Islam Makhachev Taps out Drew Dober ….Wants to Fight Tony Fegurson Next

With a chance to shine on the UFC 259 main card, Islam Makhachev has proven that the hype around him is very real. Following the high praise of teammate and close friend Khabib Nurmagomedov on Saturday night, Makhachev displayed a sultry showdown against Drew Dober, pushing him away with an arm triangle that ended at 1:37 in the third round. After Nurmagomedov announced his retirement last year, he has apparently handed the torch to Makhachev and looks set to play for the throne after taking his seventh consecutive win overall. “I know he deserved one of the top five years ago,” Makhachev said after securing the win. “I can’t calm down now. I need a top man. I know Tony Ferguson is free. I’ll be ready for everyone. Please. Give me one.” It took only a minute in the fight for Makhachev to grab a leg and make Dober fall onto the canvas. A suffocating hunter, Makhachev was quick to begin putting pressure on Dober to advance his position. Makhachev managed to get to mount and eventually side control before searching deep for a crossbar, but Dober struggled until he finally broke free from submission.
