Khizriev was supposed to make his UFC debut back in April against Kyle Daukaus, but had to withdraw due to COVID-19 protocols. Khizriev has a 13-0 MMA record and was able to get a deal with the UFC after submitting Henrique Shiguemoto in Dana White's Contender Series back in September.

Khizriev is in line for a middleweight matchup against Kyle Daukaus at the UFC event scheduled for April 10, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Khizriev needed less than a minute in the cage to submit his opponent on Contender Series this past September, and is entering the UFC with four first-round stoppages in his previous five bouts under the banner of Fight Nights Global. In fact, nine of his 13 professional wins have been earned via stoppage. He'll give up pretty sizable height and reach advantages to Daukaus, a fellow Contender Series alum who is 1-1 in official UFC fights.
