Damir Ismagulov made a request to the UFC

Four weeks after the announcement of his resignation, Russian-Kazakh fighter Damir Ismagulov is ready to resume his professional career for a rematch with Arman Tsarukyan, who inflicted his only defeat in the UFC in the previous fight.

“Recently, Sayat’s manager told me that I have one more fight left under my contract with the UFC,” Ismagulov wrote on the social network. “There were a lot of offers from other leagues where the fees were much higher and you could go there and make money, but I came to the UFC not for money, but for the legacy, to prove to myself that I can compete with the strongest fighters! »

“I ended my career, but when I found out that I had one more fight under the contract, I decided that I needed to return and finish the job! It is customary for us to return debts! In the last fight, I lost to Arman Tsarukyan, who is one of the strongest lightweight fighters in the UFC, his fight is really at a good level! I would let go of this moment if I understood that I did everything I could. I think we can show the fight much better, more spectacular – 5 rounds or 3, it doesn’t matter! We promised the fans to finish our fight ahead of schedule! Sayat, Dana White, Sean Shelby, give us a rematch. Let’s have a last fight with fireworks”

Recall that the fight between Arman Tsarukyan and Damir Ismagulov, which took place on December 17 at UFC Fight Night 216 in Las Vegas, went the whole distance and ended with the victory of Akhalkalaki by unanimous decision.
