Islam Makhachev Analysis: Only lost once in his career

Islam Makhachev (25-1) won 14 fights in the UFC to win the Lightweight Title and the #1 ranking in the Pound-for-Pound division. He will be making his third defense of the title and is riding a 13-fight winning streak. To get to this stage versus Poirier, he has already defeated Bobby Green, Volkanovski (twice), and Oliveira. The Champion has a reach of 70.5 inches and stands 5’10”. Islam Makhachev, who is just starting his illustrious era as champion, will be making his third defense of the championship. Khabib Nurmagomedov, Islam’s cousin, will stand by his side in the corner during this training camp, even if he wasn’t in his corner during the previous fight. This is a big advantage because Khabib faced Dustin Poirier in a similar circumstance as champion, and the result was a submission victory.
