Alessio Di Chirico vs Roman Dolidze Booked for June 5th
Alessio Di Chirico (13-5-0, 4-5-0 UFC) entered the UFC unbeaten back in 2016. The Italian middleweight began his UFC journey by losing two of his first three bouts. “Manzo” bounced back strong however with a Performance of the Night worthy KO (Knee) against Oluwale Bamgbose. Then, three straight unanimous decision defeats left Di Chirico with his back against the wall once more. Yet again, he answered with a highlight finish (Head Kick) – this time over Joaquin Buckley. The 31-year-old will look to keep the momentum rolling in this next fight.
Roman Dolidze (8-1-0, 2-1-0 UFC) is similar to Di Chirico in that he too entered the UFC undefeated. However, the Georgian native awed in his debut with a TKO finish over Khadis Ibragimov. The 32-year-old middleweight split his last two bouts – both fights went to the judges. Though he fell short in his last outing against Trevin Giles, Dolidze displayed incredible toughness to go along with his physical talents. He has good size for the division, standing at 6’2″. Dolidze wants to get back in the win column with a good showing in this next fight.
