal is a “bigger guy” with “a lot of experience”, but Kamaru Usman is going to “crack his mouth” anyway, said Ali Abdelaziz.
Ali Abdelaziz also pointed out how rare it is for the UFC champions to defend their titles twice in the span of six weeks, and Kamaru Usman is the only one to do so. It is therefore high time to start “to put a little respect in the name of the man”, affirmed Abdelaziz, and rightly so.
