Khabib Nurmagomedov ’s manager Ali Abdelaziz has taken to social media to shut down Conor McGregor following his latest tirade on Twitter.
McGregor is set to return to the Octagon for a rematch with Dustin Poirier at UFC 257, which is taking place on Dana White’s Fight Island next month.
After last competing up at welterweight, the Irishman is returning to lightweight for a second showdown with Poirier, whom he got the better of back in 2014.
He is determined to claim victory and secure another rematch with Khabib, having slumped to the fourth defeat of his MMA career when he locked horns with the Russian in 2018.
McGregor has made a habit of goading his bitter rival on Twitter since their ill-tempered bout, which ended with Khabib leaping out of the Octagon and attacking his jiu-jitsu coach Dillon Dannis after making him tap out.
And after firing more shots at Khabib in a series of tweets which have since been deleted, the Notorious was subsequently called out by his manager.

“You said to Khabib in the cage only business,” Abdelaziz replied to McGregor on Twitter.
“Go get an IV and sober up because we know you drunk or high”.
He then added: “Are you feeling lonely tonight”.

Abdelaziz also posted a mock-up photo of a nine-year-old McGregor holding a teddy bear, alongside a real picture that shows Khabib wrestling with a real bear in his native Russia.
While Khabib’s manager has subjected him to an online assault, McGregor has been warned he faces a real altercation should he come across Khamzat Chimaev at Fight Island.

Chimaev, who is also managed by Abdelaziz and has previously flown to Dublin in search of McGregor before being detained at an airport, has urged the UFC to hide their superstar.
“If I see him on Fight Island, something will definitely happen,” he said. “The UFC needs to hide him.”
