UFC 267 Results – Khamzat Chimaev Submits Li Jingliang In Year Long Awaited Comeback

Khamzat Chimaev dropped a note worthy performance after a 13 month layoff, submitting Li Jingling in the first round of their UFC 267 main Card fight on Saturday night at the Ethiad Arena in Abu Dhabi.

Chimaev showed no rust in his game and wasted no time in bringing down the Chinese Welterweight to the canvas and after carefully disorganising Jingliang’s defence, he went for the rare naked choke and got his tap at exactly 3:16 of the opening round.

Chimaev was actually out to prove a point to the UFC President and had to literarily carry Jingliang to where Dana White was sitted before submitting his opponent.

“I said to [Dana White] I’m the king here,” Chimaev shouted following his win. “I kill everybody. You believe me now? He [went to] sleep.”

Chimaev scored an early takedown that left Li helpless in his journey to the canvas, Chimaev secured a full mount but took some time to gradually tear LI’s defence apart while making progress in the grappling exchange.

Chimaev secured his hooks, then went in to hammer Li away with some brutal ground and pound as Li was underneath helplessly trying to escape, Livtried his best and succeeded, rolling out of the position, only to open himself up for a submission Chimaev so craved.

Chimaev made a few adjustments before going in with the Rare Naked choke. However, Li refused to tap and went to sleep instead.

The win for Chimaev, is his fourth since signing with UFC and that was over a year since his last appearance, which was due to a nasty COVID case that left him on the sidelines. Chimaev made clear he is out for everyone in the UFC Welterweight division and will become champion soon.

“Everybody. I come here for everybody,” Chimaev said about who he wants to fight next. “I kill everybody. I’m the champ. I’m the king.”
