On October 1, in the opening match of the Euroleague 2021/22 regular season, UNICS will host Zenit at the Basket-Hall arena in Kazan.
Fighters with a bright and engaging image have always been in demand in MMA, even if their results left much to be desired. Johnny Walker is a prime example of this. It was assumed that two defeats in a row alienated him from the prospect of fighting against the strongest representatives of the light heavyweight division of the UFC for at least a few next appearances. But in fact, in his case, one not the most confident victory was enough to reach the top of the division. One way or another, the new opponent of the shocking Brazilian will be his compatriot and league veteran Thiago Santos. And this is a great matchup, as both fighters are now in dire need of victory and represent kickboxing school, which is why their meeting, which will take place on October 3 as part of the main event of UFC Fight Night 193, promises to be remembered by the audience for its tension and entertainment.
