Khabib Nurmagomedov’s manager held nothing back in giving his take on Conor McGregor’s lengthy UFC 229 post-fight analysis.
Manager Ali Abdelaziz slammed the former two-division champion on an Instagram post on Tuesday, telling McGregor to ‘shut the fu*k up and move on.’
Three weeks have passed since the Irish pride swallowed a nasty submission loss to the undisputed featherweight champion. So when Mcgregor made a wordy round-by-round breakdown of his UFC 229 defeat, the MMA world was taken aback.
What Went Wrong
On his lengthy Instagram post, McGregor admitted that he ‘was beaten fair and square’ after a crucial error in the deciding frame that cost him the fight. He ended the statement assuring his fans to come back fully confident and equipped.
Quoting the former champ-champ he said:
“Although winning the early exchanges in 4, he dips under again and I end up in a bad position with over 3 on the clock. I work to regain position and end up upright, with my back to the fence. A stable position.”
“Here, however, I made a critical error of abandoning my over hook at this crucial time, exposing the back, and I end up beaten fair and square.”
“You’re a Tap Machine”
Abdelaziz does not seem to be in the mood to praise the Dubliner’s round-by-round review of a fight he clearly lost. Taking it to social media, the manager called McGregor a ‘weak soul’ and a ‘tap machine’, responding with his own analysis of the bout.
“God put mercy in Khabibs heart and decided to show the world you’re a tap machine and put on a neck crank that wasn’t even a choke. The proper technique is 2 on 1 try to peel the arm and defend the neck crank. You put your two hands on the ground and your hand only came up when you were ready to tap.”

First of all the champion @khabib_nurmagomedov is too busy enjoying his life and his family and does not give a shit what anyone says but this is my response to this weak soul, him and his sorry ass team already making some stupid ass excuses. 1) When a man gets held against his will and listens to you gasp for air, hopeless on your back how do you win a fight? If this was a street fight you’d be done. You got out grappled and out wrestled, looking like a little child. 2) Second round – the wrestler/grappler out struck you and hit you with a K Bomb and put you on your ass, taken down and hit with missile strikes from the guard and getting smashed in front of your whole family & crew. 3) Khabib stood the whole round with you to make a point that you’re a front runner. If you can knock someone else you give up like you did 5 times in your fighting career. THEN YOU MENTIONED THIS IS ONLY BUSINESS YOU PUT YOUR WHITE FLAG IN THE MIDDLE OF BATTLE 4th round – God put mercy in Khabibs heart and decided to show the world you’re a tap machine and put on a neck crank that wasn’t even a choke. The proper technique is 2 on 1 try to peel the arm and defend the neck crank. You put your two hands on the ground and your hand only came up when you were ready to tap. It’s embarrassing, if you would have beat Khabib. It would have been fair and square you win w no excuses. Now If you can’t make us 100m we know you can’t go fight somebody else because your ass is not getting a rematch. Go open a liquor store and focus on selling alcohol especially after all the shit you talked. Just stfu and move on. @ufc #100mill
Abdelaziz also claimed Khabib’s team isn’t enthusiastic about giving Conor the rematch he’s calling out for.
“If you can’t make us 100m we know you can’t go fight somebody else because your ass is not getting a rematch.”
“Go open a liquor store and focus on selling alcohol especially after all the sh*t you talked. Just STFU and move on.”
