Khamzat Chimaev calls out The Rock after defeating Gerald Meerschaert

The Rock was called out by UFC star Khamzat Chimaev

Khamzat Chimaev wants The Rock to see what he is cooking

UFC rising star Khamzat Chimaev seems to be full of confidence after his recent win and called out The Rock.

Chimaev is 3-0 in the UFC and is 9-0 in his short but eventful MMA career. The 26-year-old has won all his three fights via knockout or submission in the UFC and was at it again.

He faced off against American Gerald Meerschaert and defeated his latest rival in 17 seconds. One punch is all it took for the Swede to get the win, and he wants attention from wrestling legend The Rock.

Hopefully, Chimaev isn’t calling The Rock out for a fight given that the WWE star isn’t into fighting anymore.

However, The Rock is still one of the toughest people out there and his training regime could break several top MMA stars.

Chimaev might just want some attention from the legend, and it will be interesting to see if The People’s Champion responds.

Chimaev ready for his next fight

Borz, as Chimaev is called, is certainly on a high and he already has his next opponent in mind. Dana White spoke about how special Chimaev is and had set him up against Demian Maia next.

This was done even before he fought Meerschaert and that should be a real test for the Swede. Many believed that the American Meerschaert would be the actual litmus test for Chimaev but he decimated his opponent in the first round.

The UFC seems to have found someone special as Chimaev has won all his three fights in dominant fashion and in the span of just over two months.

Chimaev’s first two UFC wins came in the span of 10 days and they were in two different weight classes too.
