Islam Makhachev promised to panic the best UFC fighter

The current UFC lightweight champion, Islam Makhachev, commented on the words of his rival Alexander Volkanovski, who said he was not going to panic even if the Russian could transfer him.

“I won’t be surprised if he can’t transfer me because I’m working hard on it, but if it does, I guarantee you I will be collected, calm, and do everything in my power to get back on my feet. And I won’t panic. You will not see me lose my temper – nothing like that will happen, because I will be more than ready, ”said the Australian in an interview with Michael Bisping.

The Russian lightweight has made it clear that the first successful transfer will have unfortunate consequences for the best UFC fighter, regardless of weight.

“After the first fifteen helpless seconds on the ground, I guarantee you will panic,” Makhachev wrote on the social network, quoting an interview with an opponent.

Recall that the title superfight in lightweight between Islam Makhachev and Alexander Volkanovski will be the main event of the UFC 284 tournament, which will be held February 12 in Perth, Australia.
