Russia

First stoppage win of 2022
LightweightUFC
January 15, 2022
Borshchev defeated Dakota Bush via TKO (punches) at 3:47 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN 32 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Making his UFC debut with all of six professional fights under his belt, Borschev -- who in known as a heavy-handed striker -- ended up recording the first stoppage victory for the company in 2022. The finish was the result of a gorgeous body shot which floored Bush, but perhaps the most impressive aspect of Borshchev's evening was how he worked his way back to his feet after Bush scored an early takedown. Every opponent the newcomer faces is going to do whatever is necessary to get him to the mat in an attempt to limit Borshchev's striking skills, and it's imperative he can survive those situations as he showed in this fight. Keep an eye on the 30-year-old moving forward. For now, he'll walk away with a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus after recording one of just two finishes on the evening.

First of three DWCS contracts

Borshchev defeated Chris Duncan via KO (punch) at 0:28 of Round 2 at Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series. After the show, he was one of three fighters to earn an official UFC contract.
ANALYSIS
Borshchev was the more precise striker during a back-and-forth Round 1, as he was landing with more consistency while avoiding the high-volume attack of Duncan. The second frame didn't take long, as Borshchev connected with a mean counter left hand that put his opponent's lights out, effectively cashing his ticket as a (+115) betting underdog. Despite having just six professional fights, Borshchev was able to get one of only three finishes among fighters who made weight, which all but guaranteed him a contract.
