September 7, 2019
Ziam lost to Don Madge via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 29-28) at UFC 242 in The Arena on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.
Ziam came into this fight as a credentialed kickboxer, which may be the reason his opponent decided to employ a clinch-heavy attack. Ziam was stifled from the opening bell, as Madge would pressure and look to clinch during every exchange. The brief moments we saw of him in space looked promising, so it will be interesting to see Ziam in a matchup with an opponent willing to strike. He falls to 10-3 in professional MMA as a result of the loss.
