Islam Makhachev Form


Islam Makhachev has climbed to #9 in the lightweight rankings thanks to an eight-fight win streak.

The 29-year-old Russian suffered an early setback in his UFC career when he was knocked out in one round by Adriano Martins in his second fight.

He bounced back with a couple of decision wins over Chris Wade and Nik Lentz before stopping veteran Gleison Tibau in 57 seconds.

Another first-round stoppage followed as he submitted Kajan Johnson to an armbar, and he took his streak to six straight wins with decision successes against Arman Tsarukyan and Davi Ramos.

Makhachev had a lengthy layoff after that, not fighting for 18 months, but he made up for lost time in March by submitting Drew Dober in the third round.

Makhachev now possesses a professional record of 19-1, with three victories coming via knockout and eight by submission. His sole loss came via knockout.

Thiago Moises Form


Thiago Moises earned himself a shot on Dana White’s Contender Series by compiling a 10-2 record on the minor scene.

Moises landed a UFC deal with a first-round knockout of Gleidson Cutis, but his momentum stalled with decision defeats in two of his next three fights.

The 26-year-old Brazilian stopped the rot with a second-round submission of Michael Johnson.

He then bested Bobby Green and Alexander Hernandez over three rounds in back-to-back unanimous decision wins.

Moises now has a 15-4 professional record, with three wins coming by knockout and six via submission.
