Born in former Soviet republic of Georgia, Giga Chikadze knew he had to relocate to pursue a career in kickboxing. Already outfitted with a Kyokushin karate black belt, he made camp in the Netherlands to learn Dutch style kickboxing.

In early 2015, Chikadze moved to California to expand his already versatile striking arsenal with master Rafael Cordeiro. There he met Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, who stepped into a sort of mentor role for the younger fighter.
