Makhachev about the first golden gloves in UFC history: “I will put them in a frame with the belt”

UFC lightweight champion Islam Makhachev declared that he would keep the golden gloves in which he would fight against the Americans Dustin Poirier June 2.

The promotion’s management introduced golden gloves for champions in title fights; Makhachev will be the first to wear them in the Octagon.

– You are the first fighter in history to wear golden gloves. You have already tried them, trained on them. What is their main advantage compared to the previous model?

— I didn’t really see the difference. I felt they were harder. They don’t allow you to fully open your hand so your fingers aren’t pointing forward. And so, it’s the same thing. But I’m going to put them in a frame. With a belt. Like the first UFC golden gloves. I think that means a lot.

– Will you keep it for yourself?

– I think so. I have never left him until now. After the fight, they immediately take it away – the boys or anyone who asks. But I think I’ll keep them for myself,” Makhachev said, as quoted by Sport24.
