Ali Abdelaziz is the agent for Nurmagomedov and he claims that the former two division UFC champion would be safer in jail instead of fighting the UFC Lightweight Champion.

“There’s no more talking,” Abdelaziz told MMA Fighting. “This is the Khabib show now. To be honest, the way I feel about it, Conor would be much safer in jail. If this fight happens, the person who would execute the community service is Khabib by giving this ass whooping for the people.”

There has been no comment from McGregor or anybody from his camp at this time about the fighters next move.
