Ali Abdelaziz has come to the aid of his client Justin Gaethje, after a rejuvenated Tony Ferguson claimed via. Twitter that Justin Gaethje didn’t finish him, when they met at UFC 249. Gaethje won that fight via. TKO in the fifth round, after beating Tony Ferguson to a pulp. ‘El Cucuy’ was badly hurt that, the referee had to wave off the fight. Hadn’t the referee done so, Justin would have eventually finished Tony Ferguson.
Earlier this week, Tony Ferguson posted a video to Twitter, of himself practising claiming that Justin didn’t finish ‘sh*t’. Justin was quick to reply, saying that he certainly ‘did finish’ Tony, asking Tony to check the tape. In stepped Justin Gaethje’s manager and Dominance MMA Management CEO, Ali Abdelaziz – saying it was very clear that Tony Ferguson had quit, as he gave his back to the referee.
‘Charles couldn’t finish you but I certainly did‘ – Justin Gaethje
The Tony tweet, that started it all, read, “I’ll give you Elite, F**k you Justin Gaethje and Charles Oliveira you didn’t finish shit, told you I’d see you soon. Crew, much easier to see the targets when they are in front of you. Beyond. Disciplined. New camp New times champ CSO”.
“Charles couldn’t finish you but I certainly did. Check the tape champ,” Gaethje replied.
“No @Justin_Gaethje he waved off fight by giving his back to the referee. Quit!”, Ali Abdelaziz tweeted, coming to Justin’s aid.
Both Gaethje and Tony are yet to land an opponent. While Gaethje is very much in the title picture, Tony Ferguson has a lot of work to do before he can be considered title contender once again.
