Looks like UFC flyweight Muhammad Mokaev will be next Chamzat Chimaev the UFC, given that they like to call everyone regardless of their status and weight class, a case in point is the UFC bantamweight Sean O’Malley. On his UFC debut in UFC LondonMukaev scored one of the most spectacular wins that an overplayed debutant like himself could have as he submitted Cody Durden within 50 seconds of the very first round.
Mokaev is a veteran of 23 amateur fights fought at international level and lost none before making his professional MMA debut. Prior to his UFC debut, Mokaev came with a perfect record of 6 wins, no losses and 1 no contest. Overall, Mokaev is now 30-0 in his career, at just 21 years old. Mokaev is a UK-based fighter of Russian descent.
Sean O’Malley vs. Muhammad Mokaev, the latter suggesting a fight in the US
In a tweet to UFC Megastar Sean O’Malley, Mokaev wrote on Twitter “Are you available in Vegas on July 2nd? @SugaSeanMMA I’ll finish you off in round one, whatever your weight, I’ll get to your division UK VS USA Round 2 but this time in the USA” Mokaev definitely proved he belongs at the top of the flyweight division with his UFC debut performance, but it seems like Mokaev thinks he has a lot more potential than people could have predicted at this point and could probably take part in a fight as well think at bantamweight.
O’Malley, on the other hand, is having a spectacular 2021 after winning 3 consecutive bantamweight bouts with spectacular knockouts. So far, O’Malley is 8-1 in the UFC with wins Eddie Wineland, Thomas Almeida, Kris Moutinho and Raulian Paiva. Although O’Malley has fought unranked fighters so far, he’s big enough to earn main card spots and sometimes even fight right in front of the co-main. O’Malley has always attracted a large following of young viewers, including Millennials and Gen-Z, who lovingly follow his struggles.
What do you think of Mokaev’s reference to O’Malley? If the fight ever happens, who do you think will win? Do you think O’Malley has reasonable advantages over Mokaev, or will the Anglo-Russian prodigy prove he’s worth more than people realise? Who do you think they should fight next in their respective careers?
