Frankie Edgar’s manager tears into Conor McGregor with “big-mouthed leprechaun” insult

He's not happy


Will Conor McGregor be hanging around 145 lbs for one more fight after Jose Aldo?

One person hoping that the Irishman delays his trip up to lightweight is Frankie Edgar’s manager Ali Abdel-Aziz.

Abdel-Aziz didn’t take too kindly to The Notorious writing off his client as being weaker than Chad Mendes on the latest episode of The Ultimate Fighter and he took to Instagram to vent his anger.


Abdel-Aziz posted a picture of former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar with the following caption.

“Hey @thenotoriousmma you big mouthed leprechaun. You said on TUF that Frankie Edgar is weak. The only reason you still haven’t lost in the UFC  is because Dana and Lorenzo made a business decision and made sure you haven’t fought Frankie yet.

“Frankie would smash you on his worst day. When Aldo dropped out you know that they gave you chad instead of Frankie because Frankie is always in shape and would put a hole in your head. They wanted to make more money off of you.

“After Dec 12 you will be irrelevant. I think you are a smart guy but talking shit about Frankie isn’t smart. You might be fighting him soon and the more you talk the more of an ass whooping you will get. I normally don’t talk trash because I respect all fighters but when you talk about my brother you’re gonna get it. Family sticks together.”

We anxiously await McGregor’s response.
