Khamzat Chimaev trolled welterweight king Kamaru Usman on Twitter. Chimaev next faces Gilbert Burns, a fight he hopes to win en route to becoming the world welterweight champion.
Kamaru Usman, on the other hand, has been pushing for a boxing match with Canelo Alvarez, who is currently the WBC, WBO, WBA, IBF and The Ring super middleweight champion. Canelo has thrived in the boxing world, competing in multiple weight classes and collecting all the belts widely regarded as the world’s best pound for pound. He’s one of the biggest stars today.
Chimaev hilariously trolled the UFC’s pound for No. 1 pound and posted a video of it Kamaru do some very slow padwork. Kamarus’ movement mimics the speed of a turtle, a fact Chimaev has not overlooked. Chimaev wrote the caption, “Canelo should be very scared that this is the guy who is going to hit him (shrug emoji).”
A cross-promotional event between the MMA and boxing worlds can lead to an event like Conor vs. Mayweather, an exciting match for fans of both sports. However, UFC President Dana White isn’t too keen on the idea of Usman vs. Alvarez. When asked about the potential fight, Dana said: “I think he means it – he shouldn’t mean it. I don’t like this fight at all. Everything about it is terrible. Usman is not a boxer. Canelo is probably the best guy out there right now. It’s a stupid fight that doesn’t make any sense.”

What next for Kamaru Usman and Khamzat Chimaev?
Kamaru Usman will protect his UFC welterweight title when he fights Leon Edwards, which has even been confirmed by UFC President Dana White. With an amazing but clean record, Edwards is at the top of his game and deserves at least a shot at the title, despite many people thinking differently.
Chimaev has a big welterweight fight of his own coming up UFC273. Before what will no doubt be a lively and brutal contest, the Chechen warrior will take on competitor Gilbert Burns. If Khamzat wins, there’s a very good chance the UFC will offer him a chance to unhook the belt from Kamaru.
