UFC manager Mike Kogan might be in some hot water after dropping the N-bomb in a tweet about UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo

Kogan apparently believes "Scarface" has recently flip-flopped on the issue of fighter pay and didn't mind using some strong language to get his opinion across on Twitter:

Furthermore, Kogan defended the tweet, since Bellator contender Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal is a client of his:

During last week's appearance on AXS TV's Inside MMA, Aldo said he was "not entirely happy with the current pay policy" of the UFC. 

In his last Octagon appearance at UFC 169 in February, a decisive win over Ricardo Lamas, Aldo earned $120,000 to show and $120,000 to win, according to MMA Manifesto

Aldo (24-1), whose only career loss occurred at lightweight in November 2005, has won 17 fights in a row including six straight inside the Octagon. 

Meanwhile, Kogan is no stranger to controversy, as one of his clients, ex-title challenger Nate Diaz, was suspended last May after using a homosexual slur against Bryan Caraway, per MMA Mania

In his next title defense, Aldo is set to rematch Chad "Money" Mendes at UFC 176 in August. Aldo won their first encounter by first-round knockout. 

Should Kogan receive any form of sanctions from the UFC, or is what a manager says or does beyond its jurisdiction?
