Who’s next for Makachev?… Volca “Let’s play what people want” Poirier “Did you call me?”
Who will be the next opponent for UFC lightweight champion Islam Makhachev (31, Russia)? Alexander Volkanovski (35, Australia) and Dustin Poirier (32, USA) reacted to Makachev’s tweet saying, “Who’s next?”
On the 22nd (local time), Makachev posted on his Twitter, “Who is next?” He is asking who will fight him.
Makhachev fought Volkanovski for the lightweight title at UFC 284 at the RAC Arena in Perth, Australia on the 12th, winning a five-round decision먹튀검증. The match was evenly matched, but the referee sided with Makachev.
