After a lot of searching, Khamzat Chimaev found someone to fight next with Borz taking on Leon Edwards at UFC Fight Night 186 in the main event.
The Swede had called out several stars such as Stephen Thompson but none of them accepted the fight.
Borz was to face Leon Edwards in the UFC in December, however, that fight was postponed after a covid-19 positive test.
