Gerald Meerschaert sounds confident of getting the better of rising UFC star Khamzat Chimaev
Khamzat Chimaev might be one of the rising stars in the UFC but he has a tough fight next. The Swede is 8-0 in his MMA career and has won both his fights in the UFC.
Chimaev defeated two stars in the span of 10 days and in two different weight classes. The UFC has big plans for him but Gerald Meerschaert has something else on his mind.
The American is Chimaev’s next fight and has threatened to destroy the 26-year-old. Meerschaert is 31-13 in his MMA career and lost his last fight to Ian Heinisch.
However, he has a ton of experience and will provide a stiff test for Chimaev. Meerschaert has taken shots at the Swede ever since the fight was called, and he did so again.
The American posted a funny meme of the Undertake and AJ Styles from their WrestleMania match.

The UFC has already set the next target for Chimaev as he is to face Demian Maia next. However, if Meerschaert has his way, Chimaev won’t be in shape to fight anytime soon.
Chimaev unfazed by Meerschaert
While Meerschaert has taken a ton of shots at Chimaev, the Swede doesn’t seem to be affected. He seems to let his fists do the talking and already has called out two other stars.
Nick Diaz is set to make his return in 2021 and has been training with his brother Nate. Chimaev called the pair out and claimed he could take both of them on the same night for easy money.
While Chimaev has already broken a record or two since coming to the UFC, facing two fighters on the same card would be something extraordinary.
However, he first needs to get the better of Meerschaert and that won’t be a walk in the park.
