Whittaker's plan to beat Chimaev revealed

UFC star Khamzat Chimaev is set to make his highly anticipated return to the octagon at UFC’s event in Saudi Arabia on June 22. Khamzat will face former UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker in the main event of the evening.

Khamzat’s Recent Victories

Khamzat Chimaev’s most recent victory came against former welterweight champion Kamaru Usman at UFC 294 last year. Prior to that, the 30-year-old defeated welterweight Kevin Holland via submission. Robert Whittaker’s last fight was against Brazilian Paulo Costa at UFC 298, where Whittaker delivered a dominant performance and won by unanimous decision.

Whittaker Comments on Khamzat Chimaev!

Earlier this week, the Australian fighter spoke about the upcoming showdown with Khamzat. Whittaker mentioned that he has drawn inspiration from Brazilian fighter Gilbert Burns’ performance against Chimaev at UFC 273. Although Burns put up a good fight, Khamzat ultimately won by unanimous decision.

“Burns took away Khamzat’s grappling strength by putting pressure on him in the stand-up,” Whittaker said. “In my opinion, I am a better striker than Gilbert Burns. I believe I will have an easier time landing decisive strikes. I am also good at defending takedowns. I am better than Burns at maintaining distance and controlling the opponent in the stand-up.”
