Khamzat Chimaev took to social media to toast for his massive weight loss at the UFC 279 weigh-ins.
In probably the greatest moment of his career Chamzat Chimaev has many fight fans concerned about the status of UFC 279’s main event. As of Friday morning, Chimaev weighed 178.5 pounds, 8.5 pounds over the 170-pound welterweight class and 7.5 pounds over the limit.
It is yet to be determined whether Nate Diaz will accept the fight after successfully weighing in. Chimaev quickly took to Twitter to embarrass himself for the massive weight loss.

In his post he mentions his friend and fellow player Darren Till, who jokingly attributes the weight error to Till. Until now, UFC279 was full of wild antics, from the brawl at Thursday’s press conference and subsequent cancellation to the massive underweight of the main event.
