Ali Abdelaziz Claims That Jake Paul Would 'Beat The S**t Out' Of UFC Superstar Conor McGregor
YouTube star Jake Paul would "beat the s**t out" of UFC superstar Conor McGregor and the Irishman's teammate, according to Ali Abdelaziz.
Paul, 23, turned his attention to McGregor after his sensational KO victory over Nate Robinson on the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr in November 2020.
And Paul has also intensified his rivalry with McGregor's teammate Dillon Danis, which included a bizarre drive-by-style water balloon attack on the MMA fighter.
Abdelaziz, who represents both Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje, has made his feelings clear about McGregor in the past and exchanged a war of words with the UFC star.
And now the 43-year-old Egyptian MMA manager admitted that he likes Paul and backed the YouTuber to "beat the s**t" out of McGregor.
Abdelaziz told TMZ: "Jake Paul, I like this kid. You know why? Because he is real.
"When he talked about Conor's wife, [Paul] said [McGregor] talked about Khabib's wife.
"I like Jake Paul. I think he'll beat the s**t out of Conor, his teammates, all these guys.

"I like his brother [Logan], too. They make something from nothing. Even Mike Tyson likes these kids. Mike is my friend."
Boxing star Billy Joe Saunders has dismissed Paul's chances in a fight by insisting that McGregor would "spark him and hurt him bad in UFC or boxing."
Logan Paul has even weighed in on Paul's desire to fight McGregor and branded his younger brother "f*****g dumb" for calling him out.
UFC president Dana White has slammed the idea of booking a fight between McGregor and Paul, saying that UFC star Amanda Nunes would knock out the YouTuber.
"Amanda Nunes will knock that kid out," he said.
"To even think about that guy fighting, he's like, 'I'm never going to fight a woman.' You shouldn't. You shouldn't because she'll put you in a coma. That guy is just some kid off the street.
"One of the big problems with him right now, he's lucky there's a pandemic.
"He's talking smack about real people -- real people that he could run into at a restaurant some night and things like that. This isn't a real guy. This is just some kid on YouTube."
