In 2012, the two strongest featherweights in Europe, Irishman Conor McGregor and Ivan Buchinger from Slovakia, in a battle at the Cage Warriors tournament, found out which of them would go to the UFC and who would stay and terrify the Old World. As a result, McGregor won the victory, as you understand, and the rest of his path is already history.
But the Slovak athlete after that did not know defeat for 3.5 years. He defeated Frodo Khasbulaev, Tural Ragimov, Mairbek Taisumov, Mikhail Malyutin, Sergey Golyaev, Timur Nagibin and many other top athletes in his career. His unspoken nickname was “The Nightmare of Russian Fighters”, as he defeated a large number of our compatriots.
Ivan moved to M-1 Global and won the organization’s featherweight championship belt, and also managed to defeat lightweight Mansour Barnui in a superfight of champions. The one whose fight with Makhachev has already collected 8,000,000 views on our channel. It seemed that there was simply no one to stop the phenomenal Slovak. But still, one fighter has long been waiting for a chance to test his strength in a fight with him.
The champion of Russia in wushu-sanda Magomed Idrisov from the famous Gorets club by the time of the meeting with Buchinger had only six professional fights. Against 36 for the Slovak. But at the same time, in his debut, he crushed the most experienced Alexander Butenko and beat foreign champions Yuri Maya and Max Koga. This fight was supposed to go for the championship belt, but due to the superiority of the Russian fighter, the title was not put on the line. However, the audience was looking forward to the battle between the undefeated Russian prospect and the strongest European fighter.
