This Saturday night, in the UFC 259, Islam Makhachev he was left with one of the best performances. With an immense submission about Drew dober, the Dagestani followed the training that his cousin, Khabib Nurmagomedov, gave. Now, the Lightweights fear for the power and legacy of the Russians in the division. Without a doubt, a new era is coming after the possible retirement of the champion.
After the victory, Islam Makhachev He said: “Thank you all for the support. 2020 was a very bad year, I lost people very close to me. That’s why I was away for so long. I came back in a good way and today it was proven. Now I have seven wins in a row and I need someone from above. Tony Ferguson, whatever. I have no doubt that I will beat whoever they put me in front of. I knew this shovel was not going to be easy ».
«He came with everything for this fight and it would not be easy. I was ready to trade with him, but I preferred to go the easy way and subdue him. There was no other way than to end it like this, simple. We are happy for this victory. Bring someone in the top five, I’m ready to take you all out. I have no doubt that I will have this result again in my next fight.
For his part, Khabib had said days ago: “Now, everyone is talking about Dustin (Poirier), Conor (McGregor), (Michael) Chandler, Justin (Gaethje), (Charles) Oliveira. But by the end of the year, it will be changed. I don’t think anyone can beat Makhachev at this time. He will lead the division, I have no doubts about that. He is the most complete fighter there is at the moment and he will surely take over the belt.
