CEO of Dominance MMA, Ali Abdelaziz, doesn’t promote violence.
Sure, he tracked down Colby Covington at Palms Casino and threw the first punch in the now-infamous buffet brawl, not long after getting into a fistfight with fans at the PFL 1 event in New York, but let’s not allow trivial things like “facts” to get in the way of his latest peace offering.
One of his top clients, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, is currently feuding with former 155-pound kingpin, Conor McGregor, in what has become a vulgar and somewhat unnecessary Twitter war, one that even has promotion president, Dana White, pumping the brakes.
Blame “Notorious,” according to Abdelaziz.
“I talked a lot of shit to Conor, Khabib talked a little bit of shit,” he told TMZ. “But Conor went to different directions. Man, I’m telling you something, you’re going to get yourself fucked up, your whole team fucked up, your security fucked up. Get your shit together boy, before you get everybody fucked up.”
McGregor recently posted a photo of Nurmagomedov and his wife, calling her a “towel” in reference to her religious covering. That prompted “The Eagle” to fire back with accusations that “Notorious” is a rapist, in reference to recent sexual assault allegations in Ireland.
“We don’t promote violence, we are promoting peace,” Abdelaziz insisted. “Enough with the hate. You want to talk about Khabib’s self, he’s ugly, whatever, this is your opinion. Don’t talk about his fucking wife, his kids, his nation and his religion. Believe me, if you put Conor and Khabib in the streets to fight to the death, there will be no Conor. Conor will disappear.”
Fighting outside the cage is nothing new for Nurmagomedov, or many other fighters, for that matter. But there is a lot more at stake as lightweight champion in 2019 than when “The Eagle” was a budding contender back in 2015.
After getting spanked by White and Co., McGregor attempted to put an end to the hate with a call for unity (read it here).
Abdelaziz was quick to respond.
“Good man, now get your bitch ass to wrestling class because you suck and maybe you can get a win and beg for a rematch.”
