The UFC’s #14 ranked featherweight, Giga Chikadze, just scored the biggest win of his MMA career when he stopped longtime MMA veteran Cub Swanson with a Gigakick in just 63-seconds into the UFC Vegas 25 co-main event. Giga threw a head kick first, followed by a straight, and then came the missile to the liver of Cub. The moment the body kick connected, Swanson began to backpedal in serious pain. Chikadze landed a couple of ground strikes before it was all said and done, to capture his biggest name to date.
