Dawson assessed Puryear's chances of beating Makhachev

UFC American lightweight Gran Dawson shared his expectations for the upcoming title fight in his division between champion Islam Makhachev and Dustin Puryear.

"I'm realistic, I'm not stupid. I know how good Makhachev is, how difficult this fight will be for Puryear. However, if there is a guy who can beat Islam, he has to never get tired, have amazing power in his hands and land a beautiful guillotine. Dustin has all three of those qualities. I won't say Makhachev will lose, but Dustin has the qualities to win," Dawson told InsideFight.

Recall that the fight Makhachev - Porier will headline the fight show UFC 302, which will take place on June 1 in Newark, USA.
