Conor McGregor has been dubbed a “high-end prostitute” ahead of his fight with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.
The management of Khabib Nurmagomedov criticized Irish UFC superstar Conor McGregor ahead of his trilogy match on July 10.
Conor McGregor’s former rival’ management insulted him as the Irishman continued his preparations for his latest UFC major event.
At UFC 264 on July 10 in Las Vegas, McGregor will face off against competitor Dustin Porier in the main event.
With both men having one win over the other and a championship shot at newly-crowned UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira on the line, the stakes for the trilogy bout are high.
However, McGregor’s manager, Khabib Nurmagomedov, a former undisputed UFC lightweight champion, slammed McGregor’s present status in the UFC, saying he has been reduced to the role of an expensive sideshow.
On Mike Tyson’s “Hotboxin'” podcast, Abdelaziz said, “Now you have McGregor fighting Dustin Poirier, presumably McGregor is going to quit again, he’s a quitter.”
“To me, he’s a non-entity. He reminds me of a high-end prostitute. People now want to go out on a date with him to demonstrate that he has a lovely girl with him.
“After that, you may go show the other girls and say, ‘Hey, I have this lovely girl, want to date me?’ ’
“That means fighters battle him and gain prestige as a result of fighting Conor McGregor. They don’t realize, though, that Conor McGregor hasn’t won in three years. He’s a high-stakes fisherman.”
While Abdelaziz’s assessment of McGregor’s fitness is incorrect – he destroyed Donald Cerrone in under 40 seconds at UFC 246 in January 2020 — the Irishman has struggled for form since losing his UFC featherweight and lightweight titles for failing to defend them.
His lone win at 155 pounds occurred at UFC 205 in November 2016, when he defeated Eddie Alvarez for the title, and his two appearances at lightweight since then, against Khabib and Poirier, both resulted in stoppage losses.
McGregor, according to Abdelaziz, is now an afterthought in the division, and will be used as a target for up-and-coming fighters looking to make a name for themselves by facing him. He also predicted that he would return to boxing, where celebrity matchups with the likes of Jake Paul could result in huge paydays without the high-level competition of a top-level UFC fight.
