Khabib’s manager says he’s a global superstar, should earn $50-$100 mil

manager-global-superstar-earn

I can’t say that I disagree with Khabib Nurmagomedov’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz, when he states that Khabib is a global superstar. The proof is in the pudding and Khabib certainly has a lot of proof. After his fight with Conor McGregor, Khabib has gone on a world tour of epic proportions.

While McGregor licked the wounds of his loss, he was immediately out hustling his brand of whiskey. Meanwhile, Khabib has been travelling the globe and meeting world leaders. Honestly, it’s insane.

So, when Abdelaziz says that Khabib is a global superstar, he’s not kidding. Is Khabib worth $50-$100 million per fight? Possibly. However, at this moment, I think it’s more Conor and Khabib together that make a $50 million payday.

50 Cent offers Khabib 2 mil to come to Bellator. 50 mil for Floyd, maybe

cent-offered-khabib-bellator

Khabib Nurmagomedov threatened the UFC that is his teammate was cut from the roster, he’d go with him. Rapper, 50 Cent, chimed in and offered Khabib 2 million dollars to jump ship and come to Bellator. Khabib’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz, said no way, but for 50 million; Where’s Floyd Mayweather at?

I could lie to you and say what I said before with Conor McGregor and Floyd; That it’s never going to happen. However, in this day and age, anything is possible for the right price.

It was only a few hours ago that Khabib said he would fight Mayweather and already the story is taking on a life of its own. You can bet that Khabib’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz, is going to milk this thing as long and hard as he can.

Khabib’s manager says a matchup vs McGregor is getting closer. Maybe.

manager-matchup-khabib-maybe

Ali Abdelaziz represents Khabib Nurmagomedov and he thinks that maybe, potentially, probably, there’s a chance… Conor McGregor could fight Khabib at some point before 2036 rolls around. I liked it when McGregor was poor because he wasn’t always sitting around contemplating his future.

However, Abdelaziz says that they are working on making it happen and Conor needs the money, too.

“Last time I talked to Dana it seemed like this was the fight that he wanted to do. This is the biggest fight in UFC history and the biggest money maker. Conor is running out of money and this is why he agreed to fight Khabib. We are going to contribute to him making some money, but at the end of the day, Khabib owes him an ass whooping. If this is what Dana wants, we will do it.”

For the love of God please make it happen already.

Kamaru Usman talks about his brawl with drunk fans at PFL last week

Kamaru Usman

You have to be either really drunk or a real dummy to test Usman You’d think fans at an MMA event would understand and know who they are engaging with. Evan Shoman posted a video of Kamaru Usman getting involved in some kind of scuffle at PFL and now Usman himself talks about what happened, … Read moreKamaru Usman talks about his brawl with drunk fans at PFL last week

Bedlam at the Garden. Abdelaziz and Usman brawling at PFL

bedlam-garden-abdelaziz-usman-brawling

I’d like to think that Kamaru Usman was only going 30% in this video. He and MMA manager, Ali Abdelaziz, were brawling with some unidentified sucker-punching trash talkers at Madison Square Garden last night. Both were in attendance for the PFL’s debut and a guy wearing a sportscoat looked like he had a lot to say.

Whatever was coming out of this guys’ mouth didn’t look like it sat too well with both Abdelaziz and Usman. In fact, both looked like they put the wood to this guy.

There was an argument and as soon as Usman walked away and turned his back, the sports-jacket guy tried sucker-punching him. Usman proceeded to then unload on the guy, as Abdelaziz wound up blasting some guy who tried to jump on him.

Of course, like any street fight, when it was over, the guy who got his ass handed to him, yelled for more.

Dude… Take the L and move on.

Khabib Nurmagomedov wants GSP, not McGregor according to his manager

Khabib Numagomedov

Khabib Nurmagomedov wants GSP, not the drama with Conor McGregor If you listen to Khabib Nurmagomedov’s manager Ali Abdelaziz, Nurmagomedov doesn’t want Conor McGregor next. He doesn’t like the drama that surrounds Conor, and that makes sense. Anytime McGregor is involved, it’s the Conor show. Ali Abdelaziz spoke to MMA Fighting and had a lot to … Read moreKhabib Nurmagomedov wants GSP, not McGregor according to his manager

Abdelaziz says Zabit is a ‘Much Better Version of Bruce Lee’

abdelaziz-zabit-better-version-bruce-lee

How DARE you, sir! Ali Abdelaziz claims that Zabit Magomedsharipov is a ‘Much better version of Bruce Lee”. I know that this guy supports his clients, but you do not take shots at Bruce Lee.

People like to argue that fighters of today could beat the fighters of old. It’s downright insulting that they lose sight of how pioneers paved the way for these superstars of today.

Take Royce Gracie for example. If there was no Royce Gracie, there is no MMA. Period. There are literally thousands of people that would pretzel him up today, but it doesn’t matter. He was the spark that got the BJJ ball rolling and influenced a movement.

Bruce Lee made everyone want to be a fighter. He was an icon who literally changed a generation. Saying anyone today is a better version of him…

Again, I say, how dare you.

 

Ali Abdelaziz hates McGregor but wishes he and his family all good things

abdelaziz-hates-mcgregor-wishes-family-good-things

Does the title confuse you? It should because it confused me. Wait until you watch the video, you’ll be even more confused. Almost in the same breath as him saying that he wishes nothing but the best for Conor McGregor, he all but says he hates him.

“Everyone expects me to talk bad about Conor McGregor, I’m not. I don’t think Conor McGregor is a bad guy.

Right now, Conor McGregor is not an enemy. I’m going to support him going through whatever he wants. But… if the UFC books (McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov), Conor McGregor is going to be the enemy of the f*****g state. Him and his whole f*****g team and we are going to declare war on all of them.

I’m glad Khabib’s team wasn’t there (At the bus fracas). We would have been burying bodies. 100% bodies are buried. Khabib’s team was there, we’d be going to some funerals.”

No words…
