#14 UFC featherweight contender, Giga Chikadze may have just lodged the most high-profile win of his professional mixed martial arts career — stopping veteran, Cub Swanson with an opening round liver kick.

Extending his undefeated streak to six-fights in the Octagon, Chikadze managed to land a stiff liver kick on Swanson with just over a minute elasped in the first round, drawing a noticable reaction from division staple, Swanson. Eventually dropping to his knees, Swanson was met by a flurry of ground strikes from the Georgian — with referee, Jason Herzog calling a halt to the action.

During his post-fight interview with UFC lightweight contender, Paul Felder, Chikadze voiced his interest in a showdown against former featherweight champion, Max Holloway. And if not the Hawaiian next, Chikadze suggested a pairing against New England Cartel feature, Calvin Kattar.
