Khamzat Chimaev has now cemented his position as one of the tallest welterweights in the UFC roster. The Swede made his debut against John Phillips in 2020 and is currently on a five-fight win streak. “The Borz” was extremely dominant in most of his fights until he met Gilbert Burns at UFC 273.
It was the biggest challenge for Khamzat Chimaev as Burns gave him a very competitive fight. It was the first time the fighter faced someone who almost defeated him. After three rounds of brutal showdown, Chimaev was unanimously declared the winner. Some fans believed the decision was unfair and Burns should have won the fight.
After beating the Brazilian, Chimaev showed the world what he’s capable of and is a real threat for the World Cup belt. Currently, the fighter is ready to take on Colby Covington later this year. The date of the fight is yet to be announced, but fans are very excited for this duel.

Quinton Jackson does not know Khamzat Chimaev
Jackson recently did an interview with the schmo where he talked about his current life, UFC and MMA fighters.
During the conversation, Schmo asked the UFC legend for his opinion on the hype surrounding Chimaev. While answering the question, Jackson revealed that he had no idea who Chimaev is and asked what organization the fighter belonged to. The former UFC light heavyweight champion also asked Schmo about Chimaev’s weight class as he looked completely confused. Jackson then explained that he didn’t know the guy because he doesn’t watch MMA regularly anymore.
“who is this guy I don’t know this one…which organization is he fighting against? What weight class is he in, I don’t know, I haven’t met him. Yeah I don’t watch MMA that much anymoree,” Jackson said.
It was surprising to know that Jackson has no idea who Chimaev is as he is currently the most popular fighter in the martial arts world. But it seems like after 20 long years as a professional MMA fighter, Jackson has finally decided to stay away from the sport and enjoy his retirement.
