The latest sensation in UFC, Khamzat Chimaev, will finally get to fight a ranked fighter in the main event of a UFC event, the company president Dana White has confirmed.
Chimaev made his debut in July and won two fights in just ten days, over John Phillips and Rhys McKee. He added to those two wins with a win over Gerald Meerschaert in just 17 seconds at UFC Vegas 11 last week.
Chimaev has called out who’s who of UFC including Connor Mcgregor. White revealed that Chimaev will be competing against Demian Maia, but with a main-event in place, UFC could look to bring a top 5 fighter for the undefeated Swede.
