Recently, Impa Kasanganay issued a call out to Williams. However, ‘Khaos The Ox-fighter’ dismissed the possibilities of accepting that call-out, claiming that his next opponent will be whoever the UFC puts him up against.

No, I mean, at the end of the day, man, I am here. Whoever they put in front of me, that’s what it’s gonna be. You know a lot of people, you know they might try to get clout, or try to get a little brownie points. But at the end of the day, it’s easy to talk. I am a do-er. So, whatever they put in front of me, that’s just what it is,” said Williams in his post-fight press conference.

Kasanganay competes in both the welterweight and the middleweight divisions of the UFC. After suffering his first career loss against Joaquin Buckley, he got his first win in the UFC against Sasha Palatnikov. The submission win showed his skill sets. However, it seems he won’t get the opponent he wants in his next fight. Unless the UFC steps in.

What’s next for Kalinn ‘Khaos’ Williams?

The welterweight division is one of the most stacked divisions in the entire UFC roster. Considering this, Williams will certainly get a worthy opponent next. As he is currently looking to move among the bigger names of the 170 lbs division, a ranked opponent in his next outing certainly makes the most sense.

The likes of Muslim Salikhov or Santiago Ponzinibbio can be an excellent test for ‘Khaos the Ox-fighter’ as he looks to secure a number beside his name. The UFC could look to follow through and grant Impa Kasanganay his match as well.
