We spoke with Ali Abdelaziz (looking fresh in his Versace shirt) after Khabib’s big victory over Dustin Poirier in Abu Dhabi this weekend … and we had to ask who’s next on the hit list!!!
Of course, Dana White has said he wants Khabib to fight Tony Ferguson — the #1 ranked lightweight contender — but Ali says Tony’s not the priority.
“Georges St-Pierre is next,” Ali tells TMZ Sports … “If Khabib is going to fight for legacy, a fight with GSP would be a huge fight.”
Ali says Tony has never been a champion — while GSP is widely regarded as one of the greatest UFC fighters of all time … so for him, it’s a no-brainer.
Plus, Ali says there’s WAY more money in a Khabib vs. GSP fight … explaining, “People would care more!!!”
Ali tells us, Khabib could be ready to take that fight before the end of 2019 — and he’s confident Georges could be ready too.
As for Conor — who recently tweeted about wanting a 2nd crack at Khabib — Ali says Khabib has nothing left to prove … and since he smashed McGregor so badly in the first fight, there’s no need for a rematch.
