Giga Chikadze Calls For Fight With Yair Rodriguez, Following UFC Singapore Win
By FCF Staff
Now that Giga Chikadze has returned to the win column, the featherweight is calling for a fight with Yair Rodriguez.
Chikadze returned to the cage for the first time since January 2022, on Saturday and faced Alex Caceres. The noted striker worked his way to a unanimous decision win.
“I want to fight in pay-per-view card in December,” Chikadze said. “I’ve never fought on a pay-per-view card, and I know it’s going to be a huge show. I want to be there and I want to compete against ‘El Pantera’ Yair Rodriguez.”
Chikadze (15-3) was coming off a decision loss to Calvin Kattar heading into Saturday’s UFC Singapore card. That loss snapped his nine-fight winning streak.
Rodriguez (15-4), meanwhile, was stopped by champion Alexander Volkanovski in his last outing, which took place in July. Rodriguez is 3-2 in his last 5 fights.
UFC 296 is scheduled to take place on December 16th in Las Vegas, Nevada.
