Nigerian-born fighter Chidi Njokuani to make Welterweight debut against Rhys McKee at UFC Atlantic City

Nigerian-born fighter Chidi Njokuani is set to make a significant move down to the welterweight division as he prepares to face Rhys McKee in the main event of UFC Atlantic City this Sunday.

Njokuani’s decision to drop to welterweight surprises many, especially considering his previous stance against moving down to 170 pounds. However, he is determined to make an impact in his new weight class after experiencing some setbacks in his UFC career.

The 28-year-old Njokuani, who holds a record of 2-3 in the UFC and has faced three consecutive losses in his recent fights, so he understands the importance of this bout. With his job possibly on the line, he is motivated to deliver a strong performance and turn the tide in his favor.

On the other hand, Rhys “Skeletor” McKee, also 28, is returning to the UFC after being cut from the organization in 2020 following a brief winless stint. McKee, with an UFC record of 0-3, is eager to prove himself and secure his spot in the promotion.

As Chidi Njokuani and McKee prepare to face off, fans are anticipating an intriguing matchup. While Njokuani’s kickboxing skills and striking prowess are commendable, he must address his weaknesses in takedown defense and defensive grappling, as well as improve his cardio and chin resilience against pressure fighters.

The stage is set for an exciting showdown between two determined fighters as they vie for victory at UFC Atlantic City.
