Giga “Ninja” Chikadzes arrives at UFC Ultimate Sound

Giga Chikadze has made his presence known since coming to the UFC. The Georgian has put his elite-level kickboxing skills on display and has made quite the impression on the fanbase since his arrival.

Like all other UFC Athletes, Chikadze places a great deal of importance on the role that his mixes play in his everyday life and preparation for competition. But it’s not just in the preparation that music is integral, but when it comes time to make the walk out to the Octagon that Chikadze derives much-needed inspiration from music. The featherweight contender tells UFC Ultimate Sound that he uses to walk out to rap songs for the walk, but now chooses to walk out to Georgian warrior music.

The music from his homeland is a melody that his people used before the war. By walking out to the traditional music, it serves to bring his motivation to the next level and represent the Georgian people at the same time. If Chikadze’s recent performances are any indication of the effect of the music, its impact is likely deeper than we even realize.

The song choices of UFC Athletes for their warm-ups, workouts, and walkouts reveal a lot about their character. For Chikadze, the beginning of fight week means the creation of a new playlist specific to that competition. Let the well-thought-out mixes of Chikadze tell you something about him as a person and inspire your greatness.
