Conor McGregor

The manager for UFC champion Islam Makhachev made some incredible claims regarding Conor McGregor recently.

Ali Abdelaziz, making his first appearance on Submission Radio, admitted that a bout between Makhachev and McGregor is intriguing. For now, “Notorious” remains set to battle Michael Chandler later this month at UFC 303.

“Conor might go there and knock out Chandler in the first round,” Abdelaziz said. “After that, he’s one of the biggest stars in the sport. Like him or hate him, he is. And if he tells the UFC, ‘Hey, I want a title shot, Islam I want a title shot’.

“That can be the next title shot. Islam’s not gonna say no to this fight. It’s a big fight, it’s a big name, it’s a lot more money.”

He added that UFC president Dana White “likes money and he likes business.”
