Khamzat Chimaev, the undefeated welterweight sensation, was forced to withdraw from UFC on ABC 6 due to illness. The event, which was scheduled to feature Chimaev in a headliner against Robert Whittaker, will now see rising middleweight contender Ikram Aliskerov step in as a replacement.

Chimaev broke his silence on social media, saying, “We always plan something, but Allah has his own plans for us! Alhamdulilah”. Despite the frustrating run for the 30-year-old fighter, his manager, Majdi Shammas, denied any retirement rumors. Shammas assured fans that Chimaev would be back and that they were actively working to address the situation and its underlying problems.

“It’s absolutely not true,” Shammas told MMA Junkie on Monday. “We’re planning on getting to the bottom of this situation, the problems. He will be back.”

Khamzat Chimaev’s last fight was a majority decision win over former champion Kamaru Usman in October at UFC 294. His bout against Whittaker was being touted as a No. 1 contender match before his withdrawal. For more details on the card, visit MMA Junkie’s event hub for UFC on ABC 6.

Khamzat Chimaev’s UFC Journey

Chimaev’s combat sports journey began as a freestyle wrestler with dreams of becoming a world champion. However, passport issues prevented him from competing at the world level. It was during this time that he discovered MMA after watching legendary fighter Fedor Emelianenko in an old PRIDE fight. Inspired by the sport, Chimaev decided to explore a new path.

Khamzat Chimaev faced adversity early on. He spent two years training in a windowless room at a gym, honing his skills and developing the tenacity that would define his career. His dedication paid off when he made his UFC debut on July 15, 2020.

Chimaev’s fighting style combines striking accuracy with relentless takedowns. His stats speak for themselves: 6 wins by knockout, 5 wins by submission, and 8 first-round finishes. His most recent victory against Kamaru Usman showcased his resilience and determination.
