Khamzat Chimaev He raised Li Jingliang, during the UFC 267 main card, and before projecting him he sought out Dana White in the first rows of ringsite. She looked at him as she hit him. It was a clear message: he is back. The 26-year-old Swede (nationalized, born in Russia) was returning after more than a year without competing. The aftermath left by the covid even made him announce his retirement. Finally, he was able to return and showed that he is as dominant as ever.

He had played three matches in the UFC. In all of them he finished before the limit and leaving a feeling of incredible superiority. In fact, their triumphs came in just 65 days. The numbers were incredible. In 7 minutes and 40 seconds he landed 196 blows and only received two, one of power. With these data he looked at the title, but the break weighed him down.

If there was any doubt about his performance, Chimaev defeated Li Jingliang in 3 minutes and 16 seconds. He connected 58 blows and did not march without receiving any. It is clear that he was resubmitting his candidacy. His record in the UFC is already history (254-2) and a prize has taken four bonuses for performance of the night. No one had managed to reach that award in his first four lawsuits at the largest MMA company in the world. He is untouchable and wants new challenges. Usman exposes the welterweight belt against Covington this Saturday. Chimaev could be the next challenger. His numbers support him.
