Former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov decided to give a boost to the career of his fellow and divisional colleague Islam Makhachev. On his Twitter page, Nurmagomedov turned to the boss of the promotion, Dana White, hinting that Makhachev was expecting a big fight.
Note that Makhachev fought his last fight at the March UFC 259 tournament, where he strangled Drew Dober in the third round.
We will remind, earlier the manager of Islam Ali Abdel-Aziz named two potential rivals of his fighter whom he promotes.
“We were offered a duel with Paul Felder. I love Paul, I respect him and I can’t say anything bad about him. I don’t know where we’ll come, but so far everything is moving in the wrong direction. I think Islam Makhachev has no fight right now. Paul Felder is not fighting now either. Perhaps they should fight. Since they are both free now, perhaps they should be brought together. Or Islam may fight Hooker, “Ali Abdelaziz told ESPN.
