Islam Makhachev (19-1) is the ninth ranked UFC Lightweight fighter and he is a red hot fighter looking for that big win to push him into the top five. Makhachev has a strong wrestling and grappling background, and it shows through in his fights. Eight of his eleven finishes have come from a grappling submission, with only a few striking knockouts. 

Makhachev has a seven fight win streak dating back to 2016, and has been steadily climbing the UFC ranks as a result. Will he finally be able to put on the kind of show needed to tempt a top five fighter to accept his challenge?

Thiago Moisés (15-4) is the fourteenth ranked UFC Lightweight fighter, and he’s been on a nice win streak of his own. Moisés is riding a three fight win streak dating back to last May. There was a fourth fight scheduled for last September against Jalin Turner, but Moisés tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, that fight was scrapped. 

Moisés has only been in the UFC a little over three years, and he had a hard time adjusting at first, losing two of his first three fights in the promotion. But he put together an impressive 11-2 record in other promotions, so he has the experience to put up a rough fight against Makhachev.
