Ikram Aliskerov recently released a statement following his loss to Robert Whittaker at UFC Saudi Arabia. The event, which took place on June 22 at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, marked the promotion’s first-ever visit to Saudi Arabia.

Aliskerov stepped in on short notice as a replacement for Whittaker’s original opponent, Khamzat Chimaev. Chimaev had to withdraw from the middleweight bout due to severe illness. Despite the challenging circumstances, Aliskerov entered the fight with a professional record of 15-1 and a two-fight win streak in the promotion. His last victory was a knockout win against Warlley Alves at UFC 294.

Whittaker’s Dominant Performance

Whittaker, a former UFC middleweight champion, demonstrated his fighting intelligence early in the bout. He anticipated Aliskerov’s feints, landing an overhand that left the Russian fighter wobbly on his legs. Whittaker then faked a takedown attempt, luring Aliskerov into lifting his guard before delivering a massive uppercut that ultimately led to the fight’s stoppage.

Ikram Aliskerov’s Response

Following the fight, Ikram Aliskerov took to social media and issued a statement on his loss: “Alhamdulillah! No excuses! I’ll try to benefit from everything! And so everything is fine.” Despite the defeat, Aliskerov remains determined and focused on his journey in the UFC.

Robert Whittaker’s Path Forward

Whittaker’s convincing victory over Aliskerov moved him one step closer to a title shot. Currently riding a winning streak, Whittaker is likely to remain in or near the top contender position, possibly setting up future matchups with fighters like Sean Strickland.

Whittaker’s original opponent, Khamzat Chimaev, congratulated the former champion on his performance. Chimaev also wished Aliskerov a speedy recovery, emphasizing the camaraderie among fighters in the sport.
