Makhachev called the fight a dream
Islam Makhachev, the UFC lightweight champion, called his dream fight. According to him, such a fight is a fight for the second UFC championship belt.
“The dream fight is for the second belt. This is what motivates me at the moment. The perfect end to a career? Win both belts, defend both. This is the highest degree for me now. I won’t perform until I’m 40, maybe for a couple more years,” Makhachev said.
