Alexander Bokulev. The Russian fighter of the mixed single combats Islam Makhachev said that the UFC doesn’t give him top opponents, answering the question of his close friend Habib Nurmagomedov – the League champion in the lightweight division.

“I have a series of six victories, and yet the fighting tops. The UFC obviously doesn’t want to give me the top contenders that I didn’t win contenders (for the title). But next year I would like to fight someone from the top 10, then top 5, then I will have to wait for Habib to end his career to fight for the belt,” said Makhachev, answering the question Nurmagomedov about his future plans.

28-year-old Makhachev stands in the UFC in 2015 in the same division with Nurmagomedov. On account of the Russian fighter 18 wins in mixed martial arts and one defeat, he takes the 15th place in the ranking of light-weight.
