Zahabi named the most dangerous opponent for Makhachev
Armenian UFC lightweight Arman Tsarukyan is currently the only fighter in the division who has a real chance of defeating the champion Islam Makhachev. This opinion was expressed by the eminent Canadian coach Firas Zahabi.
Let us remind you that last weekend Tsarukyan knocked out Beneil Dariush in the first round.
“Tsarukyan makes me believe that he can defeat Islam. I'm excited about the lightweight division right now. I hope they get a rematch. Arman does not get the recognition he deserves.
He has three wins in a row, he lost to Gamrot, but it was a very close fight. Armand defeated Aubin-Mercier, Ramos, Frevola, Giagos, Alvarez, Ismagulov, Silva, and now also knocked out Dariush. There is no other fighter in this division who makes me think that he can beat Makhachev,” MMA News quotes Zahabi as saying.
