Controversial MMA manager Ali Abdelaziz, who has UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov among his clients, claims he has been hospitalized twice in recent years amid repeated attempts on his life.

Abdelaziz made the claims on Monday’s edition of Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show on ESPN, saying that he has been poisoned on at least two separate occasions.

When pressed for details by Helwani, such as the type of poison used, Abdelaziz refused to reveal more.

“It doesn’t matter, I was poisoned,” he said. “It doesn’t matter. Like I said, if you’re my friend I’m going to love you more. If you’re not my friend, don’t come around me.”

Abdelaziz corrected reports which said the alleged poisonings occurred in the last two years, saying instead that the attempts on his life have been going on “for years.”

This guy loves attention.
