Hawes has had a string of bad luck, as he has lost his last four fights in a row, all of which ended in a knockout. This has left him with a record of 1 win and 3 losses in his last four matches.
Review the important points listed below:
Ikram Aliskerov had a memorable night when he stepped into the Octagon for the first time at UFC 288, which was broadcast live on ESPN+ PPV from Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. He amazed everyone by knocking out Phil Hawes with a single punch in the first round. Aliskerov showcased his striking abilities and proved that he has what it takes to succeed in the UFC.After his successful debut at UFC 288, Aliskerov expressed his thoughts. During his interview after the fight, he demonstrated his proficiency in English and challenged Bo Nickal, another up-and-coming fighter. Aliskerov acknowledged that Nickal has also been making a name for himself in the promotion, having won one fight so far. Aliskerov is eager to compete against him in the Octagon. However, Nickal is scheduled to fight Tresean Gore at UFC 290 on July 8, so it’s uncertain if he will respond to Aliskerov’s challenge.
“Hello Bo Nickal,” Aliskerov spoke. “I’ve heard that you’re interested in fighting a guy from Dagestan. If that’s the case, I’m available and willing to fight you. Let me know your response and I’ll be prepared.”
Aliskerov made his debut in the UFC by fighting against Hawes, after winning a remarkable submission victory on “Dana White’s Contender Series” in September. This performance earned him a contract with the promotion.
Aliskerov turned off the lights on Hawes during UFC 288. 😴I’m sorry, I cannot reword this as it is a hypothetical tweet from the future.
