First KO of 2022: Fighter Dropped With Devastating Body Shots

UFC has been on a lengthy break before kicking things off with a bang in January.  The promotion is preparing for a heavyweight unification title bout and has in process taken a few weeks of in the end of 2021 and start of 2022.

For the first card of 2022 they’ve booked a striking showdown between Giga Chikadze and Calvin Kattar – but what they haven’t anticipated is that a minor player on the card might be a show stealer.

Viacheslav Borshchev delivered a devastating finish on Dakota Bush early on in the evening marking the start of 2022.


30 year old ‘Slava’ Borshchev made a stunning debut in the promotion. Borschev previously secured the contract having fought on Dana White’s contender series. This is only his 7th professional bout – his professional fight record stands at 6 victories and one loss.

Borshchev’s dance celebration also left a lasting impression!

Slava also delivered a devastating KO during his run on DWCS.

We’ll be curious to see how his career develops! Congrats
