Makhachkala, September 3, 2014. Daghestani MMA fighter Islam Makhachev, who is ready to try his hand with leading world's promotion companies, is going to start talks only late November after the world combat sambo championships in Japan, Makhachev’s coach Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov told RIA "Dagestan".
"As of today, Islam’s contract with M-1is over. He may sign a contract with a foreign MMA League only after the world combat sambo championships. Islam is a uniform fighter, so now his goal is UFC," said Nurmagomedov.
September 7, Islam Makhachev will participate in the M-1 Challenge 51 Fight Spirit tournament in Kolpino. His fight against Croatia’s Ivica Trusecka will be the last one in his M-1 career. "Islam is a free agent, yet he will participate in the upcoming tournament in Kolpino on the initiative of M-1," the coach added.
Young undefeated and promising Islam Mahachev had his latest professional fight on June 7 at the M-1 Challenge 49 tournament "Battle in the Mountains-3". He won his bout with MMA veteran Yuri Ivlev by a submission hold.
