Famed mixed martial arts (MMA) manager Ali Abdelaziz has inked another notable fighter to his Dominance MMA team.

According to Damon Martin of MMA Fighting, Bellator featherweight star Aaron Pico has signed on with Abdelaziz and Dominance. Abdelaziz offered a brief statement on signing Pico.

“Aaron has so much raw talent, one of the most talented fighters I’ve ever seen. He will become Bellator champion but it will be the right way.”

Pico has seen quite a bit of struggle in his young MMA career. He came into Bellator as a highly-touted prospect, expected to make waves in the featherweight division. Instead, his professional debut was over in just 24 seconds with a submission loss. After that, Pico saw success with a four-fight win streak, winning all via stoppage in the first round.

That win streak came to an end against Henry Corrales at Bellator 214 in January. Pico was knocked out in the first round of their matchup in Inglewood. He returned earlier this summer in June against Ádám Borics at Bellator 222, only to be knocked out again in the second round with a flying knee.

It will be interesting to see how the 22-year-old responds coming off back-to-back knockout losses.

What do you make of Pico deciding to sign with Abdelaziz and Dominance MMA?

Urijah Faber has called for a title shot after he beat Ricky Simon at UFC Sacramento. It was his first fight back in two-and-a-half years, and he came back in a big way by knocking out the prospect in just 46-seconds.

Whether or not “The California Kid” deserves a title shot against Henry Cejudo is to be seen. But, the champ-champ’s manager in Ali Abdelaziz doesn’t believe Faber deserves a title shot and instead should fight Marlon Moraes next.

“Urijah you know he got an impressive win last week. But, we never really got to see Urijah. He is 40-years-old and is coming back,” Abdelaziz said to TMZ Sports (as transcribed by BJPENN). “This is a young man’s game but you can’t deny him. The guy has been around for a long time. But, if he really wants to fight Henry Cejudo, I have a proposal for him. If you want Henry Cejudo, you can’t be the number 15 guy and fight Henry. There are a lot of guys in line. You got Aljamain Sterling in line, Petr Yan in line, but the guy above them is Marlon Moraes. He has a number ahead of him, number one. Marlon Moraes is number one.

“I manage Marlon Moraes. If Urijah Faber would like to get a shot at Henry, he should fight Marlon. If he beats Marlon he guarantees himself a title shot, if he beats Marlon he would become number one, as it makes no sense having number 14 fight the champ. You have to earn your way up. Listen, if Urijah beats Marlon, he deserves it,” the manager continued. “Marlon is one of the best guys still in the division, he probably comes back and fights for a title soon. And I don’t know if this is really good for Urijah to fight Marlon but it is up to him. Marlon called him out, not disrespectful, everybody gives Urijah respect, he has paid his dues. But, as Henry said, he is always has been number two and now has a chance to fight number one and number one is Marlon.”

Whether or not Faber has any interest in that fight is unknown as it seems adamant he wants that title shot.
