Ali Abdelaziz Gets 5 More Years with Khabib, Signs Aaron Pico

Yahoo! Sports‘ star reporter Kevin Iole posted the scoop today about UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov signing a new five-year management deal with Dominance MMA’s Ali Abdelaziz.

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.

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.
