The renewal / extension reiterates the Dagestani fighter’s continued trust in Abdelaziz’s skills as a manager, despite the Egyptian-born Ali being subjected to a pernicious smear campaign by a Canada-based stalker.
Damon Martin, another MMA reporter, also tweeted today that Bellator featherweight Aaron Pico has signed with Dominance MMA.
Bellator featherweight Aaron Pico has signed with @AliAbdelaziz00 and Dominance MMA as his new management team.
“Aaron has so much raw talent, one of the most talented fighters I’ve ever seen. He will become Bellator champion but it will be the right way.”

Abdelaziz later tweeted the news from his own account.

Pico is coming off a two-loss streak, but is expected to eventually move on to the UFC now that he has Abdelaziz as his agent.
