Abdelaziz Claims Floyd Needs Khabib

Dana White has made it clear that Khabib Nurmagomedov will only fight Floyd Mayweather inside a UFC Octagon, something Khabib’s manager considers “voluntary manslaughter.”

Speaking with TMZ, Ali Abdelaziz claimed that “an MMA fight, I don’t think any state athletic commission should allow that,” Ali Abdelaziz told TMZ … “It would be illegal. It would be voluntary manslaughter.”

Abdelaziz is as confident in his client inside the octagon as in a boxing ring, and even more confident that Mayweather is just using Khabib’s name to stay relevant.

“Khabib is wide. When Khabib is boxing him, he will cover him. He will put his body on him, make him tired. Carry the weight and get him tired. I think 100 percent [Khabib can win],” Abdelaziz said.

“I think Floyd just wants to keep his name relevant. He’s 57 years old. He’s almost 60 … He can’t do nothing to Khabib.”
