When Conor McGregor gets rolling at a press conference, good luck holding him back. McGregor has been out talking plenty of trash ahead of his UFC 229 fight against Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov, and went on a scorched Earth rant at a Vegas press event on Thursday.
During the presser, McGregor turned his sights onto Khabib’s manager Ali Abdelaziz, calling him a ‘terrorist, snitch, rat,’ accusing him of turning FBI informant after allegedly getting caught with fraudulent passports around 9/11, and abandoning his son.
McGregor’s left field rant was apparently referencing past reporting done by MMA journalist Mike Russell:
A source close to the family says Ali Abdelaziz recently tried to clear up his more than $50k in 11 yrs of outstanding back child support by offering to pay his son he ditched in 2006 $10k. The lowball offer came with a caveat that his mother who raised him not get a dime of it.

FYI, Noah is the son Ali abandoned in Colorado when he started as an informant for the NYPD and who he is $50k behind in child support for. @TheNotoriousMMA does his homework when preparing for war.
