Zimbabwean mixed martial artist Themba Gorimbo continues to elevate the nation’s presence in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), defeating American fighter Ramiz Brahimaj in a welterweight bout yesterday.

 Gorimbo, known as ‘The Answer’ in the Octagon, secured a unanimous decision victory (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) in Las Vegas, United States, making a strong statement of intent.

“Grateful to win, and grateful for all those who helped me with everything.  Thank you all, and on to the next one. I am going to be better and do better. Big shout out to Ramiz for being part of this journey,” Gorimbo said after the match.

This victory marks Gorimbo’s third consecutive win in the UFC, showcasing his dominance and skill. The bout took place mainly in the clinch, where Gorimbo, leveraging his height and strength, controlled the fight against the defence. Despite Brahimaj’s attempts at trips and takedowns, Gorimbo consistently thwarted these efforts, often reversing the position to end up on top.

Gorimbo’s performance not only highlights his prowess but also solidifies his status as a rising star in the UFC.
