In the past, both the Brazilian and Islam Makhachev were scheduled to fight three times, which never say the day of light.
In fact, they were supposed to fight the Dagestani prior to Rafael dos Anjos’ match against another veteran fighter Renato Carneiro at UFC 272. But the Brazilian claimed Makhachev had turned down the match right before the scheduled date, almost at the last minute.
The former lightweight champ Charles Oliveira and The Dagestani fought the match of UFC 280, where Makhachev became the undisputed champion of the lightweight division, stunning the audience.
FYI, Charles Oliveira bags the highest submission victories in the UFC (16). Islam Makhachev’s submission win against Oliveira astounded and impressed fans of the sport.
