Fight “If King Kong can make 155…” – Khabib Nurmagomedov reacts as UFC 294 Islam Makhachev vs Alexander Volkanovski clash is confirmed

Khabib Nurmagomedov accepts that Islam Makhachev will deal with any individual who can make 155 pounds, following fresh insight about his conflict with Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 294.

‘The Hawk’ as of late shared his contemplations on the difference in rival, after Charles Oliveira had to pull out from the session yesterday subsequent to getting a frightful cut over his eye.

Volkanovski will take on Islam Makhachev in an amazing rematch of their UFC 284 conflict, which occurred in February. ‘The Incomparable’ was barely crushed through consistent choice, and will expect to set things straight at UFC 294 one weekend from now.

Khabib Nurmagomedov as of late shared his considerations on Islam Makhachev versus Alexander Volkanovski, and said this:

“If somebody can make 155, and the UFC say this guy is a contender, who cares? It doesn’t matter. Brother, if King Kong can make 155, okay bring this guy here. Doesn’t matter”

He continued:

“I told Islam today, brother it doesn’t matter, you are the world champion. Volk, Charles, Poirier or Justin, it doesn’t matter brother. It’s supposed to be Charles? He pulled out, but we already beat him and we don’t care about this. But if they want Volk again, first fight was very good, very competitive fight. But we know, and their team knows we won a unanimous decision. Not even a split decision. Volk was looking good in the fight, but he lost.”

Khabib Nurmagomedov’s statement referring to Lord Kong originates from his utilization of the line before his title battle against Al Iaquinta at UFC 223.

Iaquinta was a late-notice substitution, after Tony Ferguson had to pull out from the challenge because of a knee injury.

Will Khabib Nurmagomedov be in Islam Makhachev’s corner at UFC 294?

Khabib Nurmagomedov declared that he would be resigning from his job as a MMA mentor in the start of 2023.

‘The Hawk’ is yet to make a return as a mentor, yet many contemplated whether Islam Makhachev’s title battle at UFC 294 would be a sufficiently huge motivation for him to return.

Javier Mendez, lead trainer at the American Kickboxing Foundation (Otherwise known as), was as of late inquired as to whether Khabib Nurmagomedov would be in Makhachev’s corner at UFC 294.

Mendez has instructed both ‘The Falcon’ and Makhachev for north of 10 years, and offers a decent connection with the pair.

He seemed to affirm that Nurmagomedov wouldn’t be in participation at UFC 294 during a meeting with Accommodation Radio. Mendez said this:

“No I probably don’t think so, I think he has made his [decision]. He doesn’t even want us talking about it, because everybody knows. Unless he changes it from him, you’ll hear it from him. You won’t hear it from me”
