Georgian Athletes Making Waves In The UFC

“We’ll be so proud, and it will be some motivation for everyone,” says Dvalishvili. “I believe Ilia can beat Alex Volkanovski. It sounds crazy, but I believe in him. Ilia is really something different. He’s built different, he thinks different, he’s undefeated and has an undefeated mindset; he’s great.”

Dvalishvili, a Top 5 bantamweight, hopes to make it to the championship rounds himself soon, as a win against former champion Henry Cejudo at UFC 298 could put him on the path for gold by the end of this year. 

For Dvalishvili, the dream of competing in Georgia holds immense significance. He envisions an event in his homeland as a culmination of his journey, a momentous occasion that would fulfill his personal aspirations and unite his country in celebration.
