The 34-year-old American, dubbed “The Haitian Sensation,” began competing professionally in 2020. He joined the UFC in 2013 after fighting in the C3 Fights promotion and The Ultimate Fighter reality TV series. Having amassed a 19-7 record in the UFC, he became tied with Georges St-Pierre for the most wins in Welterweight history when he defeated Max Griffin in March 2022 at UFC on ESPN 33. After joining the promotion, he won the fight via a split decision for his nineteenth victory. He is ranked Number 10 in the UFC Welterweight rankings.
I look at Shavkat and I think the exact same thing. The guy is talented. He is 15-0. … But at the same time, he hasn’t fought a seasoned vet like me yet. He hasn’t fought the guys that I’ve fought yet. So I’m going to go out there and show him that there’s some levels to this game. That’s my goal.
