(Video) Islam Makhachev sends Volkanovski’s daughter presents after funny story featuring him as a boogeyman

Former UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski receives a touching gift from lightweight champ Islam Makhachev after a humorous incident involving Volkanovski’s daughter fearing Makhachev.

 

In a memorable showdown last year, Alexander Volkanovski faced off against Islam Makhachev, ultimately succumbing to Makhachev’s prowess in a unanimous decision. The rivalry between the two fighters intensified when they clashed again in October, with Makhachev securing victory via a first-round head kick knockout.

Despite the competitive nature of their encounters, Volkanovski and Makhachev maintain a respectful relationship, which extends beyond the octagon. Following his defeats to Makhachev, Volkanovski shared a humorous anecdote involving his daughter.

During a conversation about home security, Volkanovski reassured his daughter that as an MMA athlete, he could protect their household from intruders. However, his daughter quipped, “What if it’s Islam Makhachev?” leaving Volkanovski at a loss for words.

The amusing story gained traction on social media, reaching Makhachev himself. Feeling empathetic towards Volkanovski’s daughter, Makhachev decided to send her a thoughtful gift to alleviate any fears she may have harbored.

Volkanovski recently took to social media to share the arrival of Makhachev’s gift—a sizable pink bag intended for his daughter. Additionally, Volkanovski revealed that Makhachev had messaged him, assuring him that he would never intrude on their home uninvited.

Expressing gratitude for Makhachev’s kind gesture, Volkanovski commended him as a “good human being.” Despite Volkanovski’s recent loss of his featherweight title to Illia Topuria at UFC 298, the exchange between Volkanovski and Makhachev highlights the camaraderie and sportsmanship present in the MMA community.
