The head of the Absolute Fighting Championship (UFC) Dana White spoke about the future opponent of the Russian Islam Makhachev. He spoke about this in the YouTube show The A-Side Livechat.
White said that he intends to organize a duel for Makhachev with an American of Iranian origin Beneil Dariush. The latter marked a victory over former interim UFC champion Tony Ferguson.
On July 18, Makhachev defeated the Brazilian Thiago Moises. The Russian named several fighters with whom he would like to meet in the octagon. In particular, Makhachev is aiming for a duel with Rafael Dos Anjos and former Bellator champion Michael Chandler.
Dariusz has seven victories in a row in the UFC. He has not been inferior since March 2018.
Makhachev is a student of Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov, coach and father of ex-UFC champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.
