A longtime rival of McGregor (22-6 MMA, 10-4 UFC) by his end association to outmoded UFC gentle-weight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, the Dominance MMA Administration CEO has lengthy even handed the Irishman as “wicked” – a note his fighter Nurmagomedov feeble Saturday after the wrestle.
With the draw issues performed out Saturday within the aftermath of McGregor’s trilogy wrestle loss to Dustin Poirier, Abdelaziz thinks his concept became additional vindicated.
“He’s his have manager; he’s his have trainer; he’s the head coach; he’s every thing,” Abdelaziz suggested MMA Junkie at a minute media gathering Monday. “Must you have an total bunch of ‘certain’ folks around you, he’s no longer evolving his sport. On the cease of the day, appropriate always defeats wicked. He’s an wicked human being. He cans ay whatever he needs. Needless to assert, I don’t worship the fellow. However if he does one thing appropriate, I’ll give him credit ranking. How will you threaten to murder Dustin Poirier’s significant other?”
If he became accountable, Abdelaziz acknowledged McGregor would receive a seven-resolve stunning for his feedback put up-wrestle. Abdelaziz also indicated these surrounding McGregor are partly responsible.
“If I became Dana White, I would stunning this man $1 million,” Abdelaziz acknowledged. “Dana would possibly possibly well possibly aloof have guidelines. I know Dana acknowledged, ‘We are asserting point out issues to 1 one more.’ Are you able to imagine if somebody (acknowledged this) about Dana’s significant other? I know Dana don’t give a sh*t, nevertheless in actuality, (McGregor) is appropriate fully spoiled because this photographs is for lifestyles. It’s for lifestyles. In point of fact, man, him and his total folks, they’re appropriate imperfect folks, man. All of them. They’re delusional.”
Abdelaziz indicated that he’s irked by McGregor’s recklessness and voiced the thought that McGregor will be doing extra alongside with his reputation to promote appropriate – rather than trash-talk.
“The man acts worship this (invincible) gangster, nevertheless he’s genuinely no longer. He’s a man,” Abdelaziz acknowledged. “God assessments you. He provides you this extra or much less vitality, correct? And he sees what you’re going to produce with it. (McGregor) did every thing spoiled alongside with his vitality. Get out about at guys worship Khabib (Nurmagomedov), Dustin Poirier, (and) Daniel Cormier. They employ their vitality (for) appropriate. They help folks. All this man does is hurt folks. Listen, this man has a family. By doing this, he’s hurting his family. Who needs to be the son of this kid? Nobody needs to be the son of someone worship him.”
As for doing future industrial with McGregor, one draw or the other thru the UFC, Abdelaziz is commence to his clients getting a payday. Abdelaziz thinks McGregor would possibly possibly well well be an effortless paycheck for his top lightweights, which embody outmoded UFC title challenger Justin Gaethje, UFC on ESPN 26 headliner Islam Makhachev, and top contender Beneil Dariush. McGregor’s days of being a “tricky out” for the upper-echelon of the division is over, in his estimation.
“In point of fact, f*ck him,” Abdelaziz acknowledged. “I don’t genuinely care about him. He’s easy money. I am hoping he’s wholesome. He can come help (and) wrestle (Justin) Gaethje, Islam (Makhachev), or Beneil (Dariush). He’s an effortless payday for everyone. He’s become, worship I acknowledged, he’s a prostitute. Guys employ him correct now for hype. That’s it. Because he’s easy money. He can no longer beat any one within the head 10 or the head 15. He can not compete with these guys anymore. He can not.”
