MMA – The champion has chosen a new opponent. Chikadze criticizes Alexander Volkanovski’s preference for the Korean Zombie.
We learned with dismay, Alexander Volkanovski will not face Max Holloway in the end. The trilogy was originally scheduled to take place on March 5, as part of UFC 272. Indeed, Max Holloway is said to have aggravated a previous injury during training. Thus, many suitors have come forward to replace Holloway. Among these athletes ready to play the substitutes, we will note Henry Cejudo, Yair Rodriguez or Giga Chikadze. But it was to another that the champion’s gaze finally turned. Also, the Korean Zombie seems to have the favor of Volkanovski. This is particularly good, the Korean is also interested in this opposition.
But the choice of the champion is not to the taste of all within the division. Giga Chikadze has publicly expressed his disapproval of this choice via his Twitter.

“Alexander Volkanovski, the idiot who picks up the easiest elements of the division. Zombie and especially Rodriguez, he sucks. I’ll take care of my business on Saturday and kick your dwarf boy in Singapore or Ireland, d‘wherever you come from. “
Alexander Volkanovski was quick to respond to him. A very respectful response in which the champion simply invites Chikadze to take care of the duel that awaits him. Indeed, on the night of January 15 to 16, Giga Chikadze will face Calvin Kattar. So, it is appropriate for “Ninja” to gain the upper hand over his opponent to come before imagining to challenge the champion. But the Georgian did not miss this opportunity to make himself talk and to be noticed by the champion. It’s up to him to put in a performance this weekend to become an essential athlete in the UFC featherweight category.
