Magomed Ankalaev made a promise for next year

The third number in the UFC light heavyweight division, Magomed Ankalaev, has outlined his main goal for next year.

“It was an instructive experience,” the Russian fighter wrote on the social network. “I don’t ask for handouts. I’m moving forward and won’t leave it up to the judges anymore. In 2023 I will take the championship belt”

On December 10 at UFC 282 in Las Vegas, Magomed Ankalaev made an unsuccessful bid for the vacant UFC Light Heavyweight Championship in a draw with former division champion Jan Blachowicz.

Despite the fact that the majority of fans, fighters and experts called the Russian the winner of this confrontation, the management of the organization decided to play the remaining vacant title in a duel between Glover Teixeira and Jamal Hill, who will head the UFC 283 tournament in Rio de Janeiro on January 21.
