Khamzat Chimaev Will Be Freestyle Wrestling Jack Hermansson

UFC’s rising star Khamzat Chimaev agreed to be a part of an exhibition wrestling match against another UFC ace – veteran Jack Hermansson. The match will be conducted under the rules of freestyle wrestling.

This exhibition will take place at Sweden-based Bulldog Fight Night 9. The bout will take place in Gothenburg on November 19th.

It’s unclear if UFC is aware of this – and letting it happen. Generally speaking, it’s not unheard of to be a part of a challenge but typically those challenges that the UFC lets happen end up on UFC Fight Pass. Remember Cub Swanson shredding his leg during a grappling match up?
