UFC: Ali Abdelaziz Offers Conor McGregor A Shot At Kamaru Usman
Ali Abdelaziz has said that if Conor McGregor really wants a title shot, then he should fight UFC welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman.
McGregor has ignited a firestorm on social media in the last seven days. The outspoken Irishman couldn’t hold back on Monday night and began a verbal campaign against his lightweight rivals in the wake of UFC 249.
As part of his recent outburst, the former UFC two division champion shifted his focus towards the 170lbs division. McGregor has expressed interest in fighting ‘BMF’ title holder, and current UFC welterweight contender, Jorge Masvidal in the past.
However, in an interview with TMZ Sports, Ali Abdelaziz has suggested that McGregor should turn his attention to the undisputed welterweight champion.
“Conor said he wants to fight for a title. He wants to become a champion again. I think Conor only has one chance to fight for a title right now… if he grows some kahunas. He said… he tweeted 170lb right? Forget about Masvidal right now. If Conor wants to come then listen…
“If Conor called the UFC right now and said he wants to fight Kamura Usman then the UFC would say yes.”
Abdelaziz, who managers Usman and Khabib Nurmagomedov, went on to confirm that Usman and himself would both be happy to accept a bout with their nemesis.
“I think he’s the easiest fight in the UFC right now. But he also talks a lot and doesn’t have enough kahunas to come and fight someone like Kamaru. To be honest with you, I think it should be illegal for him to fight Kamaru. I don’t even think it should be legal.”
The Dominance MMA CEO was serious with his offer but had some advice for McGregor, if he wants to convince Usman.
“If he wants this fight, then he needs to go on his knees and beg like he made everyone else beg.”
Do you think that Conor McGregor would have a chance at dethroning the UFC welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman?
One week on and Ali Abdelaziz is doubling down on his offer to give Conor McGregor the fight against his man Kamaru Usman for the UFC welterweight title.
