[Watch] Islam Makhachev Puts Sparring Partner To Sleep With D’Arce Choke

Islam Makhachev is in the midst of preparing for UFC 280. On October 22, he’ll face Charles Oliveira in the most important fight of his career – for the vacant UFC lightweight title.
During one of the training sessions of this preparation, he managed to render one of his training partners unconscious with a D’Arce Choke.

Thankfully, Makhachev let go of the choke as soon as he felt that the sparring partner stopped giving resistance. The two then shared a good laugh.
Watch it take place on the video below:

Ranked #4 in the UFC lightweight division, Makhachev is sporting a 10-fight win streak, whereas Oliveira is on a 11-fight win streak.
Islam is also seen as one of the top-ranked wrestlers, while Oliveira is thought by many to be the greatest BJJ athlete in the UFC.

With that in mind, it’s speculated by the majority of MMA fans that the upcoming UFC lightweight title fight will feature a lot of submission attempts from both sides. And it will be exciting to see how the match ends.
