Giga Chikadze’s Face Got All Cut Up in All Out War With Calvin Kattar

Coming into last night’s fight – Chikadze was the favorite. In fact many even speculated he would come out of the fight unscathed and as such would be eligible to step up and face Alex Volkanovski for the title.

The reality turned out to be quite different.

Giga Chikadze was able to withstand roughly 2 rounds before Kattar started bringing the heat – and it can be argued that he wasn’t winning the first two either.

Kattar’s elbows in particular left a huge mark on Chikadze’s face.

In many ways the fight was a striking masterclass.

As they stood and waited for the decision to be announced their faces told the entire story.
