The British middleweight Till is currently on a two-fight skid. To map his way back to the win column, ‘The Gorilla’ will take on Jack Hermansson next in a UFC Fight Night event in July.

Meanwhile, ‘The Lone Wolf’ is still awaiting an opponent for his next outing.

What is next for Khamzat Chimaev in UFC?

‘Borz’ has dominated the welterweight division with back-to-back wins in his career. He recently defeated a tip contender and cemented the third position on the welterweight roster.

The Russian-born Swedish fighter is only a step closer to achieving his dream of becoming the UFC champion now. However, he still needs one more win under his bag to earn a shot at the title.

UFC is trying to match up ‘Borz’ with the fan-favorite Nate Diaz, who has one fight left on his contract. On The Jim Rome Show, UFC kingpin Dana White said, “To be honest with you right here, off the top of my head, this thing has played out back-and-forth so many different ways. Yes, we tried to make that fight.”

“He wanted the fight, then he didn’t want the fight. But Nate Diaz did accept the fight with him,” White concluded.

Although Diaz is not a ranked fighter, he is one of the biggest draws in the promotions. A fight between him and Chimaev will bring hefty pay-per-views for the promotion. Hence, White is opting for this match-up.
