Makhachkala, January 21, 2018. The 26-year-old fighter from Dagestan Islam Mahachev defeated Habib Nurmagomedov’s former rival - Brazilian Gleason Tybau in his fifth fight in the UFC.
Tybau’s last fight in the Octagon dated November 2015 when he beat his compatriot Abel Trujillo.

Earlier, in 2012, Habib fought with Gleason and won by a unanimous decision. Last night at the tournament in Boston Makhachev managed to win ahead of time. His confrontation with the 34-year-old veteran of the MMA with a solid track record opened the evening. It was a very short fight. The opponents spent less than a minute in the octagon, when Abdulmanap Nurmagomedov’s trainee sent Tybau to the floor by powerful blow from the left hand.

For Makhachev, this victory was the fourth in the UFC with one defeat. He has a series of three consecutive successful fights. Worth to say, it was Islam’s first victory by knockout. Before, he debuted with strangulation twice by unanimous decisions of the judges - by.

Dagestani wrestler, like his friend Habib Nurmagomedov, performs in lightweight - up to 70 kg, but is not included in the best mixfighters’ rating list. In an interview after the victory over Tibau, Mahachev just expressed readiness to meet with a rival from the top list. Perhaps after such an impressive victory over his opponent, who rarely allowed himself to be knocked out during his long career, Islam will manage to get a rating opponent.
