Trainer of the legendary St. Pierre admired Makhachev's work in the fight with Porier

Firas Zahabi, trainer of the legendary George St. Pierre commented on Islam Makhachev's victory over Dustin Porier.

"Before the victorious choke, he held a similar club swing to a golf swing. You very rarely see that in MMA. Why? Because who would think of going into a one-legged translation but only use the ankle. That's what Makhachev did - nobody does that in MMA. I personally see this in the UFC for the first time. He probably does it regularly in the gym. Maybe he likes this maneuver. He coolly pulled it off when he felt that Porier tired," - quotes Zahabi MMA News.

We will remind, Makhachev "smothered" Puryear in the fifth round of the main fight of UFC 302.
