A clash between Kyle Daukaus and the unbeaten Aliaskhab Khizriev is in the works for the UFC event on April 10.

Specifically, Daukaus is extremely dangerous on the ground. Of the middleweight’s ten professional wins, eight of them have come by way of submission. Undoubtedly, the American always likes to keep the fight’s result out of the judge’s hands.
Kyle Daukaus Welcomes Aliaskhab Khizriev To The UFC On April 10
At the UFC event on April 10, the middleweight action will be a great reminder of the depth of the division. Additionally, since middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya is coming off a loss now, surely now is a good time to pounce on weight class. But the best way to get the champion’s attention is with a brilliant performance.
Conversely, “The Black Wolf” is undefeated and thus poses serious problems for the seasoned Daukaus. Not to mention, the Russian powerhouse has a variety of ways to finish the fight. With an unbeaten athlete sometimes it’s difficult to tape study or find definitive holes in their game. However, the 28-year old is no stranger to being undefeated. In fact, Daukaus endured his first professional loss in the UFC against Brendan Allen, but so far that’s been his only setback.
