Arman Tsarukyan took on Islam Makhachev back in 2019 in a three-round fight. After fighting hard for 15 minutes, Tsarukyan was handed his second-ever MMA defeat. Speaking about his loss to the UFC lightweight championship contender, Tsarukyan suggested that he hadn’t trained enough for the fight.
Arman Tsarukyan recently sat down for an interview with ESPN MMA ahead of his first UFC headliner and suggested that he had his wedding just two weeks prior to his fight against Islam Makhachev. He also mentioned how this made it harder for him to cut weight. However, he also acknowledged the fact that he should’ve stayed focused regardless, he said:
“First of all my weight was like, 87 kilos, 86 kilos, because I got married at that moment, I didn’t train enough. But it’s not, you know, it doesn’t matter, I trained or not, I signed that fight you know? I gotta be like prepared for that day you know?
