Khamzat Chimaev told Dana White he was willing to fight Brock Lesnar recently
Fight Island hosts another event for the UFC this weekend with Khamzat Chimaev already present in Abu Dhabi.
Borz, as Chimaev is called, doesn’t have a fight on his hands now. However, the Swede is searching for his next victim.
The Swede is undefeated in his MMA career and has won all three of his UFC fights in some style. Dana White has called him special and the next big thing, and that seems to be a problem for some.
Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson and Chris Weidman both have refused to fight Chimaev, according to the Swede.
The 26-year-old was speaking to the Schmo and was asked about winning a belt soon. Chimaev has fought in the Welterweight and Middleweight division and was asked in which one would he win a belt quicker.
The rising UFC star didn’t believe winning a belt was going to be a problem and he didn’t care about classes too:
“Both. Doesn’t matter for me, I like to fight, for me, weight class is no problem.”
Chimaev is so desperate for a fight, he even told White he wanted to take on Brock Lesnar:
“I said to Dana White I can fight with Brock Lesnar. For me, doesn’t matter.”
Unlikely clash against Lesnar
Lesnar is still one of the biggest names in wrestling and MMA and shocked the world by becoming the UFC Heavyweight champion just a few fights into his MMA career.
However, Lesnar was part of WWE until recently but him being a free agent has kept his options open.
It would be unlikely for Khamzat to get that clash, something the Schmo also pointed out. However, Borz did call out Darren Till but didn’t believe the British star was at his level.
Chimaev claimed that he could have three fights in a month while other UFC stars need four months to prepare for one clash.
It will be interesting to see what is next for the Swede, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if he does challenge someone out of his division too.
