General Combat Sports Dodginess

Didn’t know where to put this. Didn’t wanna stick it in the Top Twitter thread because it’d seem a bit off in a light hearted thread. And it might not be Minor News either so here we are. There’s something going on with Ali Abdelaziz and Fernand Lopez who runs the MMA Factory in France, manages Ciryl Gane etc.

Don’t know what the fuck’s going on but it’s a story that might be worth keeping tabs on. I know the ‘Slim’ the messages refer to (not Shady) is Slim Tralbesi. He’d just been signed by the UFC and was supposed to fight at 280 in Abu Dhabi next month. Then mysteriously, the UFC parted ways with him. Sounds like a mix up where he wasn’t fully released from another contract. Don’t know if the recent weirdness surrounding Cedric Doumbe and the Paris card the other week ties in with this. Something is going on. There’s been rumours that Ali is a bit of a dodgy character for some time and Ngannou’s split with Lopez was supposedly a bad one.

Let this be the general combat sports shithouse thread, I guess. There’s plenty of them. Whether it’s these two, the Russians with links to Kadyrov or just old stories of Don King being his scummy self.

There’s been talk of that for years but I’ve never bothered looking into it. Most of the stuff out there about it comes back to a guy on Twitter called Mike Russell. Don’t know how legit his information is or if he’s just some nut who’s become obsessed with the whole thing but he’s apparently been promising a podcast on it for years and fuck all’s came of it.

A fight broke out at the ADCC Open (tournament before the tournament) in which Murilo Santana allegedly pulled out a knife. All started by Ty Freeman (look at his IG if you ever want to see a "humble lion") and Santana jumped in to defend his guy and then it all kicked off.
