Khamzat Chimaev will next fight at middleweight

Popular Chechen fighter Khamzat Chimaev, who recently announced he would be returning to the octagon after Ramadan, will fight his next UFC middleweight bout, Borz trainer and manager Andreas Michael told Submission. Radio.

“He will be middleweight,” said the Swedish specialist. “He will fight at middleweight if we are not offered a welterweight title fight. Miracles happen and if we are lucky enough to fight for the title we can move up to welterweight, don’t worry.”

In the middleweight division, Chimaev has at least one contender fight.

“He will be even stronger at middleweight and we are ready to face the best fighters in the division immediately. We need a contenders fight or a title fight, preferably the second option, and I think he deserves it.

Khamzat Chimaev, 28, the No. 3-ranked UFC welterweight, earned his sixth straight win in the world’s strongest league flag last September, finishing with a first-round choke submission by Kevin Holland.

Chimaev previously said he wouldn’t mind facing former UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker in his next fight.
