“He is my big brother” – Islam Makhachev compared to Khabib Nurmagomedov

Islam Maxachev will return this weekend to host Tiago Moises at UFC Vegas 31, with many looking forward to another great victory for the Russians.

Before the fight, Islam Makhachev answered many questions about his relationship with Habib. In a recent interview, he expressed his views on comparing himself and the Eagle.

Asked if the comparison with Habib was outrageous, Makhachev said:

“No, because he is [Khabib] champion. It’s not just a champion, it’s my big brother. Now he is also my coach. Throughout my entire professional career, he has been my sparring partner. ”

Speaking about Islam Nurmagomedov’s motivational abilities:

“He always pushes everyone and we need to practice more. He always told me “you will be a champion”. I just have to train hard. ”

Khabib Nurmagomedov retired last year with a 29-0 unbeaten record in professional wrestling. Since then, we’ve heard a lot from Russia about future stars who could be the “next Habib”. Many agreed that Islam Makhachev was the natural heir of the Russians.

How good can Islam Makhachev be?

We’ve all known for a long time that Islam Makhachev could have been the next big thing, and against Moises he had to prove it in a big way.

So instead of piling Nurmagomedov for comparison, maybe it’s time to let him out there and stand on his own two feet?

He’s not capable of that anyway, but there’s very little room for error in the lightweight category. He talks about being able to fight for a 155-pound belt next year, and the captioned picture looks so incredibly crowded right now that it’s heartwarming to see it happen.

Islam Makhachev begins to combine all the parts of his game; we saw this in his last meeting against Drew Dober. If he could keep up the tension against Moises, fans could have seen something special on Saturday night.
