Khabib was not sure about the victory of Makhachev over Volkanovski
“Before this fight, Khabib called me and said: “Coach, I am very worried about this fight. Alex is really cool and I care about Islam." I replied that everything is fine, we will win this fight. I did not know how easy or difficult it would be, but I was sure of the outcome in our direction. I told Khabib: “I understand your concern, but don’t worry.” And it really turned out to be a super difficult fight, ”Mendez said on the Jibber with Jaber podcast.
Recall that on February 12 at UFC 284, Makhachev defeated Volkanovski by unanimous decision in a close fight. It is expected that the Russian will defend his title in October.
