Mokaev (8-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) wants a shot at Albazi (16-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) on the UFC 286 card on March 18 in London, but is accusing Albazi of ducking him.
“I want to fight Amir Albazi in the U.K., but he doesn’t want to fight me,” Mokaev told MMA Junkie. “He said I haven’t fought anyone from the top 15, but he didn’t fight anyone from the top 15, either. So we’re at the same level, I believe. I’m a bad matchup for him. That’s why he wants to fight injured guys like Perez and all these half-broken men.”
