Islam Makhachev is getting ready for a high-stakes fight against Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 284 on February 11. Makhachev was just recently found at Rottnest Island, where he was seen riding a bike and having a good time. However, pictures of him and his colleagues feeding quokkas, a little wallaby-like marsupial, have actually considering that been erased from social networks. Quokkas need to not be fed, considering that human food can trigger severe health issue, and physical contact is off-limits. Failing to comply with the law can lead to prosecution and as much as A$10,000 (£5,500, $7,500) in fines. Makhachev was likewise captured on video feeding a quokka in the most current episode of the UFC’s Embedded Vlog series. Khabib Nurmagomedov, Makhachev’s coach and training partner, has actually declared that Volkanovski will be a harder test than Charles Oliveira. American Kickboxing Academy head coach Javier Mendez has actually refuted claims that Makhachev is not taking his challenger seriously, specifying that he is raising his training in order to fulfill the obstacle.
