A fighter who occupies the fifth position in the lightweight rating, Islam Makhachev is firmly convinced that winning the upcoming fight will be an opportunity for him to open access to taking part in a fight where the status of a contender for the title will be at stake.

The fighter himself said that he does not consider his meeting with Dos Anos as a contender fight. In his opinion, the duel that can be considered as a contender is a Chandler – Gatzhi meeting. At the moment, the fight with Anos is the best option for Islam, while he assumed that he would have a meeting in the ring with Dariush, but the fighter did not show interest in the fight, perhaps new details will appear at the beginning of next year.

According to the fighter, the fight, which will take place in October, was not part of his plans, but the UFC insisted on holding it. Dos Anos was the only suitable opponent. After the end of the fight, scheduled for October, Islam is going to hold another fight in the middle of winter next year. This one can be considered as a candidate one.

The meeting in the ring between Makhachev and Dos Anos will take place at the end of October and will be one of the events of the UFC 267 tournament.

In addition, Emanuel reminded the media that in the first half of 2021, the UFC held three major events. The company was not only able to recoup them, but also set a new record for ticket sales for fights.

Arman Tsarukyan: "The top 5 lightweight is very good, but Makhachev will be able to beat everyone"
The Russian lightweight according to the UFC rating Arman Tsarukyan suggested the best fighter in his unit, and also hinted that he could defeat all his compatriots and former rival Islam Makhachev. Tsarukyan believes that there are no winners in the current five lightweight division. All of them allegedly got into the top 5 after the defeat.

"The top five is very good at the moment. But I don't see a winner – everything is after the defeat. I love the champion, he is very good. I really don't like Gesji, I love Poiril. Islam is boring, but it does one hundred percent of its work, and it does its job. I think this is the most accurate game plan at the moment. Why take risks when you can outperform others in battle. Dariusz is not bad, but he is not a champion. In my opinion, he has no ambitions to become a champion. I think he can get through.

There are no new fighters. In principle, the five strongest continue to spin, and the ten-all sit in one place. It's good that Feld and Yaquinta flew out - we got into some places. I haven't seen anyone since novichok. "Moises was sent to fight Islam, otherwise he would not have been the best fighter," Arman Tsarukyan told the RT Sport MMA YouTube channel.

Former UFC lightweight champion Rafael Dos Anos explained what makes Khabib Nurmagomedov and Islam Makhachev different fighters.

Raphael is firmly convinced that the fighters have few similarities in terms of the manner of fighting. He believes that these fighters need to be compared from different positions to form a complete picture of them. Islam is distinguished by talent, while Habib has his own strengths. The fighter came to this conclusion, taking into account the opinion of those who had experience of interacting with both fighters and their own experience. The main strength of Islam is technicality, Habib, in turn, wants to focus on offensive combat techniques.

It is important for Islam to create optimal positions for itself, in which it can implement its strategies. Khabib highlights the offensive against the opponent, which allows him to dominate the ring. When meeting in the ring, Khabib sets his own rhythm, he has a tendency to take risks, and he often goes to a dangerous rapprochement for himself.

Javier Mendes told who he considers the favorite of the Gatji - Chandler fight
The owner of the well-known hall AKA H. Mendes voiced his thoughts about the upcoming fight between the former temporary UFC lightweight title holder D. Gatzhi and the former challenger for him M. Chandler.

Mendes believes that Gatzhi will win this fight thanks to his ability to hold a punch and a beautiful jaw. Chandler's chin is a vulnerable place. The opponents will test the strength of each other's jaws, and the fight itself, Javier is sure, will be reduced to zero, since they both have outstanding wrestling qualities.

According to the owner of the hall, the whole fight will be held in a stand. He doubts that one opponent will be able to resist another, simply giving preference to the one with the stronger jaw, that is, Gatzhi.

According to available information, before that, the former interim UFC lightweight champion said that, having defeated Chandler, he would like to take revenge in a duel with D. Porye.

Fernand Lopez turned to Francis Ngannou: "Remember who brought you to the UFC"

Lopez reminded Ngann that they had worked together for five years, back in the days when no one knew about the future champion. According to the coach, sports training has always been free for Francis. However, most of all, the mentor is outraged that his student does not tell, thanks to whose help he got into the UFC.

Fernand Lopez reproaches Nganna that when asked how the fighter got into the UFC, he always answers, they say, he just went out to fight, he was noticed, and then an invitation was received. And not a word about the coach.

As Lopez says, the help to the fighter was not only in sports training. At the beginning of his career, when Ngannou did not yet have an impressive track record and won only the first victories, no one in the UFC considered him seriously, invitations to competitions were not received.

The coach of Cameroonian origin recalls that in order to change the situation and the career growth of the student, he had to use all personal connections. As a result, he presented a contract with the UFC as a birthday gift for Francis Ngannou. Although the fighter himself believed that the surprise that the mentor was talking about at the time could be a simulator.

It is not known how Ngannu will respond to the reproaches of ingratitude. Fernando Lopez can only hope that his help in becoming a UFC superstar will not be forgotten by his other student — Cyril Gunn, who took the interim title of champion in a duel with Derrick Lewis on August 7, 2021.
