The top fighter of the lightest weight of the UFC, Askar Askarov, said that he is ready to fight with the champion of his division, Brandon Moreno, at the end of the year. Now the Russian continues to recover from surgery on his hand, however, as evidenced by the last post of Askarov on Instagram, he has already returned to training.
“I welcome everyone. I thank everyone who asks and worries about me! I have already started to smoothly enter the training process, and in December I will be ready to take the belt from Brandon Moreno. I want to say thank you to the employees of UFC PI for their help in rehabilitation, “ Askar Askarov wrote, posting a video of his training.
Recall that at the end of July, Askarov was supposed to fight against American Alex Perez, but withdrew from this fight due to a broken arm. Two years ago, the Russian had already entered the octagon with Moreno, and then they could not determine the winner.
