Fans already know that Chimaev’s previous rival, Ikram Aliskerov, is stepping in as his replacement to fight Robert Whittaker in the evening’s main event.

While Chimaev’s continued absence from the Octagon upsets fans and management alike, this heartache could turn into a career-defining moment for Aliskerov if he manages to sneak past the former middleweight champion.

But the main event is far from the only exciting encounter scheduled for June 23.

What does the entire UFC Saudi Arabia fight card look like?

There’s no telling that fans would have liked UFC Saudi Arabia more if Khamzat Chimaev hadn’t had to withdraw from the main event.

But the current fight card features several enthrallers, all of which have the potential to blow the roof off.

Here’s a look at all the fights scheduled for June 23, excluding the main event Robert Whittaker vs. Ikram Aliskerov:

• Sergei Pavlovich vs. Alexander Volkov (heavyweight bout) (co-main event)
• Kelvin Gastelum vs. Daniel Rodriguez (Welterweight bout)
