The past week has been a pretty contentious one for the UFC. In response to Conor McGregor's retirement, Khabib Nurmagomedov likened him to "a jealous wife" and said he'd be back to the UFC before too long. Conor responded by going over the top, direct insulting Khabib's wife and Muslim heritage and then doubling down on it. Things went so far that Dana White said the UFC would be intervening.
Speaking recently. So what are you talking about? "
Speaking recently with Submission Radio, Kovib's manager – Ali Abdelaziz.
"Yeah, I mean, it's an easy fight, "Covington said. "And he's already been asked to fight GSP in between welterweight and lightweight, and I can make a welterweight and lightweight cause. So, it's gonna be more rewarding to smash two of Ali's biggest clients and just leave him crying, dude. He's already emotional. You saw how emotional he was at the last fight. So,
Covington's beef with Abdelaziz stems at a Las Vegas buffet following UFC 235, where Abdelaziz and Usman faced Covington and the manager tried to swing on the professional fighter. Fortunately for Covington, Abelaziz was "slow as a f * cking turtle" and his "cat-like reflexes" allowed him to escape unharmed. Khabib's perfect 27-0 record would not be sweet, so it would be easy.
"Oh man, hey would be my easiest challenge," Covington said. "He's small and he does not even do what I do as good as I do it. He can not wrestle as good as me, he's never faced a high-level Division I All American, a kid who's been wrestling his whole life. That Sambo shit, that shit's weak, man. If wrestling were easy, it would be called Sambo. But it's not, it's called wrestling. "
Back. It's pretty easy to imagine all the Brazilian fans "filthy animals". Following Twitter feud with Khabib Nurmagomedov, Conor McGregor announces his return to the UFC

Sign this up.
The rush by fighters and camps to get into the @UFC is not based on solid statistics. Take your time and develop a full set of tools so you do not end up getting chewed up and spit out by the machine. You'll thank me later on.
