The self-proclaimed pound-for-pound best grappler in the world has a bold prediction for UFC 294.
On only 11 days notice, Islam Makhachev and Alexander Volkanovski will run it back the following end of the week (Sat., Oct. 21, 2023) at UFC 294 in Abu Dhabi following their amazing first experience at UFC 284 recently in Feb.
Volkanovski consented to step in after Charles Oliveira experienced a terrible cut on his eyebrow in his last round of instructional course fighting – discuss horrendous karma.
While the blended hand to hand fighting (MMA) people group expects another five-round banger, Volkanovski’s BJJ mentor, Craig Jones, accepts “The Incomparable” will tap Makhachev with an exceptionally uncommon accommodation.
“In this way, clearly, Islam cherishes the arm triangle; assuming that he attempted to pull any of that bulls — t, he is going straight into a buggy stifle,” Jones told Accommodation Radio. “He loves to take the back from turtle – assuming he attempted any of that s — t, he’s getting knee banished. So I think any place it goes, he’s getting submitted.”
The featherweight champion presently can’t seem to submit anybody in his UFC up to this point, yet he has three accommodation wins to his name – simply back on the territorial scene. On the other hand, Makhachev has never been submitted in his expert vocation.
Likewise, there has never been an effective buggy gag in the UFC, in spite of the fact that featherweight Sean Woodson nearly secured one back at UFC 278. If Volkanovski somehow happened to pull it off, his mentor would get the credit.
