The 2 fighters met in a bout on Saturday night time (Could 1, 2021) on the UFC Vegas 25 event from Las Vegas, Nevada on the UFC Apex facility.
Chikadze landed a kick to the liver of Swanson and folded Cub then swarmed him on the bottom with strikes. He calls it the Gigakick. A really spectacular win for this prospect over a tricky vet.
