Khamzat Chimaev Ready to Loser Connor McGregor
Khamzat Chimaev Ready to Loser Connor McGregor – The new monster of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Khamzat Chimaev is called the incarnation of Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Khamzat started his work at UFC in 2020. Of the 3 fights he has taken, the 26-year-old fighter has won them all.
The last battle took place on September 19, 2020, Khamzat only needed 17 seconds to win. He crushed Gerald Meerschaert at the UFC Fight Night event in Las Vegas, Nevada
Khamzat is said to be Khabib's incarnation because he started learning wrestling as a child and Khamzat started it when he was 5 years old.
Apart from that, Khamzat is under management similar to Khabib, with manager Ali Abdelaziz.
Khamzat is currently trapped in a cold war with Khabib's arch-rival, Conor McGregor. It all started when McGregor mocked Abdelaziz on social media.
He wrote 'Robert Earl Britton is The Man'. Releasing MMA Fighting, Britton is an alias that Ali Abdelaziz is thought to have used when he was caught up in a criminal problem in 2001.
Not only that, McGregor criticized the idea of a face-to-face UFC President, Dana White, with Ali Abdelaziz. He suspected that face-to-face was the idea of reuniting with Khabib.
McGregor's behavior was unacceptable to Khamzat. He was angry and issued a sentence that defeated McGregor. Khamzat calls McGregor chicken.
"Relax my brother, I will destroy this cowardly chicken for you," said Khamzat, quoted by the Daily Mail.
Khazmat and McGregor actually had the chance to meet in Abu Dhabi in January 2021. The two of them are planned to fight on Fight Island.
McGregor will challenge Dustin Poirier in a lightweight fight at UFC 257, January 23, 2021. Meanwhile, Khamzat will appear against Leon Edwards at UFC Fight Night 185 three days ago.
At that time, welterweight fighter Stephen Thompson saw that Khazmat and McGregor's match was not impossible.
Despite the class difference, he admits that Dana White forced Khamzat as Khabib's successor so that the charisma of the UFC did not disappear after leaving Khabib's retirement.
