The UFC struck hot with Georgia in 2020 with breakout performances from Ilia Topuria, Guram Kutateladze, Roman Dolidze, Giga Chikadze, and Roman Dolidze. There have been a few outside the UFC making their case for a big opportunity and Gogoladze is one of those. In his last fight taking out a veteran like Pavel Kusch in under a minute put his name right on the map.
Gogoladze is a highlight-reel finisher on both the feet and on the mat. He is extremely slick on the mat, especially off his back. He’s a sharp submission hunter and that shows with three submission victories and by three different submissions. He’ll utilize a lot of feints on the feet which set up the eventual finish. Gogoladze throws a dangerous head kick and just very tricky and explosive.
