Ali Abdelaziz, best known for being the manager of Khabib Nurmagomedov, has been in the news for his backstage altercation with Dillon Danis at UFC 268.
Abdelaziz is one of the most famous names in MMA these days despite a disappointing career as a fighter. His record stands at one win and three losses, all defeats by way of submission.
The Egyptian quickly realised his career in the business lay away from the octagon. He set up a management firm and is now among the best in the business in his field.
Fans have been wondering about Abdelaziz’s net worth as his fighters stole the show at UFC 268. Here’s what we know.
Ali Abdelaziz: Net worth in 2021
According to Digital Net Worth, Abdelaziz is worth anywhere between $3 million and $4 million.
He represents a number of high-profile fighters in multiple promotions and has created a burgeoning business through his company Dominance MMA Management.
The outlet claims Abdelaziz’s annual income is between $400,000 and $700,000, which would be a very good return for a manager in UFC.
Fighters managed by Abdelaziz
Abdelaziz’s company, Dominance MMA Management, has a star-studded roster. They manage some of the biggest names in the UFC today, apart from the now-retired Khabib, who was arguably their biggest client.
Kamaru Usman, current pound-for-pound number one fighter in MMA, and other UFC stars including Justin Gaethje, Marvin Vettori, Belal Muhammed, Beneil Dariush, Henry Cejudo, Islam Makhachev and Cody Garbrandt are managed by Abdelaziz.
PFL stars Kayla Harrison, Lance Palmer and Ali Isaev, ONE Championship’s Marcus Almeida, Murad Ramazanov and Cosmo Alexandre are also represented by Dominance MMA Management.

Dillon Danis showed up at UFC 268 and got himself involved in an altercation with Abdelaziz.
Nobody really knows the reason behind the altercation, but it reportedly ended with Abdelaziz slapping Danis across the face.
Security intervened and escorted Danis out of the building. Michael Bisping, in a now-deleted tweet, revealed the Bellator star has now been banned from all UFC events. (MMA Fighting)
