A name in the dark alleys of the UFC is revered by his opponents for his mastery in fighting. It is none other than Khamzat Chimaev. The undefeated Chechen has been one of the UFC's biggest stars of late. His unshakable winning streak contributed a lot to Chimaev's fame.

With a clean record of 13-0, Chimaev is ready to face former middleweight champion Robert Whittaker in his UFC debut in Saudi Arabia. But before Chimaev's clash with Whittaker, “Borz” has found support and a new opponent in Bo Nickal. The American wrestler and UFC fighter seems ready to face Emeriti. Interestingly, WWE star CM Punk also expects a clash between the two wrestlers.
