Rakhmonov’s team named the condition of the fight with Della Maddalena

If Colby Covington and Kamaru Usman refuse to share the octagon with Shavkat Rakhmonov, and if the organization of the title fight between Leon Edwards and Belal Muhammad is postponed indefinitely, the undefeated Kazakhstani fighter is ready to consider a fight against Australian Jack Della Maddalena, who challenged him last weekend.

This was announced by the manager of “Nomad”, Sayat Abdrakhmanov.

“Logically speaking, the fight with Maddalena is one of our next steps,” Sportskeeda quoted Abdrakhmanov as saying. “Because if Colby and Usman refuse to fight Shavkat, we don’t have only Maddalena left.”

“The other option is related to the title fight between Leon and Belal. If they fight anytime soon, Shawkat is not planning to fight anytime soon. In that case, we are considering the option of fighting the winner of this confrontation. There is such an option.”

Last weekend at UFC 299 in Miami, Jack Della Maddalena earned his seventh consecutive UFC victory with a third-round knockout of former title challenger Gilbert Burns to move up to No. 5 in the UFC welterweight rankings.

Shavkat Rakhmonov, who rounds out the top three in the division, is riding a streak of six early wins in the UFC, finishing former UFC welterweight title challenger Stephen Thompson with a rear-naked choke in the second round in his last fight.
