A new welterweight bout has been scheduled for the May 20 UFC event.
According to the latest reports, Maheshate Hayisaer will collide against Viacheslav Borschev at the UFC Fight Night event on May 20, 2023.
MMA Ecosystem was the first one to report this matchup which was later confirmed by several other sources as well.
Maheshate Hayisaer made his way to UFC by defeating Achilles Estremadura at Dana White’s Contender Series. He impressed everyone by registering a first-round KO win against Steve Garcia in his inaugural UFC match at UFC 275. However, he lost momentum and then was defeated by Rafa Garcia in December 2022.
On the other hand, Viacheslav Borschev also earned the UFC contract by winning at Dana White Contender Series. He too won his UFC debut via a first-round KO against Dakota Bush. However, he lost against Marc Diakiese and then lost his most recent match against Mike Davis as well.
Now, it remains to be seen which one of these welterweights will return to the winning path when they face each other at the UFC Fight Night event on May 20.
