Conor McGregor brutally trolled by Floyd Mayweather as LW title statement is made

Conor McGregor is still the UFC lightweight champion

Conor McGregor hasn’t been relieved of his lightweight title, according to Khabib Nurmagomedov’s manager Ali Abdelaziz.

“Let me explain to you what’s going on here. I told you this and I’m going to repeat myself again for the last time. Because you’re an instigator on this one, you are. Let me explain to you,” he told MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani during an appearance on The MMA Hour.

“One of the things, when the UFC come to me and asked for Khabib to fight for the title.

“I said, ‘Okay, I don’t want Tony Ferguson to become the official champion the same way Conor did.’

“Because I know Tony and Conor have got the same manager. And I’m not going to put a chance that somebody plays games with me. I’m way smarter than people think.

“What I said was, ‘The night of the fight, April 7, to be for the official title.’ 

“If Tony Ferguson gets injured, Khabib still fights for the title against Gatheje, Poirier, whatever. 

“But if I demanded that I want Conor to be stripped, then who is going be the champion? Tony Ferguson.”

Conor McGregor’s coach hails performance in Floyd Mayweather fight

McGregor’s striking coach Owen Roddy has revealed he was thoroughly impressed by his student’s performance against Mayweather.

“The last five he was walking Conor down and trying to get Conor to punch himself out,” . “That was very smart as well. But Conor, in general, I thought he was amazing. 

“To go in and fight in a different sport for the first time, to fight the greatest fighter of the present day, to fight him in his backyard and to go ten rounds and to land more strikes than anybody else, that’s a testament to Conor and his ability. 

“I just think if we had more time, a longer camp, he could get used to those 12 rounds quickly. 

“Also, boxers would say rounds eight to twelve is where you’re going to win it. And that’s where we noticed a little difference. 

“The first eight, Conor was unbelievable. It was early on in the tenth when Floyd really took control.”
