KHAMZAT RETURNS FOR ABU DHABI
Paulo Costa vs Khamzat Chimaev
UFC 294 | October 21 | Abu Dhabi UAE

Chimaev will have his second bout at middleweight. His first fight was a win over Gerald Meerschaert via a knockout in the first round, as Chimaev’s career has been mostly at welterweight.
But in any event, he has not been in the octagon since last year when he emerged victorious over Kevin Holland. And given that he is undefeated, Chimaev will be the favorite.
If Costa does come out victorious, then a rematch with Israel Adesanya could be on the cards.
