The UFC created a bubble on Battle Island with all employees, fighters, and help personnel quarantined collectively. Nonetheless, shortly earlier than UFC 257, undefeated rising star Ottman “The Bulldozer” Azaitar violated COVID-19 well being and security protocols.
The light-weight and his group tried to sneak an unapproved visitor into the designated security zone by chopping and passing off a safety wristband. The interloper was caught with a duffel bag whereas attempting to scale the surface of the lodge, ninja type. Azaitar was escorted from the premises, and his struggle vs. Matt Frevola was canceled.
UFC president Dana White was furious, and it was extensively believed Azaitar could be launched, however White later relented. It likely didn’t damage that “The Bulldozer” has pals in excessive locations.
Nonetheless the query remained – what was within the duffel bag? Azaitar’s supervisor, Dominance MMA founder Ali Abdelaziz, provided an evidence to Yahoo! Sports activities’ Kevin Iole.
“Potatoes,” defined Abdelaziz. “Potatoes. It was potatoes within the bag.”
Throughout his first interview because the incident, Azaitar mentioned it wasn’t potatoes.
“Okay pay attention, I don’t know what [Abdelaziz] informed you, however … he doesn’t know both. He wasn’t there,” mentioned Azaitar, to and as translated by Preventing.de. “Relating to this example, let’s put it like this: Now that you simply ask… ***laughs*** It’s humorous typically. I really like being convicted prematurely typically. Typically you maintain a shock field in your hand, not understanding what’s in there and you might be very enthusiastic about it. However if you open it, one thing foolish is in there. One thing you don’t like. Or the precise reverse: You’re afraid of one thing unhealthy and ultimately, there’s one thing good in there. What I need to inform you with this little riddle: Persons are fast to guage. However that.
“However to be sincere: None of those persons are paying my lease, none of those folks care, if I do effectively or not. I’m not speaking about each viewer or each reporter, I had many supporters as effectively. However the majority was gloating over this, even some very shut pals. They at all times want you the perfect, from the underside of their hearts, however as quickly as you’ve obtain one thing, they hate you for it. However over time it’s a must to… these are my garments hangers, no matter. Sorry ***laughs*** Over time it’s a must to study… [turns to Naurdiev]. Include me, in any other case I’ll go loopy. [Both are mumbling.] Lengthy story quick: The place was I? Ah sure, the bag…
“I simply need to say: After I – Ottman Azaitar – will resolve to let the general public learn about this, then solely once I need to and once I see match. Not as a result of somebody even thinks he can stress me mentally and psychologically to deal with this and maybe lie about this or no matter. No, no my pal. I’m not asking your mom what’s in right here purse, do I? I’m not even asking her, if she has a bag within the first place! Individuals shouldn’t at all times react prematurely after they learn one thing. In fact, Dana White got here down there and gave that assertion. However Dana White even mentioned it himself that he didn’t know if… what I imply?
“I’m not holding that towards him. He has his safety guys, and so they come as much as him and inform him this and that, balcony, blah blah blah. In fact, he thinks that there’s gotta be one thing to that story and says that in his assertion. He even requested in that interview, if he ought to actually do that, if they need to actually inform this story. Lengthy story quick: I don’t need to say that one thing shouldn’t be true, and I don’t need to say that one thing is true. Do you have to launch these phrases to the general public, I need you to maintain all of this in it, so nothing will be taken out of context. You recognize what I imply? That is vital to me. I’m principally saying nothing proper now, that is principally a no touch upon that entire scenario and the bag itself. I’m simply speaking about my life normally – It’s attainable that somebody is making a declare about you, it’s additionally attainable that you’re actually responsible.
“I’m supplying you with a bit riddle, as a result of I promised a Moroccan reporter earlier than you to speak to him first, as quickly as I need to handle this a bit extra brazenly. I promise you: for the German-speaking area, I’ll discuss to you concerning the what, the who, the why and so forth. However what I actually need to let all people know is: I received’t do that as a result of somebody thinks he can stress me or bug me, till I say one thing. And all of the folks going: ‘We had been supporting you for years, you owe us one thing’ – I owe you nothing, I by no means borrowed something from you! I don’t ask what’s in your sister’s purse or your mom’s purse or no matter. In fact, folks need to know what I take into consideration this, however I’m the grasp of my very own ideas! And I resolve when and if I specific them to the general public or not. The whole lot I’m saying right here is extra riddle than… oh wait, that is my alarm clock. I’ve to go coaching.”
And so, like who killed JFK and is there actually a cash pit on Oak Island, the thriller of the duffle bag continues.
