The next big thing in MMA can literally come from anywhere! Born and raised in the mountainous region of Dagestan at the southernmost tip of Russia, Islam Makhachev had nothing handed to him. Every chance and every opportunity required discipline and hard work – and the will to fight. As a youth, Islam perfected his skills in the Russian-bred grappling sport known as combat sambo and rose all the way to the top: In 2016, his special talent earned the gold medal in the World Combat Sambo Championship. From there, he followed his idol and mentor Khabib Nurmagomedov into the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), and the rest is history: Through a series of spectacular victories, knockouts, and submissions, Islam earned a shot to fight for the vacant UFC Lightweight Championship title against Brazilian Charles Oliveira – and took home the win. But his unbroken victory streak and several ‘Fight of the Night’ bonuses aren’t enough. Islam wants to go down in history as the greatest pound-for-pound fighter the UFC has ever seen. And the way things are playing out, he’ll prove hard to stop. This is history in the making!
