Tsarukyan: "I will knock out Makhachev"

UFC top Armenian lightweight Arman Tsarukyan reacted to division champion Islam Makhachev's remarks after his win over Charles Oliveira.

"Be ready. See you soon, boy," Makhachev wrote on social media X.

"See you soon, boy," Tsarukyan responded at a press conference after the UFC 300 tournament. - I'm ready to fight Islam in the middle or late summer, I'll need two to three weeks to recover because I've been training non-stop since December, I need some rest and then have a full training camp and beat Makhachev.

After our first fight I had 10 more fights, I didn't lose after that. That was five years ago, since then I've gained experience, improved my skills. With every camp I'm getting stronger, I can feel it. I'm going to beat Islam, and it doesn't matter how exactly. The best scenario is a knockout."
