Marvin Vettori ready to fight Khamzat Chimaev

If Marvin Vettori defeats Jared Cannonier this weekend, he is poised to be the next opponent for Khamzat Chimaev, who returns to the octagon on October 21 at UFC 294 in Abu Dhabi.

“Of course – I’m always ready to fight him,” said the Italian at a press conference in Las Vegas. “Anytime, anywhere. If he wants it, I’m ready. I have never turned down a fight or dropped out of a fight. So please, submit it here.”

Earlier, Marvin Vettori’s opponent, Jared Cannonier, announced his readiness to fight the Chechen fighter, and UFC President Dana White denied information about the duel between Khamzat Chimaev and Kamaru Usman, which is allegedly in development.

Recall that the battle of the top middleweights will be the main event of the UFC on ESPN 47 tournament, which will be held June 17 in Las Vegas.
