In what could be the worst year in modern history, these men and women were able to make the most of their appearance in the Octagon and discuss much over the years to come.

You sprinkle some COVID on it, and you’re here. Everyone was asking about him this weekend why he got out of the fight. He was infected with COVID. He is a barbarian.

He doesn’t want him to start training until some time in January. So you got him. “

Chimaev made his promotional debut at one of the first shows on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi and announced his arrival at ESPN’s UFC, which he submitted to John Phillips: Kattar vs. Ige. Ten days later, Chimaev returned to Rhys McKee at ESPN: Whittaker vs. Till’s UFC to knock out, winning two straight wins and another “Performance of the Night” bonus.
