Fiziev warned coach Volkanovski about Makhachev's kicks

UFC lightweight Rafael Fiziev commented on the early defeat Alexa Volkanovski in a rematch with Islam Makhachev. According to Rafael, he warned one of Volkanovski’s coaches that Islam had gotten good kicks.

“Exactly the day before I wrote to coach Volkanovski, we have the same wrestling coach, Frank Hickman, I’ve been working with him for a long time too. I wrote to him that Makhachev had very good kicks. Because, I looked, he works with Thai boxers, with world champions. There is one guy, Magomed Zainukov, when I fought at the world championship, I remember seeing him, he was shining. He has good Thai boxing, he simply destroyed the Thais. I see him working with him, his kicks have become really good. Progressed a lot. That’s when I wrote to them: “Hey, look, he’ll be working with his feet on the floors. It will work very well. Pay attention to the kicks." And he: “Yes, bro, everything is clear with us.”

Let us remind you that Makhachev knocked out Volkanovski with a high kick in the rematch.
