Islam Makhachev he is on his way to fight against Dan hooker on October 30 in UFC 267 and dreams of doing it one day before Conor mcgregor. This according to his manager, Ali abdelaziz, who took advantage of a social media post by the Irish star to send a message to his client (via Twitter), who has expressed the same interest on several occasions.
Islam Makhachev dreams of fighting Conor McGregor
«This is what you dream about every night, you know I know«.
Obviously it is one more way for Abdelaziz to sell that future fight than right now it’s too early to happen. Not even with Makhachev defeating Hooker. But who knows what may happen in the future. Perhaps McGregor wants revenge on Khabib Nurmagomedov by defeating his best student. Although at the same time losing would be even harder.
