Khabib Nurmagomedov announced at the beginning of the year that he would be leaving his life as a coach in order to spend his time with his family and this was later confirmed by his team. Nurmagomedov last graced Islam Makhachev’s side in his fight against Charles Oliveira and since then he has been absent from the corner.

‘The Eagle’ has consistently asserted that Makhachev will face a significant challenge when taking on Oliveira after his initial victory, as he now has nothing to lose. This sentiment has even been acknowledged by the current champion. The pressure on Makhachev to replicate and carry on Nurmagomedov’s legacy may have been distracting him from his training. However, with his return to support Islam Makhachev, things are expected to change for both Makhachev and Oliveira.

Former Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is expecting a challenging fight for both Islam Makhachev and Charles Oliveira. He adds that Makhachev will be facing a tougher challenge, a tougher fighter in the form of Charles Oliviera. ‘The Eagle’ is of the notion that ‘Do Bronx’ has reached a point where he has nothing left to lose. While having an interview, the former champion stated,

“There will be more risks for Islam. Oliveria has nothing to lose. He has already lost. I think it won’t be an easy fight for both of them. For Islam, the second fight will be more difficult than the first. This is my purely personal opinion.”
