Ali Abdelaziz has taken to Twitter to slam Conor McGregor. McGregor earlier expressed in a deleted tweet to the world that he would be making his return against the lightweight champion. That did not go down well with the ‘super manager’ Ali Abdelaziz. He called out the notorious one on Twitter by matching him up with the top lightweight contenders.
Conor McGregor wants to fight for the lightweight title next. However, that seems like an improbable proposition as McGregor lost his last 2 fights. Dustin Poirier, the guy who beat Conor, is set to face Charles Oliveira for the strap at UFC 269. Following Poirier, there seems to be a lengthy queue to fight for the championship.
The current rankings in the lightweight division have Conor McGregor at No. 9. Dustin Poirier is at No. 1 while Justin Gaethje, Beneil Dariush and Islam Makhachev are at No 2, 3 and 4 respectively. Hence, putting McGregor in a title fight straight away upon his return is a difficult decision. Ali Abdelaziz has pointed that out.
‘He has a chicken heart’- Ali trolls Conor McGregor
Ali started off his rant by posting a fight prediction against Justin Gaethje. According to him, Conor will lose the fight in the second round via TKO inflicted by leg kicks. Ali was referring to the injury that the 32-year old fighter suffered against Poirier. He broke his shin bone in the trilogy fight, and Ali was poking fun at that.

Conor McGregor VS @Justin_Gaethje
2 Round TKO from leg kicks
The 43-year old manager’s second tweet matched up with the 3rd ranked contender in the division. Ali predicted a first-round submission win for Beneil Dariush. Beneil is currently on a 7 fight win streak. He is a master tactician on the ground, and Conor has been found lacking in that department.

1st round submission
The third and final tweet had Conor pitted against Islam Makhachev. Makhachev is the heir to Khabib’s throne. His ground game is just as dangerous as Khabib’s, if not better. Islam has a history with Conor as he was one of the fighters from Khabib’s camp who was involved in the infamous brawl at UFC 229. Ali mocked the Irish fighter by saying that the commission would not approve of the fight against Islam as he had no heart.

This fight won’t get approved by the Athletic Commission because his heart is small now , as a chicken heart
Conor McGregor and Ali Abdelaziz have always butted heads. The two have exchanged heated words since Conor fought Ali’s client, Khabib Nurmagomedov. McGregor was the first one to win a round against Khabib, but he lost the fight eventually as the Dagestani fighter finished Conor by submission.
