Nurmagomedov's manager weighs in on possibility of rematch with McGregor
Manager of UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, Ali Abdelaziz, suggested that his client enjoys a far more genuine relationship with UFC boss Dana White than Irish fighter Conor McGregor does.
"The relationship between Khabib and Dana is about respect, is about morals, is about manhood, said Abdelaziz as part of a recent interview with TMZ Sports. "It's not like Conor and Dana's relationship - this is all about money..."
"Khabib all the time says this to me, we don’t really care about Conor," Abdelaziz said. "Somebody might say ‘100 million dollars.’ I don’t think that will persuade Khabib. If Khabib doesn’t wanna fight, I don’t want to pressure Khabib or ask him too much, I let him be. I believe in Dana White. If anyone can get it done, it’s Dana White. These two guys Dana and Khabib, they really love each other, they respect each other, Dana’s really good about getting people to do things."
