    Interviewer: You sparred with Dustin Poirier and fought with Islam Makhachev. Which of them is higher in class, stronger in decision-making, in understanding the pattern of the battle?

    Arman: Dustin has more experience, he was in the hardest battles, fought with all the best in the world. But if they fight Islam, I will be sure that Islam will win. His fight is on a different level

    Tsarukyan was one of Poirier's main sparring partners for the Khabib fight

    Obviously. Islam probably could beat all the top lightweights.

    Most guys pick the guy that beat them to beat others.

    He probably was grapple fucking Poirier in sparring which led to that conclusion though

    He's right. He'd beat Conor and everyone else in the division too.

    Being almost as good as Khabib should make him a dominant champ.

    Great loyalty to his teammate. Good commitment to his fight also coming in 4(3) lbs heavier than the maximum.

    I like Tsarukyan's fighting style but sounds like he needs to get slapped up a little bit

    That’s fucked up to say even if he believes it.

    Islam can't beat anybody because he never fights.

    Ali Abdelasleaze can’t even book Islam a fight. Islam will be past his prime when he gets a shot. Lol

    Is he the porker that just missed weight? Maybe if he’d have started running his mouth earlier he’d have made weight.

    It sucks he dont compete enough...and im not saying he will be a champ or nothing...but Islam's grappling is no joke.

    Yves edwards was on JRE talkin about his teammate nick lentz who is a NCAA div 1 wrestler,and he couldnt do a damn thing with Islam. Khabib wouldnt co sign him if he wasnt legit. He still got to prove it to the world tho

    I think Arman should focus on himself a bit more...maybe he won’t miss weight if he’s focused on himself instead of trashing his teammates

    Poirier vs Islam would be a good fight to make if Poirier loses to Conor and Islam beats Dober

    Poirier didn't manage to KO light Max for five rounds. Islam would grapplef*ck him obviously.

    Even if he believes that’s true, why even comment on that publicly? That’s just being a shitty teammate.
