Manager says Justin Gaethje would ‘slaughter’ Conor McGregor

With Khabib Nurmagomedov, Dustin Poirier, Donald Cerrone, Tony Ferguson, Nate Diaz and Max Holloway all currently booked, there aren’t a lot of viable opponents left for former UFC lightweight and featherweight champ Conor McGregor. One option that is still available, however, is former World Series of Fighting lightweight king Justin Gaethje.

While a the idea of a McGregor vs. Justin Gaethje fight is likely to excite many fans, Gaethje’s manager Ali Abdelaziz does not believe the fight would be competitive. He believes his client would dominate the Irishman, and used all kinds of creative metaphors to describe the color of McGregor’s flesh after a potential meeting with Gaethje.

“If Justin Gaethje will fight Conor McGregor, it’s like slaughtering a pig, and he’s going to squeal, and he’s going to be all red and blue on Monday night,” Abdelaziz told MMA Junkie recently. “His legs will be like a rainbow color. His face would be like a watermelon, black and red,” he added. “We’ll give this white boy some color. We’ll give him a bloody tan. Justin Gaethje would eat his heart alive.

“Justin Gaethje – I’ve been kicked by a lot of guys; when he kicks you, his kick touches your heart, your intestines, your butthole,” Abdelaziz added. “Everything hurts.”

Conor McGregor: Instagram Model?

The MMA manager had plenty more to say, claiming that, at this stage, the long absent Conor mcGregor is more of an Instagram model than a fighter.

“Conor McGregor is an Instagram model,” Abdelaziz said. “Conor McGregor, he just wants attention. He goes to the gym everyday, and they give him a spray bottle to make him look sweaty. But we know this guy doesn’t really train hard, because if you train hard, you can’t be losing. He hasn’t won a fight since 1996.”
