Conor McGregor accuses Khabib Nurmagomedov’s manager of being a terrorist

The pair were due to hold a final news conference on Thursday ahead of their UFC 229 showdown in Las Vegas this weekend, but McGregor did not turn up for the scheduled start of 3pm local time.

"Conor's not here yet and Khabib said he's not going to wait", White said after rushing out after Nurmagomedov.

"I don't think about him", Nurmagomedov said when asked about McGregor's tardiness. "I did not plan on this". If this fight was taking place shortly after UFC 205, I would favor McGregor.

McGregor had previously targeted Abdelaziz during a UFC 299 promotional event last month in NY, yelling, "You terrorist snitch!" at the Egypt native.

"I don't care, he can call me anything - I don't give a [expletive]", replied Abdelaziz, who also has several other MMA fighters, including Frankie Edgar, Cody Garbrandt and Fabricio Werdum, in the stable at his management company, Dominance.

The brash Irish superstar will be returning for arguably his greatest challenge to date in the form of undefeated current UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

"Why I have to think about him?" While McGregor has shown a genius-level ability to fight against type, even with the right game plan, I'm not sure he can train his defensive wrestling hard enough to make up the difference against Nurmagomedov. "He's a rat bastard, and I'm going to get him on Saturday night".


"He knows what he signed up for, it is what it is", McGregor said. I'm only a few minutes late.

Taking on the powerful champion from Dagestan in his comeback fight represents a colossal gamble by McGregor.

There's not much else that needs to be said at this point. We saw the staredown in NY (at last month's press conference), I want to see the staredown (on Friday).

McGregor is set to end a near two-year hiatus from the octagon at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night against the person who succeeded him as UFC lightweight champion.

While many fans will justly point to Chad Mendes' short training camp for the loss, there is no question that Conor McGregor proved that he is capable of fighting through adversity in his bout with "Money". Given McGregor's long layoff and Nurmagomedov's recent form, I have to favor the Russian here. With the championship fight now just days away, Khabib is still predicted to retain but his odds have dropped to -160, while Conor is now a +150 underdog.

His ability to defy the odds, along with his brash personality has made Conor McGregor a household name.

"F-- peace, there will never be peace here", McGregor said. I always say you should aim for peace but if you can't aim for peace, aim between the eyes. "My job when I go to the cage is to control my emotions. Never, ever, ever, over". Add in that those fights were the two biggest in the UFC's pay-per-view history and among the best fights of 2016, and even when McGregor loses, he wins.
