Take down Aliskerov, Whitakker: I told you I was the ghost

Jakarta - MMA fighter from New Zealand Robert Whittaker knocked out Ikram Aliskerov when the fight had only lasted 1.49 minutes in his first UFC debut in Saudi Arabia, on Saturday (22/3) or early Sunday WIB.

"I told you, I told you, I am the ghost," said Robert after his latest victory, as quoted on the official mixed martial arts fighting website in Jakarta, Sunday.

Whittaker proved he was on fighting level after hitting Aliskerov with a stiff left hand during the early exchanges.

The fighter nicknamed “The Reaper” surged forward with incredible combinations, including powerful punches that sent his opponent crashing to the canvas.

Whittaker followed up with a few more punches before referee Marc Goddard saved the fighter from Dagestan, Russia, from further harm.

After winning in the octagon, the former UFC middleweight champion said he was the most dangerous opponent for anyone in the division.

"Because I am the best in the world. I will take any fight, at any time, I will fight anyone," he said.

With the win, Whittaker bounces back in position to potentially compete in a number one contender's fight against a fighter like Sean Strickland or perhaps even serve as a reserve for the middleweight title fight between Dricus du Plessis and Israel Adesanya at UFC 305 in Australia on August 17.

Whittaker said he would gladly accept an invitation to his next fight if offered.

"I'm healthy, I'm happy, let's do it," he concluded.
