Ali Abdelaziz has a very controversial opinion. Although he witnessed several champions like Khabib Nurmagomedov, Kamaru Usman, Islam Makhachev, and many others, Ali Bellator supports MMA prospects as the biggest talent in the cage.
Aaron Pico must be special if the manager of UFC greats Khabib, Kamaru and Henry Cejudo rates him highest. Recently Ali Abdelaziz, the CEO of Dominance MMA, spoke to ESPN’s Marc Raimondi for ESPN MMA. The Bellator MMA featherweight currently trains at Jackson Wink MMA Academy and also previously trained at American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, Florida.
Abdelaziz, who witnessed Pico’s talent, claims the featherweight tossed around with UFC champions in the gym with ease. Ali is confident Aaron is the future of the sport and claims the 25-year-old sits at the same table as Usman, Khabib, Islam and others when it comes to talent.
“Aaron Pico. He’s top 2 or top 3 today at 145 pounds.” said Abdelaziz. “At the gym, I see Aaron play with UFC champions, play with them, you know. He’s the best talent I’ve ever seen and I’ve managed Kamaru Usman, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Islam Makhachev.”

“The best talent at this age” Ali Abdelaziz praises the featherweight Bellator highly
“Aaron [Pico] and Umar Nurmagomedov, the best talent at that age I’ve ever seen in my life. Some of the things these guys do I never see anyone do. You understand?” Ali told ESPN’s Marc Raimondi.
Aaron is a very big prospect in Bellator’s featherweight division. The fighter is a must-have at Bellator 277 when he returns to fight Adli Edwards. Pico is a rising star trying to build one of the best career runs. Pico is the favorite against Edwards in the upcoming fight due to his experience of high profile competition.
Aaron has a 9-3 record in his MMA career. The fighter comes from a strong wrestling background and represents his country, the United States of America, at international level. Watch Abdelaziz’s full interview with ESPN MMA below:
