Mixed martial arts coach Javier Mendez expressed his opinion about Russian fighter of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Islam Makhachev. His words are reported by MMAFighting.

At the end of October, in Abu Dhabi, Makhachev faced Oliveira in a lightweight title fight at UFC 280. The Russian athlete scored a landslide victory by performing a choke in the second round.
As part of the UFC, this victory was his 11th in a row. In total, Makhachev held 24 fights in his professional activity.
He suffered the only defeat from the Brazilian Adrian Martins at the UFC 192 tournament. By the end of the 2nd minute of the fight, Martins knocked out the opponent.
