Through a ‘stories', at the Instagram, the fighter also evaluated the possibility of retirement. The possibility was a topic of discussion among sports fans.

“I will be back”, the athlete limited himself to publishing.


This weekend, Khamzat would step into the Octagon for his first engagement in 2024. The fighter would face off against Robert whittaker, in a confrontation that could take him to the top 5 middleweights (up to 83,9kg.).

Undefeated as a professional in MMA, Chimaev is treated as a bet for the company's future. Currently, the fighter has 13 consecutive victories, 11 of which are on the fast track.


With the UAE representative out of action, the UFC acted quickly and found a replacement. Now, Robert whittaker measure forces with Nassourdine Imavov, who recently performed at UFC Louisville, having overcome Jared Cannonier.
