On October 03, 2015, Brazilian Adriano Martins knocked out the then young promise Islam makhachev at UFC 192 and recorded his third consecutive victory in the organization. What the Tupiniquim athlete did not imagine at that moment was that this would be his last victory in his career. At least until March 2024. Understand the story.

The duel between Martins and Makhachev took place on the preliminary card of UFC 192, which was held in Houston, Texas (USA). Still in the first round, the Russian threw a blow in a flustered manner and opened up a beautiful cross from the Brazilian that led to Khabib's pupil being knocked out immediately.


However, since the brutal victory, Adriano has participated in six other fights and suffered five defeats and one 'no-contest'. There were just over eight years of drought for the Brazilian until last Saturday (30), when Martins beat Belgian Donovan Desmae by split decision at the 'Kongs FC' event, held in the city of Niorte, in the south of France.

At Islam makhachev, the knockout suffered had the opposite effect to that of the Brazilian. Since UFC 192, the pupil of Khabib Nurmagomedov he had 13 victories in a row and today he is the current UFC lightweight champion, with victories over names like Charles of the Bronx, Alexander Volkanovsky e Arman Tsarukyan.
