‘He has zero wrestling’ – Chimaev previews Israel Adesanya match-up to be easier than a fight with Kamaru Usman

Khamzat Chimaev is known for his dominant display inside the octagon and personality high on self-esteem. Chimaev has won all four of his fights inside the UFC octagon by finishes and has competed in the welterweight and middleweight divisions. The nature of his supremacy is reflected in a never seen before stat which shows that he’s only been at the receiving end of a cumulative three strikes in his four matches.

He made an appearance alongside his new ‘best-friend’ Darren Till on the recent episode of The MMA Hour. Speaking about potential fights in the future, Chimaev said that he believes Kamaru Usman would be a tougher competition for him than jumping up in weight class and competing with middleweight king Israel Adesanya.

“‘Izzy,’ I think it will be more easy for me to smash that guy,” Chimaev told MMA Fighting. “He has zero wrestling. The guy he fought last time [Robert Whittaker], he’s not a wrestler — he took his back. If I take his back, brother, I’ll squeeze his head off. I’ll take his head off. Easy money for me.”
