Islam Makhachev is another rising star from the Dagestan stable and there is a lot of hype around the 29-year-old.
Many have already claimed that he is better than Khabib Nurmagomedov, and the pair have been training for a while.
The 29-year-old has impressed in his short time in the UFC and here is more about his net worth, family and MMA record.
Islam Makhachev has earned more than $300,000 thanks to his fighting career and has a net worth of $500,000 in the year 2021.
The Russian also earned a massive $105,000 in his last fight against Drew Dober, where he recorded another win.
Makhachev also earned $49,000 in his fight against $49,000, and he should keep on earning a lot over the years since he is hitting his prime.
Islam Makhachev currently has an MMA record of 19 wins and one loss. He also has a record of eight wins and one loss in his UFC career.
Islam, like Khabib Nurmagomedov, started his MMA career in Russian and Ukraine. He fought several talents in those countries and amassed an 11-0 record before coming to the UFC.
The Russian won his debut fight in the UFC with ease. However, Makhachev lost his next one to Adriano Martins thanks to a crazy KO.
Makhachev has been exceptional since that loss and currently is on a seven-fight win streak. He defeated Davi Ramos and more recently got the better of Drew Dober.
There isn’t a lot known about Islam Makhachev regarding his family but in an interview he confirmed he had elder brothers and also hid information about his heart surgery from his mother, initially.
However, the big talking point is how he is related to Khabib Nurmagomedov. While the pair are not related, they have been together for a long time and have trained together since they were children.
Khabib and Islam are friends and the pair have even trained under Khabib’s father, Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov.
The pair still train together under Javier Mendez and Khabib also was the cornerman when Makhachev fought Dober.
The pair are still best friends and their bond seems to be incredibly strong.
The last fight for Islam Makhachev saw him defeat Drew Dober in exceptional fashion.
While Makhachev called out Tony Ferguson and is ready to take on anyone in the UFC Lightweight division, there is no confirmation on who Islam will fight next.
