Islam Makhachev's team responded to allegations of doping

The representative of Islam Makhachev’s team, Shamil Zavurov, commented on the statement of the American Bobby Green, who accused the reigning UFC lightweight champion of using steroids since childhood and therefore has incredible strength.

“When Khabib had a headache, he didn’t even take a pill once again – the same is with Islam,” Zavurov said in an interview. RB Sport. “All my life we ​​have been going to this, and suddenly something is not right. Any pill from the head or some kind of painkiller – they sent it to the manager and only after his agreement with the UFC could they drink “

“Because you have been going to this all your life, and then they will say that you are not a pure fighter. So it’s not even close. The guys are very closely following this, so that even by chance nothing turns up. I think Islam had a head and shoulders above the fight, and he simply did not know what to do, so he says this. He just hasn’t met a fighter like Islam.”

Following Bobby Green, who, after an early defeat from Islam Makhachev, himself served a six-month disqualification for the use of prohibited substances, accusations against Russian fighters were made by American Sean O’Malley, who said that in Russia doping was put on stream.
