Undefeated UFC prospect Islam Makhachev is scheduled to take on Adriano Martins in a lightweight match this upcoming UFC 192. The event is set this October 3rd and will be held in Houston’s Toyota Center.
Having a flawless MMA professional record of 12-0, Makhachev has already gathered quite a following for his very strong ground game and wrestling skills that helped him score most of his victories inside the Octagon by submission.
This feat isn’t that tricky to accomplish for the 23-year old who’s fighting out of Makhachkala Russia, though.
Islam’s mixed martial arts resumé flaunts that besides being quite proficient in Sanshou, Judo and freestyle wrestling, he’s also bagged the Combat Sambo world champion title several times already. Makhachev is currently affiliated with the FightSpirit Team.
On the other hand, the Brazilian Adriano Martins is known for his quick yet decisive strikes that earned him nearly all of his 27-7 MMA professional slate.
The 33-year old has a few wrestling and ground moves to show off as well. Apart from having a brown belt in Judo, Martins also earned a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Cristiano Carioca. He is presently associated with the American Top Team and Top Life Amazonas.
UFC 192 will be headlined by heavyweights Daniel Cormier and Alexander Gustafsson, and also features bouts from flyweights Joseph Benavidez and Ali Bagautinov, strawweights Rose Namajunas and Angela Hill as well as welterweights Johny Hendricks and Tyron Woodley just to name a few.
