— ESPN MMA (@espnmma) August 3, 2021
A lot of hype surrounding Islam Makhachev mainly because he is the teammate of former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. Many say that he is the heir of the throne as Khabib said that Islam will be the next UFC champion. Islam Makhacehv is just that good that many are
It is also worth knowing that the fight might be a free fight which means a non-PPV card in the USA. So watching this fight for free is a STEAL, most of the names in this card could headline a fight night event.
As of the moment, UFC 267 now consists of Jan Blachowicz vs Glover Teixeira for the light-heavyweight title and also Petr Yan vs Aljamain Sterling 2 for the bantamweight title. It is a fully stacked main card and it will be a treat to watch for not only hardcore fans but also casual fans. Also worth noting that the rising star Khamzat Chimaev will also fight against Li Jingliang.
Let us just hope that the no fight will be cancelled due to COVID or injuries. If this card happens the way it is scheduled, we might see one of the best UFC cards of the year. It might beat the highest PPV card but in terms of talent and big names, this might be one of the best.
