Looks like UFC Flyweight Muhammad Mokaev will be the next Khamzat Chimaev of the UFC, considering he likes to call out everyone no matter their status and weight class, case in point, UFC bantamweight Sean O’Malley. At his UFC debut in UFC London, Mukaev pulled one of the most spectacular victories a hyped-up debutant like him could have when he submitted Cody Durden within 50 seconds of the very first round.

Mokaev is a veteran of 23 amateur fights fought at international level, losing none of them before making his professional MMA debut. Before his UFC debut, Mokaev came in with a perfect record of 6 wins, no losses and 1 no contests. Collectively in his career, Mokaev is 30-0 now, at just the age of 21. Mokaev is a fighter based in UK with Russian origins.

In a tweet issued to UFC megastar Sean O’Malley, Mokaev wrote on Twitter “Are you available July 2nd in Vegas? @SugaSeanMMA I’ll finish you in round one, I don’t care what weight, I’ll come to your division UK VS USA round 2 but this time in USA” Mokaev definitely proved he belongs to the top of the flyweight division with his UFC debut performance, but seems like Mokaev believes that he has lot more potential than people could foresee as of now and might probably be thinking of a fight at bantamweight as well.

O’Malley on the other hand, is coming off a spectacular 2021 after winning 3 back to back bantamweight fights with spectacular knockouts. So far, O’Malley is 8-1 in the UFC with wins over Eddie Wineland, Thomas Almeida, Kris Moutinho and Raulian Paiva. Despite fighting unranked fighters so far, O’Malley is name big enough to have secured main-card spots and sometimes even fight right before the co-main. O’Malley has always been attracting a large amount of young audience like that of millenials and Gen-Z that fondly watch his fights.

What do you make of Mokaev’s callout of O’Malley? If the fight ever happens, who do you think wins? Do you think O’Malley has suitable advantages over Mokaev or will the English-Russian prodigy will prove that he is worth more than what people perceive him to be? Who do you think both of them should fight next in their respective career?
