Robert Whittaker reminded fans that he’s still one of the best middleweights in the world as he quickly dispatched the dangerous Ikram Aliskerov in the main event of UFC Saudi Arabia. Was the win good enough to get him 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 matchup against Sean Strickland?

Following Saturday’s Fight Night event in Riydah, MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck, Jed Meshew, and Eric Jackman react to Whittaker’s first-round finish of Aliskerov, discuss the future of Aliskerov moving forward, and where Whittaker goes next. Additionally, they discuss Alexander Volkov’s co-main event win over Sergei Pavlovich, Kelvin Gastelum ending a horrible week with a win over Daniel Rodriguez, Paige VanZant competing in Power Slap next Friday, and more.
