Controversial MMA manager Ali Abdelaziz has once again found himself in the cross-hairs of another UFC fighter — and this time, it’s Tony Ferguson.

Abdelaziz, who manages undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, called Ferguson a ‘clown’ on social media and it didn’t take long for ‘El Cucuy’ to his issue his own scathing response.

Ferguson, who is gearing up to fight Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone next month at UFC 238, called Abdelaziz a ‘fake f-ck’ and referred to Nurmagomedov as a ‘fake chump.’

“Ain’t No Clowning Around You Fake Fuck. @AliAbdelaziz00 You Better Leave My Name Out Of Your Mouth Before I Mop The Mat With Your Sorry Ass. You Ain’t Shit W/ Out Your Homeboys Ya Snitch. No Pride, No Guts, Just Like Your Paper Chump @TeamKhabib See You In Person Soon,” Ferguson tweeted late Thursday evening.

Abdelaziz caught wind of Ferguson’s tweet and responded by claiming that Cerrone will beat the former interim lightweight champ at UFC 238.

“Cowboy going to beat him,” Abdelaziz posted.

UFC 238, which is expected to feature Ferguson vs. Cowboy on the main card, takes place next month. June 8 at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The winner will most likely go on to challenge the winner of the proposed lightweight title unification bout between Nurmagomedov and Dustin Poirier.
