Islam Makhachev responded to Dana White and impressed many

The bad news for Islam Makhachev came today from Dana White. Namely, the UFC president claims that the Dagestani refused the match against Rafael dos Anjos and that he will now have to achieve another victory, before attacking the lightweight belt.

Rafael Fiziev canceled his performance against the Brazilian, and although Makhachev soon offered himself as a replacement, no deal was finally reached and Renato Moicano is a replacement fighter. The impression is that the UFC leader did not like it and said in an interview with May Mom's Basement: "I like Islam's fight against Dariush.

Since he refused this fight, we will re-organize the fight against Dariush. I'm dying to see that fight. And then we'll see what if Dariush passes. It will be very interesting." We remind you that Makhachev was supposed to fight Beneil Dariush last weekend, but Dariush canceled the match due to injury.


Bobby Green jumped on the "short notice", Makhachev celebrated with ease and hoped he had done everything necessary to be next in line to attack the title. However, it seems that the victory against the unranked Bobby Green will not be enough, although this is the tenth consecutive victory for Makhachev.

Still, the 30-year-old Makhachev doesn’t seem to despair because he will have to play another match before attacking the belt currently held by Charles Oliveira. Namely, Islam took to Twitter today and confidently said: "I don’t care who you will put in front of me, I’ll smash this whole division"

White on Makhachev

As for the failed deal between dos Anjos and Makhachev, White said he thought it was a done deal and had gone to bed.

However, when he woke up in the morning, Makhachev reportedly refused to fight. Islam also referred to these allegations. "Dana, you went to bed to early, you gotta stay up late to get things done" Makhachev wrote.

In any case, the RDA and Moicano will settle this weekend, while Makhachev will wait for the return of Beneil Dariush. All of this builds on Dana White’s recent statements. The UFC president has said there is a possibility that Conor McGregor will be the next challenger after Oliveira and Gaethje finish their match in the fifth month.

It’s hard to believe that Dana is actually punishing Makhachev for not agreeing to two matches a week apart. The chances of him making room for his pet and biggest star are much higher. Islam Makhachev will be a tough job for anyone
