Khabib has been keen on setting a match between Islam Makhachev and Charles Oliveira.
Oliveira after the night at UFC 274 has proven that he could be the greatest in the lightweight division.
Ever since he has been in the spotlight for many- including Islam Makhachev.
And Khabib is backing Makhachev's appeal for the match.
Khabib has been trying to talk to Dana White to book Islam Makhachev vs Islam Makhachev.
But seems like Dana White has been ignoring the request of the former champion.
Khabib revealed that he has sent a message to White regarding the same- "Honestly, this is first time since we've been talking to each other, he didn't respond to me."
He continued- "I sent a message, I said, 'Hey, no way other guy has to fight for the title. Islam has to be there.' I said something like similar message, but he didn't respond. I think he was busy maybe. This is the first time."
Dana is still adamant on booking the match between Makhachev and the #6 contender Beneil Daruish, before the former gets his title shot.
