After changing opponents, Makhachev said: “What does the title of UFC champion mean? It means you are the best in the world. And if you’re the best in the world, it doesn’t matter who stands in front of you. What can I say ? Refuse? Never. Let’s do it.”

White asked to immortalize a quote from a Russian fighter on the walls of the UFC Apex arena in Las Vegas (USA).

Last October, Makhachev defeated Oliveira and won the lightweight belt; in February, the Russian defeated Volkanovski by unanimous decision and defended his title.
