Islam Makhachev isn't going to wait around for a fight.

Instead, the Lightweight champion has called out Justin Gaethje for a fight later in the year, likely in June or July.

Makhachev's mentor, Khabib Nurmagomedov, fought Justin Gaethje in his last fight before retirement, and now Makhachev wants to defeat Gaethje as well.

Makhachev, unsurprisingly, has opened as a big favourite.

Here are the current betting odds, courtesy of a major US sportsbook:

Islam Makhachev, 1.22
Justin Gaethje, 4.50

According to these odds, a successful $100 bet on Makhachev would yield a total profit of just $22, while a successful $100 bet on Gaethje would return a total profit of $350.

Gaethje has certainly earned another shot at the title, as he has compiled wins over Dustin Poirier and Rafel Fiziev in his most recent fights.

Makhachev will obviously have a big advantage on the ground, while Gaethje is tough as nails and will look to get into brawls.

This is an interesting stylistic fight, which is likely why Makhachev requested it, as he is eager to show that he is a multi-dimensional fighter.
