Adesanya named the condition for the fight with Chimayev

Former UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya said he likes the idea of fighting undefeated Hamzat Chimaev.

"If Chimaev beats Whittaker, I would like to test myself against him. I like that option - I want to see what I'm capable of. Fights like this turn me on. I want to see what Hamzat is ready for at middleweight. I saw his fight against Usman, Kamaru was very close to winning. If they had fought five rounds, the result would have been different.

I remember that his fight against Gilbert Burns made me respect Chimaev for the first time. Khamzat missed, but managed to pull himself together and win the fight. So I'm interested to see how it goes between us. Let's see if we fight in the end. It would be cool," MMA Fighting quotes Adesanya as saying.
