The rating Russian lightweight (up to 70 kg) UFC fighter Islam Makhachev ironically explained on social networks the organization of his fight with the little-known Brazilian Thiago Moises, which will take place on July 17 at the UFC Fight Night.
“On July 17th in Las Vegas I will have the next fight. In the near future I will fly to America for preparation.
We have been looking for an opponent for a long time, but we have the following alignment: out of the top 10, none of the free ones agreed to fight for various reasons. They said: “If you want to get the top, you have to wait until November-December.”
My career is going slowly, but in the right direction. As I win every fight, I get higher in the rankings. Someday in my old age I will reach this belt with a winning streak of 20 fights, ”the fighter Islam Makhachev wrote on his Instagram.
