Should Leon Edwards face Islam Makhachev in a welterweight title fight? What Hasbulla thinks

Hasbulla, a social media sensation, shared his opinions on a probable fight between Leon Edwards and Islam Makhachev. Against Kamaru Usman this past weekend, Edwards successfully made his first championship defence. In a competitive match, “Rocky” prevailed over the former welterweight champion by majority decision. Islam Makhachev, the UFC lightweight champion, called out Edwards after his victory. Makhachev announced his candidature for the chance to perhaps win two championships on Twitter. He stated:

Hasbulla, a popular social media user and a friend of Islam Makhachev, discussed this topic in a recent interview with The Schmo. He said, implying that he didn’t have to move up a weight class:

“Why should he climb if he’s already cool? He is the champion, and everyone is afraid of him.”

It’s important to note that Hasbulla is also from Dagestan. He has developed a strong bond with Islam Makhachev through time, as well as with the UFC. He just inked a contract with the UFC for some promotional tasks as well, and he frequently appears at UFC events.

Islam Makhachev gives his thoughts on Conor McGregor’s return

After they square off as competing coaches in the forthcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter, Conor McGregor is scheduled to make his return to the octagon against Michael Chandler later this year. It should be noted that this will be the Irishman’s first fight in the UFC since July 2021, and there is still talk about him perhaps getting a title chance if he defeats Chandler. Speaking on this, UFC lightweight champion Islam Makhachev has hinted that he is aware that if Conor McGregor defeats Michael Chandler, the UFC will attempt to grant him a shot at the championship.

Makhachev stated the following recently on the WEIGHING IN podcast:

“They attempt to stage the fight, but it isn’t official as of yet, and I doubt Conor is interested in engaging in combat given his excessive drinking and daytime smoking. He simply cannot. TUF adds some interest because everyone has forgotten about him. I’m not sure when he last fought, but if they do, I anticipate a 170 pound limit. Maybe they’ll attempt to push him and make 155 if he defeats Chandler. They want to give him a shot at the title, I know that.”
