Covington Says He’s Going To Ask Trump To Deport Abdelaziz
The war of words between Colby Covington and Ali Abdelaziz continues. Abdelaziz, the manager of Kamaru Usman and Khabib Nurmagomedov, just to name a couple, has a strained relationship with many fighters. But none more vocal than Covington.
The two got into an altercation in a buffet line in Las Vegas, the day after UFC 235 back in March. Covington said afterwards that Abdelaziz threatened to shoot him. The two have gone back and forth ever since.
“Well, first off, you got to get his name right. His name is Ali Abdelasleaze. The sleazeball is a terrorist rat. The guy has no boundaries, I can’t believe he hasn’t been deported yet. By the way, I’m about to get on the phone with Donald Trump after I get off this interview. That is the second time he has punched someone in the face in the last couple of months. He has two charges pending in Vegas against him.”
Covington went on to say that Abdelaziz was being investigated for sexual assault of a UFC employee.
“Also, I don’t know if you guys, you guys should do your research and do some digging into this, but he also has a sexual assault case against one of the UFC employees for trying to rape one of the UFC employees at an event. You should dig into that and start asking Ali those questions. The guy is a complete scumbag, a dirtbag, and I don’t know how he hasn’t been deported yet
“He must have definitely ratted all his friends from Egypt and got them life sentences and must still be giving them informant type information to be getting off all the charges he has gotten off. That guy has literally done everything there is to in the book besides kill somebody that we know of. The guy is a sleazeball and that is that.”
While the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department have confirmed that Abdelaziz is facing charges for the assault on his fellow MMA manger Abe Kawa at last weekend’s PFL 2019, Playoffs 1 event, there is no evidence currently suggesting that he was involved in a sexual assault.
As a result of the charges brought against Abdelaziz, The Professional Fighters League has said that it has instructed him not to attend any of its events until the situation has been resolved. The PFL 2019 Playoffs 2 card is set to go down on Friday night. Of the sixteen fighters on the card, Abdelaziz manages ten of them.
Colby Covington is set to challenge Ali Abdelaziz’s Kamaru Usman for the UFC welterweight title, in the UFC 245 main event on December 14th in Las Vegas.
