Islam Makhachev is prepared to engage in combat in the first part of 2024. This is encouraging for the increasing number of competitors vying to challenge the UFC Lightweight Champion. Charles Oliveira is the top challenger, followed by Justin Gaethje, who is vying for the top place, and a group of ravenous wolves vying for position in the Top 10 before Ramadan.

Islam Makhachev has said that he intends to compete in the UFC at least three times in 2024, confirming preparations for a hectic fighting schedule that year.

Can Islam Keep Up With The Fights Irrespective Of Ramadan Fast

Islam Makhachev is preparing for a highly anticipated 2024, with three UFC bouts planned, one of which will take place before Ramadan. The lightweight champion of the UFC is excited to defend his championship against competitors like Justin Gaethje and Charles Oliveira. After a spell of inaction, Makhachev takes the initiative, stating that he is eager to go back into the octagon. Fans will be waiting impatiently for his next fights because of his tenacity and dedication to a rigorous fight schedule.

Before Ramadan, which falls between March 10 and April 9, 2024, when pious Muslims observe fasting until sundown and frequently skip training, there were first concerns regarding Makhachev’s availability. Nonetheless, Islam Makhachev recently disclosed his audacious ambitions for a busy next year on a Russian news program.

“Well, I’m planning to fight before Ramadan,” Makhachev said. “I already informed the UFC that I’m ready to fight before Ramadan, I would like to have time to do three fights in 2024. I will train as much as possible, constantly keep in shape, and wait for a call from the management.”

The current lightweight champion, Islam Makhachev, gained notoriety at the October UFC 294 event in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Using a combination of blows and a high kick, he defeated featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski in the first round, achieving an incredible win. 

Now regarded as the best pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC, Islam Makhachev is looking forward to his next challenges after resolving his dispute with Volkanovski. In the lightweight class, he may go up against competitors like Mateusz Gamrot, Charles Oliveira, and Justin Gaethje. Makhachev has stated that he is interested in stepping up to welterweight to try for a second belt, maybe by the end of 2024, even if he is concentrating on these opponents.
