One to Watch at UFC Kazakhstan: Roman Dolidze

Roman “Caucasian Wolf” Dolidze | 6-0 | 6’3 205 lbs. | Age 31 | Reach N/A | Orthodox Stance | Fighting Out of Odessa, Ukraine

Roman “Caucasian Wolf” Dolidze (6-0) will finally debut in the octagon at UFC Kazakhstan on June 13th.  This is the third try for Dolidze on the doorstep of MMA’s top promotion, the last two thwarted by injury in 2019. 

Roman is a Light Heavyweight hailing from a wealth of martial arts knowledge.  He was born in Batumi, Georgia and first took to the grappling arts.  Dolidze combined his love of Jiu-Jitsu and combat sambo to fight for the FILA World Grappling Championship in 2013.  He became the last strap winner that year after FILA grappling disbanded as a sport, Roman was just that good!

2016 was a huge year for Roman Dolidze, winning another grappling strap and making his MMA debut.  Now fighting out of Odessa, Ukraine, “Caucasian Wolf” took home the 2016 ADCC Asia & Oceania Grappling title for his supreme BJJ.  He found a new challenge in the cage and found more of the same success, a heel hook round one submission in his first fight!

Roman Dolidze is now the WWCF champ at 205 lbs. and looking to make his UFC debut on June 13th after six straight stoppages to start his career.  He aims to earn his fifth victory inside round one versus Khadis Ibragimov (8-2) at UFC Kazakhstan!
