UFC head Dana White forgot Makhachev's name
The fight will take place next weekend.
On the night of February 11-12 in Perth, Australia, Russian Islam Makhachev will defend his lightweight title at UFC 284 for the first time.
The day before, UFC President Dana White held a big press conference about the upcoming event, and slightly got into trouble by forgetting the name of the lightweight division champion.
“As for the legacy… If Volkanovski wins, it will be the most important event for him. Well, if ... if he wins ... (laughs). Well, yes…
If, however, he manages to defeat Volkanovski, then this will be an important step in building his great legacy, ”White said at a press conference, unable to remember the name of the Russian fighter.
