Is Islam khabib brother?

Khabib Nurmagomedov will be a big part of Saturday's UFC main event when he corners his longtime training partner Islam Makhachev against Thiago Moises. ... But this guy's late, but this Saturday he has to prove himself and show the world who is Islam Makhachev, not only Khabib's sparring partner or Khabib's brother.

Makhachev’s latest victory over Moises further helped elevate his stock in the stacked Lightweight division. Makhachev was dominant for the first three rounds of the fight, never letting up from the opening bell before eventually sinking in the fight-ending submission in the fourth round. Once again, he used his wrestling to overpower Moises, which he set up with his ever-improving striking. The win should be good enough to move him up a few spots in the Top 10. It also has to set him up for a bigger fight in his next outing, perhaps against Rafael dos Anjos. Makhachev is the real deal and slowly but surely he is climbing the 155-pound ladder in an attempt to pick up where his mentor and training partner, Khabib Nurmagomedov, left off.

Gamrot added to his winning ways after he ran right over long-time veteran Jeremy Stephens, submitting him in the first round via kimura. Had “Lil’ Heathen” not tapped when he did, he could have been spending some time in the hospital ... it was that tight. For Gamrot, this is his second straight win inside the Octagon after coming up short in his Octagon debut against Guram Kutateladze, which he lost via razor-thin split decision. Aside from picking up perhaps his biggest win against an established veteran, the American Top Team (ATT)-trained fighter also went home with an extra $50,000 in post-fight bonus cash.

After five years away from action, Tate didn’t skip a beat in her comeback fight against Reneau. After a slow start that was to be expected, Tate started to get her feet under her and found her groove. She went to her roots and used her wrestling to stifle Reneau, who was taking part in the final fight of her combat career. In the third and final round, Tate managed to take down her foe and pound her out to score a technical knockout win. With the victory, Tate snaps her two-fight losing skid and steps on the winner’s podium for the first time since March 2016. Now, she just needs to win two more times in a 12-month span to equal the six-figure salary she left behind to return to the cage.

Coming into the event, Stephens earned our spot on “Who Needs A Win Badly” given the fact that “Lil’ Heathen” hasn’t had his hand raised inside the Octagon in more than three years, losing four of his previous five fights. The other bout was a “No Contest” against Yair Rodriguez. Stephens’ woes only increased last night in “Sin City” because his cold streak was extended after Gamrot submitted the power-packing slugger in just 65 seconds via kimura (see it again here). So to recap: Stephens has lost three in a row and five of his last six inside the Octagon. What the future holds for him is unclear because he is a fan-favorite and always brings it. Whether or not that is good enough to convince UFC officials to keep him on the roster following his numerous setbacks remains to be seen.

Islam Makhachev vows to prove Tony Ferguson is NOT at the same level as Khabib Nurmagomedov

Daily Mail 18 July, 2021 - 10:01am

By Richard Martin For Mailonline

Islam Makhachev wants to face Tony Ferguson next to prove the US fighter is not in the same league as his mentor Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The Russian stretched his unbeaten streak to eight with a resounding win over Thiago Moises in Las Vegas on Saturday but no sooner had he taken care of the Brazilian, he was setting his sights on his next opponent.

'If they were to give me a choice, let's do it with Tony because we have good history with him,' Makhachev told reporters after beating Moises in the fourth round via submission.

Islam Makhachev beat Thiago Moises and wants to face Tony Ferguson in his next fight

Ferguson was scheduled to face Makhachev's mentor Khabib Nurmagomedov but never did

Khabib, who was in Vegas to support Makhachev, never met Ferguson in the cage during his incredible, unbeaten career.

Ferguson, 37, was widely regarded as one of the best 155 pound fighters around and seen as one of the few people capable of beating Khabib.

The pair were scheduled to face each other on five occasions but the fight everyone in UFC craved never saw the light of day before Khabib retired in October with an unblemished 29-0 record.

And Makhachev referred to his mentor's unfinished business with Ferguson, pledging to do Khabib's bidding against him.

Khabib, who retired last October on 29-0, watched Makhachev beat Moises in Las Vegas.

'I'm going to finish this. I'm going to show Tony is not at Khabib's level,' said Makhachev

'Khabib was supposed to fight with him like five, six times. Let's finish this, you know,' he said.

'I'm going to finish this. I'm going to show Tony not Khabib level. People don't understand how Khabib pressures.'

Makhachev, 29, praised Khabib as a 'humble guy' and said he had many of the same qualities as him and was almost as good a fighter.

'If somebody says I'm almost the same as Khabib, I agree with this,' Makhachev added.

'I want to be like Khabib, you know. He's a great man, he's champion, he has a lot of money and he has everything, but he's still a humble guy.

'He's coming to U.S. without his family. He stays here one, two months to help us. He doesn't take money, nothing. He just comes and does the whole thing. We came to U.S. and he rent big house for team and a lot of cars for team and nobody pay. He pay for everything. I cannot explain Khabib. He does a lot of stuff, but not everyone knows this.'

Islam Makhachev calls out Michael Chandler: “You come from Bellator, I want to check your skills"

BJPENN.COM 18 July, 2021 - 08:47am

UFC lightweight contender Islam Makhachev called out Michael Chandler, saying that “you come from Bellator, I want to check your skills.”

Makhachev defeated Thiago Moises in the main event of UFC Vegas 31 via fourth-round submission, and it was the type of statement win that should earn the No. 9 ranked lightweight in the UFC a step up in competition. Following his win over Moises, Makhachev took the mic and called out Rafael dos Anjos, the former UFC lightweight champion. But in his post-event interview with reporter Heidi Androl, Makhachev used it as an opportunity to call out Chandler, the former Bellator lightweight champion turned UFC fighter and analyst.

"Chandler, if you hear me, let's go, let's do this. You come from Bellator, I want to check your skills."@MAKHACHEVMMA calls out @MikeChandlerMMA, who's watching from the #UFCVegas31 post-show set 😬 pic.twitter.com/pAhZ7UOyTI

“Everybody. I see here Michael Chandler, why not? Let’s go Chandler. You come to UFC now, you come from Bellator, I want to give you hard time. Let’s do this. Chandler, if you hear me, let’s go. Let’s do this. You come from Bellator, I want to check your skills,” Makhachev said.

Chandler was in the UFC analyst studio and was able to immediately respond to the callout from Makhachev, although he didn’t necessarily say yes or no right away to the proposal.

“Slick little call out right there. But he did what he said he was going to do tonight and he did what he needed to do tonight, which was to go out there and put a big stamp on his performance. And now he’s doing what he needs to do, as well. He’s sitting at No. 9, he wants to say as many names as he possibly can. Slick little callout, man. The man impressed tonight. he did a phenomenal job against a very tough man. The kid’s got a very bright future and we’ll see what happens,” Chandler said of Makhachev.
