MMA manager Ali Abdelaziz has denied that Justin Gaethje is in discussions to fight Conor McGregor this summer, saying that the Irish fighter has already had his chance to take on the hard-hitting lightweight.
This rumor about @Justin_Gaethje fighting vs @TheNotoriousMMA is absolutely false. He had the opportunity to fight him already instead of cowboy but he didn’t. Justin is the number one contender and like khabib said. Conor needs to win 10 fights.
