Chris Barnett (USA), who suffered the pain of defeat after being hit in a “bad place” by the “Lion of Myeongseung” Myung Hyeon-man, will challenge for three UFC wins.
Barnett will face Chase Sherman (USA) in the heavyweight division at UFC 287: Ferreira vs Adesanya 2 on April 9 at Miami-Dade Arena, Florida.
Barnett is a friendly fighter who fought in the Korean martial arts group Road FC. In particular, it is famous for the two consecutive matches against Myung Hyeon-man in 2017. Barnett, who unfortunately lost by TKO in the first game due to a cut on his eye, suffered a low blow from Myung Hyeon-man in the second game that followed. Later, he won two KOs against Shim Gun-oh to restore his honor.
Barnett made his UFC debut in May 2021 with a short-term offer against Ben Roswell. Although he lost his debut game by submission, he has been doing well since then with 2 wins and 1 loss.
Barnett, who usually weighs 140kg, is the owner of a reversal charm that delivers sharp kicks compared to his huge body. A typical example is the picturesque back kick finish from the 2021 Gian Villante match. This is thanks to both his parents being black belts in taekwondo, so he learned taekwondo from the age of five. 메이저사이트
Barnett, who was famous for his pathetic love, also suffered from encephalitis in May of last year and sent his wife to heaven. Barnett received a call two days before his fight with Martin Buday that his wife was in critical condition. However, as the head of the family, he forced the game to pay for his wife’s treatment and child support, causing regret.
Barnett’s opponent, Sherman, who had a close relationship with Korea, is a former American football player. He also played as a bare-handed boxer with powerful punches as his main weapon. The UFC record is 4 wins and 10 losses. He worked as a firefighter on a part-time basis until 2021, but is currently focusing on training in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).
Meanwhile, the match between Li Jingliang (China) and Michael Chiesa (USA), ranked 13th in the welterweight division, will also be held at the same event. Li Jingliang is a fighter based in Wushu Santa, a Chinese martial art, and is the only Asian fighter since Kim Dong-hyun to successfully enter the UFC welterweight rankings.
