Ali Abdel-Aziz, the manager for Frankie Edgar, and Mark Henry, Edgar’s coach, responded to comments made by UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor earlier this week.

And as you might have expected, Abdel-Aziz and Henry took “Notorious” to town.

“Let me tell you about Conor,” Abdel-Aziz said in an interview with TMZ Sports. “He’s a prostitute used to make high-dollar money but got old and nobody wanted anymore. For three years, he did everything he could to not fight Frankie.”

Abdel-Aziz said McGregor declined a potential fight with Edgar at UFC 189 and has done so multiple other times. McGregor, in a post on Instagram, said he offered to fight Edgar at UFC 222 next week after Max Holloway was injured.

Henry, the striking coach for Edgar, used social media to get his point across.

“When you bring up (Edgar) name that’s the perfect picture for you (McGregor). You ducked him 3 times in the past, FE and his manager (Abdel-Aziz) asked for Conor’s name specifically when Max went down (but we knew you only take stylistically what is a good match for you and you ducked him 3x already) it’s bad enough of crappy posts putting people down when you have never defended a title cut lines to titles and 90 % of the time fight people in your comfort zone,” Henry wrote. “I agree Connor is an AMAZING AMAZING fighter and has transcended the game with his accent, personality, wit, incredible fighting style and power ( which beat a great and one of my own guys) intelligence and don’t forget trashing people some of the BEST standup I’ve ever seen in mma and I really thought had a chance first 2 rds to bear mayweather. But to constantly sit on the sideline and talk about a man who always wants to fight and always and only the BEST guys, a man the UFC always trys to side track FE weather Mendes (they were trying to protect you) or Yair or another young killer. A fighter who should be at 35 but fights his whole career heavier and doesn’t cry about someone being bigger like you constantly did with a 55er.

“A fighter who doesn’t make excuses when he losses like size or cheesecake he just takes it like a man and gives credit when is due. A fighter who even though gives up height range weight his entire career has never quit or been stopped. Last time I checked that’s 4 for you now buddy. You will NEVER EVER have the heart of Frankie or integrity. It’s soo soo simple if your dog crap post is true fight Frankie next. Weather it be mma or boxing. (And I promise you he won’t hammer fist on top your head he knows the rules). But YOU WON’T!”

I put my name forward to step in at UFC 222 to face Frankie Edgar when Max Holloway pulled out, but I was told there wasn't enough time to generate the money that the UFC would need. I was excited about bouncing in last minute and taking out the final featherweight, without all the rest of the stuff that comes with this game. Please respe
