UFC Saudi Arabia post-fight show: Reaction to Robert Whittaker’s destruction of Ikram Aliskerov

Robert Whittaker reminded fans he is still one of the best middleweights in the world as he dispatched the dangerous Ikram Aliskerov in the main event of UFC Saudi Arabia. Was the win good enough to get the winner of the UFC 305 main event between Dricus du Plessis and Israel Adesanya for the middleweight title, or does Whittaker now have a future showdown with Sean Strickland?

After Saturday’s Fight Night event in Riydah, MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck, Jed Meshew and Eric Jackman react to Whittaker’s first-round finish by Aliskerov, discuss Aliskerov’s future and where Whittaker will go next. Plus, they discuss Alexander Volkov’s main event win over Sergei Pavlovich, Kelvin Gastelum ending a terrible week with a win over Daniel Rodriguez, Paige VanZant competing in the Power Slap next Friday and more.
