Mongolia

Easily handles Brandon Davis
BantamweightUFC
October 16, 2021
Batgerel defeated Brandon Davis via TKO (strikes) at 2:01 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It was a dominant effort from Batgerel for his third straight win since dropping his company debut. Facing an opponent in Davis who was returning to the UFC after being released by the company a couple years prior, Batgerel got loose on the feet early and often. He easily countered everything Davis threw his way before connecting with a combination, ending with a huge right hand, which effectively closed the show right then and there. It was a officially over after a few additional shots. We haven't seen enough from Batgerel to label him any sort of real contender at 135 pounds, but he deserves a step up in competition his next time out. Meanwhile, he'll go home with an extra $50,000 after being awarded one of four Performance of the Night bonuses.

Facing Brandon Davis in Vegas
BantamweightUFC
October 4, 2021
Batgerel (9-2-0) is scheduled to face Brandon Davis (14-8-0) in a bantamweight fight set for Oct. 16 at UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nolan King and Farah Hannoun of USA Today report.
ANALYSIS
The Mongolian-born fighter will return to the Octagon for the first time since April, after his most recent scheduled bout against Montel Jackson for September was cancelled due to Batgerel's visa issues. The promotion apparently doesn't have any concerns about Batgerel's ability to fight in Las Vegas in October, so he'll put his two-fight winning streak on the line when he takes on Davis, who owns a 2-5-0 career UFC record.

Second straight KO win
BantamweightUFC
April 24, 2021
Batgerel defeated Kevin Natividad via TKO (punches) at 0:50 of Round 1 at UFC 261 on Saturday in Jacksonville.
ANALYSIS
Batgerel has now won back-to-back fights via knockout since dropping his UFC debut to Heili Alateng back in August 2019. This victory came fairly easily, as all Batgerel had to do was sit back and clock an over-aggressive Natividad with one big counter shot. Batgerel has real power and is deceptively athletic. He hasn't really faced anyone of note in his career, but the 31-year-old has proven he has more than enough in the tank to get past fringe roster fighters such as Natividad. He should get a bit better opponent his next time out.
Scheduled to fight in April

February 13, 2021
Batgerel (7-2-0) will fight Kevin Natividad (9-2-0) at UFC 261 on April 24th, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports. A location for the fight has yet to be determined.
ANALYSIS
Batgerel will finally be able to re-enter the Octagon after his last fight in October didn't happen because of travel complications. The 31-year-old won his last time out via KO (punches) against Guido Canetti in March of 2020 and will look to continue his success in the UFC in a few short months.
