Basharat (11 -0 MMA, 2-0 UFC), who beat Kleydson Rodrigues (8-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) by first-round submission on Saturday night, is intending to get another battle this 2023.
” I wish to combat Dec. 16, possibly if it’s (Conor) McGregor vs. (Michael) Chandler,” Basharat stated backstage in the post-fight interview. “If not, it does not matter. I wish to combat Dec.16 I believe that’s 15 weeks in the meantime. I feel helpful for one of the most part, so I wish to remain active, and I wish to return therein. I feel really positive in my capability. Dec. 16, that’s the card I wish to combat on.”
As far as a possible challenger, Basharat does not see accessibility at the top, and there’s no other way he’ll call somebody out listed below him.
” No, there isn’t anyone I want,” Basharat stated. “The department remains in a location where the majority of individuals above me are reserved. There are some people who are listed below me, however they’re unworthy calling out, you understand. I do not wish to cherry-pick.”
