Today’s UFC 267 event featured the highly anticipated return of Khamzat Chimaev who met Li Jingliang in a welterweight contest.

Chimaev (10-0 MMA) was returning to action for the first time since September of 2020, where he scored a sensational 18-second knockout win over Gerald Meerschaert (see that here). ‘Borz’ had gone a perfect 3-0 in his UFC career prior to today’s event, earning all three wins by way of stoppage.

Meanwhile, Li Jingliang (18-7 MMA) had entered tonight’s UFC 267 event looking to build off the momentum of his incredible knockout of Santiago Ponzinibbio from back in January. ‘The Leech’ had gone 4-1 over his past five Octagon appearances prior to today’s scrap with Khamzat Chimaev.

Today’s Chimaev vs Jingliang bout proved to be a quick and very one-sided affair. Khamzat was able to score an early takedown and immediately transitioned to the back of his opponent. From there, ‘Borz’ would lock-in a rear-naked choke which put Jingliang to sleep.
