Nurmgomedov considers Makhachev the best fighter in the UFC

Umar Nurmagomedov, a fighter of the UFC's lightweight division, has named the best, in his opinion, fighter of the promotion regardless of weight categories. Umar considers Islam Makhachev, the organization's current lightweight champion, as such.

"I would really like to fight in the same card with Islam. We could do a joint training camp together. Islam is the best UFC fighter regardless of weight classes. And, of course, he could teach me a lot of things," MMA Junkie quotes Nurmagomedov Jr. as saying.

Recall, this morning Umar Nurmagomedov won another victory in the UFC, winning by unanimous decision of judges over debutant Bekzat Almakhan. This confrontation took place in Las Vegas as part of the UFC Fight Night 238 tournament.
