Islam Makhachev, the reigning lightweight champion, recently defended his title for the third time by submitting Dustin Poirier in the fifth round at UFC 302 last month. Following the suspension of Arman Tsarukyan, who was next in line for a title shot, Poirier expressed interest in a rematch on Twitter: “If Arman can’t fight, let’s go again @MAKHACHEVMMA.” However, Makhachev politely declined, stating, “No thanks. I need new targets”.

Who Can Be Islam Makhachev’s Next Opponent?

Despite their closely contested bout, an immediate rematch seems unlikely. Many questioned whether Poirier deserved the title opportunity in the first place. With Charles Oliveira and Justin Gaethje coming off losses, it remains unclear who will challenge Makhachev next. Meanwhile, Michael Chandler claims he has been offered a title bout against Makhachev, although his recent loss and extended inactivity raise questions about his candidacy.

In the absence of a clear contender, the lightweight division awaits its next challenger, and Makhachev seeks fresh opponents to test his mettle. Whether it’s Poirier, Chandler, or another rising star, the road to the lightweight throne promises excitement and intrigue.But if another fight materialises between Dustin Poirier and Islam Makhachev it will surely be interesting to see who will come out on top.
