During last month’s UFC 229 press conference in New York, Conor McGregor referenced Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Manager Ali Abdelaziz being a terrorist snitch when he shouted out Ali’s son Noah during his faceoff with Khabib.
Shut your fucking mouth, Ali Abdelaziz, mad terrorist. Terrorist snitch, I know a lot about you as well. You keep your mouth shut. How’s Noah? How’s Noah
Apparently McGregor referenced veteran journalist Mike Russell’s reports on Abdelaziz.
According to Russell, “Noah” is Abdelaziz’s son who he allegedly left behind when he became an FBI informant.
During today’s press conference in Las Vegas McGregor went into a bit more detail on Ali Abdelaziz’s history of being a “terrorist snitch”
His manager is a fucking snitch terrorist rat. I can go into heavy detail… and I will go into heavy detail. He was pulled off of a flight going from Cairo, Egypt to New York City on September 11th, 2001. He was caught with five passports in his possession. He turned informant and turned on the people he was working with. I don’t even know how that man is in this fucking country. All these Irish people are facing immigration stuff on the way over, my own people are facing it, my family is getting stopped at the airport and then you have this man with such a crazy background Ali Abdelaziz and he’s walking around free. It begs belief to be honest. Don’t take information from an informant and that’s what he’s doing. He’s a rat bastard and I’m going to get him.
