Habib Nurmagamedov – perhaps the greatest MMA fighter of all time – says TMZ Sports his friend and protégé, Islam Makhachevmay ultimately be the best fighter!
“Definitely, it’s possible. You know, now it’s like a hereditary struggle for Islam. Why I really want it to fight against. Charles Oliveirabecause he had a series of 11 wins and the UFC has never had such a fight. 11 wins against 10 wins. It is assumed that I am against it Tony [Ferguson]. Well, it never was. Now we have Islam against Charles. Let these guys fight. “
“When Islam defeats Charles and then he defeats new blood, as from the younger generation, we have a lot of young fighters in the lightweight rankings. Beneil [Dariush], Islam defeated Charles, Islam defeated three more fighters, he could become the greatest in lightweight. He has that potential. He’s only 30, but the UFC should give him a chance. “
It was the undefeated (29-0) response of UFC legends when we asked if the 30-year-old Makhachkov could be the best mixed martial arts boyar.
Islam is a lightweight UFC with a $ 4 rating … and its absolutely impossible to stop since its only professional loss in 2015.
Makhachou scored 10 victories in a row … beat the guys like Dan Hooker and Drew Dober on the road.

Habib may have left the fight, he all that he could not, did not resign. In fact it FC “Eagle”. The MMA promotion has a huge card on Friday night featuring several MMA legends.
Junior shower Santos fights Jorgan de Castro … and Tiaga Silva fights Hector Lombard.
“It’s definitely the biggest card in Eagle FC history,” Habib told us.
