Khamzat Chimaev calls for fights against Georges St-Pierre and Brock Lesnar, wrestling match against Daniel Cormier
It appears Khamzat Chimaev wishes to battle anyone nowadays.
On Monday night, the unbeaten UFC welterweight provided a variety of difficulties to mixed martial arts legends to satisfy him inside the cage or on the fumbling mat.
Chimaev (10-0 MIXED MARTIAL ARTS, 4-0 UFC) just recently handled fellow UFC fighter Jack Hermansson in a freestyle fumbling match in Sweden and won on points. Constantly starving for competitors, Chimaev tossed a couple of darts at the board by means of social networks to see if anything would stick, requiring battles versus previous UFC champs Brock Lesnar, Georges St-Pierre, and Daniel Cormier.
“Let’s fight till one man leaves the cage,” Chimaev composed to previous heavyweight champ Lesnar.
“New king of UFC vs. a legend. What you think?” Chimaev used to previous two-division champ St-Pierre.
“Let’s make a wrestling match brother, what you think?” Chimaev asked to previous champ-champ Cormier.
Cormier rapidly reacted with a message of his own. “In a real wrestling match?” Cormier responded. “Are you crazy Khamzat? Love that you’re confident, but brother this is 10-0 DC!”
Chimaev’s series of concerns got the attention of a minimum of one previous champ, and it appears Cormier is positive their clash on the mats would be a total nothing.
Chimaev entered the cage at UFC 267, effectively returning from a major bout with COVID-19 to beat Li Jingliang in the preliminary by submission. A couple of weeks later on he beat Hermansson in a fumbling match and is now currently trying to find more action on the mats.
While he does not have another mixed martial arts bout in the works at the time, opportunities are he won’t be far from the cage for too long considering his activity prior to being badly ill.
