UFC CEO Dana White, nevertheless, has actually validated that Chimaev is next in line for a middleweight title shot. The present betting odds favor Chimaev, however if he has actually suffered a hand injury, the title fight might be cancelled. Strickland, with a remarkable record of 28-5, has actually combated a few of the very best in the middleweight department.
