Khamzat Chimaev vs. Nate Diaz Breakdown

Khamzat Chimaev (11-0)

The absolute fastest rising star in UFC history looks to supplant himself firmly into the number one contender position. Chimaev signed with the UFC in July 2020 when he quickly dispatched of John Phillips. Chimaev would return to the octagon just 10-days later and finished Rhys McKee, also inside of one round. Chimaev would then begin to climb the ladder and needed just 17-seconds to knock out veteran, Gerald Meerschaert.

Chimaev then upped the competition and faced his first-ranked opponent in the form of Li Jingliang and Chimaev continued to exceed expectations and submitted Jingliang in round number one. Chimaev then faced the biggest test of his career at UFC 273 when he faced former title challenger, Gilbert Burns. However, Chimaev would ace another test as he was beaten up and hurt numerous times during the bout but that didn't deter him from ultimately securing the unanimous decision victory over his Brazilian counterpart.

Nate Diaz (20-13)

Longtime fan favorite, Nate Diaz made his UFC debut all the way back in 2007 when he won the fifth season of The Ultimate Fighter series. Since his TUF 5 victory, Diaz would have a roller coaster run in the promotion before making the leap to bonafide superstar, due in part to his submission victory over Conor McGregor at UFC 196, a fight Diaz took on just over a week's notice.

Diaz lost the rematch to McGregor at UFC 202 and has only fought sporadically ever since. Diaz last fought at UFC 263, where he was on the wrong side of a unanimous decision against new UFC Welterweight Champion, Leon Edwards.
