Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager, Ali Abdelaziz, has said there is a "0.00" per cent chance the UFC lightweight champion will face Conor McGregor in a rematch.
The Russian is instead targeting a fight with Georges St-Pierre, as Abdelaziz told TMZ Sports (warning: contains profanity):
Nurmagomedov defended his lightweight belt against McGregor in October last year, winning in the fourth round via submission.
McGregor called for a rematch after The Eagle saw off Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 on Saturday:
Abdelaziz said a second fight with the Irishman held no appeal for Nurmagomedov or his camp: "Not interested at all ... for what? We already beat him, we already whooped his ass."
"Conor is like a sour ex-girlfriend; she can't get anybody else," he added. "This is what Conor is. He's irrelevant."
The manager also said McGregor "is not a good person" and referred to a tweet sent by UFC fighter Justin Gaethje that called out The Notorious (warning: contains profanity):
Ahead of last year's clash with Nurmagomedov, McGregor called Abdelaziz a "snitch, terrorist rat."
Abdelaziz added: "He made it this ugly. This is the only thing he can do, promote ugliness."
Nurmagomedov has previously said he has no interest in fighting McGregor again, per ESPN's Brett Okamoto:

At UFC 242 press conference last night, Dana White said if Tony Ferguson refused to fight Khabib (*scratches head*), Conor McGregor would "make sense" to be next. Reminder of what Khabib said to me weeks ago, when I asked what he would do if White called with that fight. https://t.co/x2NUXzVUYR
He wants to fight former middleweight and welterweight champion St-Pierre instead of McGregor or Tony Ferguson, per Abdelaziz: "If Khabib is going to fight for legacy, a fight with Georges St-Pierre would be a huge fight."
The manager also said that such a match-up would generate more interest and be more lucrative than a bout with Ferguson.
St-Pierre has not fought since 2017 and announced his retirement from the sport in February, but Abdelaziz said they could still fight in 2019 or early in 2020.
If St-Pierre won't come out of retirement, a clash with Ferguson would likely hold plenty of appeal with spectators. The 35-year-old (25-3) is on a 12-fight winning streak and briefly held the lightweight belt in 2017 before he was stripped of it due to injury.
