UFC President forgot the name of Islam Makhachev

UFC President, Dana White, could not remember the name of Islam Makhachev, discussing the upcoming superfight of the Russian against the Australian Alexander Volkanovski.

“I don’t think it’s ever happened, P4P number one versus number two,” White said at a press conference in Las Vegas. “This is a huge fight and we are already breaking ticket sales and pay-per-view records in Australia and New Zealand. Previously, Conor had this record and it looks like we will break it. It’s a big fight.”

“Legacy-wise, if Volkanovski pulls it off, obviously it’s going to be huge. And if he can do that… hmm… you get the idea… he will be on his way to creating an incredible legacy.”

Earlier, Islam Makhachev, who defends the UFC lightweight championship belt in the upcoming fight, said that the organization could pay more attention to the promotion of this confrontation, which will determine the best fighter of the organization, regardless of the weight category.

Recall that the title fight between Makhachev and Volkanovski will be the main event of the UFC 284 tournament, which will be held February 11 in Perth.
