Islam Makhachev includes himself in the top 5 MMA fighting fighters

Reigning UFC lightweight champion Islam Makhachev of Russia named the top 5 fighters in mixed martial arts at the moment.

We have a P4P fighter ranking, it's rightfully headed by Alex Volkanovski, followed by Israel Adesanya. I think these lists are made by professionals. Kamaru Usman would also be in the top 3. Next, I always put Demetrious Johnson in the top, even though he's already retired from the UFC. And I'm ranked third right now.

Makhachev next time he will step into the octagon against Alex Volkanovski at UFC 284, which is scheduled for February 12 in Perth, Australia.

Makhachev had his last fight against Brazilian Charles Oliveira last October at UFC 280. Islam won that fight by choking in the second round.

Last February, Makhachev met with Bobby Green of the United States at UFC Vegas 49. That fight ended in favor of Islam by TKO in the first round. On his account he has 23 wins and one loss.
