Shamil Abdurakhimov vs. Chase Sherman set for UFC Fight Night 122 in Shanghai


The card for the UFC’s debut in mainland China continues to grow with the addition of a heavyweight fight.

Shamil Abdurakhimov (17-4 MMA, 2-2 UFC) is set to take on Chase Sherman (11-3 MMA, 2-2 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 122 next month. Promotion officials announced the new booking, which first was reported by MMA Today.

UFC Fight Night 122 takes place Nov. 25 at Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai. The card will stream in full on UFC Fight Pass.

Shamil Abdurakhimov

Abdurakhimov will be trying to rebound from a TKO loss to Derrick Lewis in the UFC Fight Night 102 main event in Albany, N.Y., in December 2016. It was the Russian’s first UFC headlining opportunity, and though he fought well early, Lewis eventually got to him for a fourth-round TKO. Prior to that, he had his first two UFC victories – decisions over Anthony Hamilton and Walt Harris to rebound from a promotional debut TKO loss to Timothy Johnson.

Sherman lost his first two UFC fights by decision to Justin Ledet on short notice and by knockout to Harris in January. But in May, he bounced back in a big way and picked up a $50,000 “Fight of the Night” bonus for his knockout of Rashad Coulter at UFC 211 in Dallas. In July, he took a unanimous decision from Damian Grabowski at UFC on FOX 25 to make it two straight.

With the addition, the latest UFC Fight Night 122 card now includes:

  • Anderson Silva vs. Kelvin Gastelum
  • Kailin Curran vs. Xiaonan Yan
  • Gina Mazany vs. Yanan Wu
  • Shamil Abdurakhimov vs. Chase Sherman
