WSOF Matchmaker Ali Abdel-Aziz Has A Few Choice Words To Describe Bellator’s Actions: “Slimy”, “Scummy” And “Dirty”
Bellator and the UFC do not get along. I’m not speaking of the fighters themselves, or even the companies as a whole. I’m speaking of the talking heads of the two companies, UFC President Dana White and CEO of Bellator Fighting Championships, Bjorn Rebney. These two men have always been quick to trade passive-aggressive digs at each other (and just plain-old aggressive digs), posturing and arguing over who has the better product; the better champions; the better fights. And now a third party is throwing his hat in the proverbial cage: WSOF matchmaker, Ali Abdel-Aziz.
