Islam Makhachev discussed his weight cut with Khabib Nurmagomedov ahead of his fight at UFC 284.

Makhachev struggled to cut weight and Nurmagomedov checked on him frequently during the morning of the weigh-ins.

The weight cut appeared to be difficult for Makhachev, with former UFC champion Michael Bisping warning of a possible missed weight.

Despite this, Makhachev made weight and will face Alexander Volkanovski in a highly anticipated fight.

However, Nurmagomedov will not be present in Makhachev's corner for this fight, though he has been supporting him from a distance by checking on his training and weight cut.

Makhachev has had past difficulties with cutting weight, but he was ultimately successful in making weight for UFC 284.
