This stat about UFC star Khamzat Chimaevs dominant run will blow your mind.
Khamzat Chimaev has actually made fighting in the UFC octagon appearance easy, with four-straight surfaces to begin his period with the promo.
But a recent statistic that is trending on social networks explains that Chimaevs dominance is much more eye-opening than many previously thought.
Chimaev earned another first-round submission at UFC 267, this time over UFC veteran Li Jingliang. After throwing Jingliang around in the opening seconds of the bout, Chimaev sunk in a deep rear-naked choke to top off another stellar performance.
As MMA press reporter Aaron Bronsteter pointed out, Chimaev has actually just suffered one substantial strike through 4 UFC fights.
Khamzat Chimaev has just been struck by one significant strike throughout his four UFC fights.
Chimaev initially made a name for himself in 2020, as he made three-straight surfaces in UFC battles in a period of just over 2 months. He also took a short-notice battle at middleweight versus Gerald Meerschaert, knocking him out in just 17 seconds.
Whats remarkable about Chimaevs latest win is the truth that it was his very first fight after more than a year away from competitors. He experienced a serious case of COVID-19 that led him to briefly retire, prior to going back to action in 2021.
Chimaev signed with the UFC after a dominant run in Brave CF, in which he made 4 straight finishes. He was originally understood for his wrestling, but his boxing has actually become another strength of his rather than a weakness.
At 27 years old, Chimaev is just starting in his professional career. If his current performances are any sign, he might be a trashing ball in the promotion for years to come.
In Khamzat Chimaevs first four UFC battles, he has actually outlanded his challengers 112-1 in considerable strikes.
