Chamzat Chimaev is not at all impressed by the middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. The fighter from Chechnya is trying to grab two belts and believes it would be easier for the two divisions to capture the middleweight belt, so…

Both middleweight and welterweight are ruled by Nigerian kings. The two champions are Israel Adesanya and Kamaru Usman respectively. The two fighters have lapped their weight class and don’t seem to have much of a challenge right now. Chimaev, eager to capture both belts, looks to Adesanya for easier loot.

“Izzy, I think it’ll be easier for me to smash this guy[Kamaru Usmam]” said Chimaev in conversation with Ariel Helwani. “He has zero wrestling. The guy he fought last time, he’s not a wrestler… he turned his back on him. If I grab his back, I’ll crush his head off. I’ll take his head off. Easy money for me.”

Khamzat now has four fights in the UFC and has fought at both welterweight and middleweight. However, the change in weight class did not slow down “Borz”. The fighter went through all his opponents and finished them all in a dominant way. The fighter is currently 10-0 in his professional fighting career.

Chimaev may be one win away from the welterweight title shot, but he wouldn’t mind claiming the 185-pound belt just because Izzy now holds the title. Do you think Khamzat is a good matchup for Israel Adesanya?
