Ozdemir called the Whittaker fight a real test for Chimaev

Volkan Ozdemir, UFC welterweight division fighter has spoken out about the upcoming fight between Hamzat Chimaev and Robert Whittaker.

"I think it's going to be an interesting fight because Hamzat is also very good at striking and Robert is great at defending against wrestling. You can't just deal with Rob. Hamzat will also go all the way, he'll try to take you on a tekdown until you give up. It's going to be interesting. Chimaev fought the great Usman. But that was a middleweight fight against a welterweight. Whittaker will be a real test for Hamzat," Ozdemir said in an interview with Sportskeeda.

Recall, the fight between Chimaev and Whittaker will take place on June 22 in Saudi Arabia.
