During the month of June, former UFC featherweight Makwan Amirkhani resigned from the organization. in this time, he is slated to compete against Mochamed Machaev, a top prospect, in OKTAGON 54, which will take place in Ostrava, Czech Republic. Tipsport, the most prominent betting agency in the country, will be the sponsor of the fight, which will take place in the lightweight division and be judged for a total of one million euros.
Both men will be going into their mixed martial arts (MMA) fight against one another at OKTAGON with different objectives and objectives. There is a turning point in Amirkhani’s professional life. He has been a mixed martial artist for 35 years, and he is getting closer and closer to the end of his athletic career. As an additional point of interest, he is coming off of a huge bad patch, having not been on a winning streak since the year 2019.

Since the Ultimate Fighting Championship decided not to renew his contract, he is currently 2-6 in his previous eight fights. He is determined to break his losing streak and demonstrate that he is still a top-level fighter in his first fight since the UFC made the decision to not renew his contract. Machaev, on the other hand, is only 24 years old, which is more than a decade younger than the Finnish fighter who weighs 135 pounds.
In addition to this, he has an excellent record of 13-1-1, with only one defeat and one no-contest. Machaev is looking forward to the fight with Amirkhani because it will not only give him the opportunity to defeat a former fighter in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), but it will also give him the chance to add a name that is somewhat noteworthy to his record. Fight fans will be quite interested in the outcome of the matchup because of its many outcomes.
For the most part, Amirkhani is a grappler; nevertheless, he does not possess the gas tank that is required for extended grappling sequences because he tires out rather quickly. Machaev, on the other hand, is a wrestler who operates on the offensive and uses volume to dominate his opponents on the mat. The fact that he is not a good defensive wrestler is demonstrated by the fact that he competed against Jaroslav Pokorn.
In the face of an Amirkhani who is intent on dragging him to the ground, this may or may not prove to be his undoing.
