Super agent Ali Abdelaziz says that there is no way Conor McGregor will get a title shot immediately after returning to the UFC.
Ali Abdelaziz is a household name when it comes to fighter agents. Some of his clients include Khabib Nurmagomedov, Kamaru Usman, Justin Gaethje, and so on. Another one of his high-profile clients is Islam Makhachev. Makhachev is one of the talked about fighters in the UFC. He is on an 11-fight win streak. Many people are touting him as the next Lightweight Champion.
The belt, however, remains vacant after Charles Oliveira was stripped of it. Oliveira will be able to contest for the title in his next match, but it remains to be seen who is opponent will be. Many people are vouching Makhachev to be Oliveira’s opponent, but there has also been noise about Conor McGregor facing Oliveira for the title.
In response to such claims, Ali Abdelaziz said, “Conor McGregor is rehabbing from his injury, but in reality he is rehabbing from his drug habits. Nobody cares about Connor McGregor. He hasn’t won a fight since (Barack) Obama was President. He is a Twitter fighter now; an Instagram fighter. When was the last time he fought to show us that he is worthy of a UFC title?”
“I understand the UFC business, but I know Dana White like the back of my hand. Dana White will never give Connor McGregor a title fight coming off three losses. I know him. And if he did(give title shot to Connor), I will be f***ing shocked. But I don’t think Dana will ever do that.”
You can be sure that Conor will have a response to the what Abdelaziz said. After all, Abdelaziz did call him a social media fighter.
