Vegas, Nevada – Magomed Angelev He feels like the rightful No. 1 contender for the title.
Angelev closed the book on his match Johnny Walker Last night at UFC Vegas 84 (Sat., Jan. 13, 2024) he knocked out the Brazilian in the second round with a right hand followed by an uppercut from inside the UFC Apex in Las Vegas (see highlights). Angelev earned a performance of the night bonus for his knockout.
With Alex Pereira due for his next light heavyweight title shot, another fighter is returning to an automatic title shot: former light heavyweight champion Jamahel Hill.
However, the Russian hopes to get Perera next as he is the most deserving.
„I think I'm very deserving of the belt because I have ten wins, six of them by knockout,” Angalev told the media during the UFC Vegas 84 post-fight press conference (see here ) Jamahal Hill has a total of eight fights in the UFC. So, it is clear that I am a more worthy competitor than Jamahal Hill.
Although UFC CEO Dana White promised Hill a title shot upon his return, there was no real update on his Achilles injury other than „he's getting better.” So, his return is still up in the air, which might help Angele.
Anakalev has a 10-match win streak and is tied with no matches.
