ONE Championship: UFC’s Islam Makhachev tells Christian Lee ‘we’ll see how good you are’ against Saygid Izagakhmaev

Quick Summary

Makhachev (23-1) won lightweight gold with a second-round submission of Charles Oliveira at UFC 280 in October in Abu Dhabi.

It seems that Makhachev still needs some convincing – but the famously loyal Russian may change his tune if Lee beats his teammate Izagakhmaev.

Canadian-American Lee, 24, has long acknowledged Izagakhmaev as a future title challenger, but after his win over Abbasov, seemed more interested in a showdown with the visiting Makhachev.
