(Video) Chimaev Defeats Jack Hermansson In Freestyle Wrestling

Khamzat Chimaev got the rare permission to perform outside the UFC – the Swede went on to have a freestyle wrestling match in a cage against another UFC ace in Jack Hermansson.

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?

While it’s said that Chimaev comes from a wrestling background – he’s also quite definitely not familiar with the finesses of the rules.


The full match is embedded below.
