Khamzat Chimaev Next Fight - Opponent, Date, Location

A rumor about Khamzat Chimaev's next opponent being the former UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya has been circulating in the MMA community. It gained traction after a leaked listing on a Saudi ticket website suggested that this potential blockbuster UFC showdown might headline the UFC’s inaugural event in Saudi Arabia on June 22, 2024. However, UFC president Dana White has dismissed this rumor, calling it “Total B*llshit” and emphasizing that the fight is not confirmed.

Both fighters have their own compelling narratives: Chimaev, with an undefeated record of 13-0, including a victory over former welterweight champion Kamaru Usman, and Adesanya, seeking redemption after a surprising loss to Sean Strickland in September 2023.
