After fighting a hard battle with the COVID-19 bug, ‘Borz’ will return to the UFC for the first time since September 2020. The Swedish fighter is yet to be defeated in his professional MMA career. The (9-0) record holder has an impressive career under his name.

The unbeaten welterweight fighter is a finisher with almost 100% finishing ratio. Six of his nine wins are via TKO while rest three are via submission. He is on an amazing nine win-streak. The latter defeated his last opponent, Gerald Meerschaert, in just 17 seconds of the first round.

Khamzat Chimaev will face the Chinese fighter, Li Jingliang. Meanwhile, the 33-year-old is coming off a win over Santiago Ponzinibbio in his last bout. The Chinese fighter is currently #12 in the welterweight division of the UFC.

Hence, this is an enormous opportunity for Chimaev. If the 27-year-old secures a big win in this fight, it will surely cement his position in the welterweight roster. Until then, the combat fans will have to weight for this intriguing fight to happen.

What do you make out of Chimaev’s coach words? How are you feeling about the return of the undefeated welterweight fighter? Will he continue his streak this time? Let us know in the comment section below.
