Khamzat Chimaev has a problem finding an opponent for next year. It seems like no one is ready to fight him. “Nobody wants to fight,” Chimaev said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. “F*** these boys. They gave me four different countries, four different opponents.
Nobody wants to fight”. Chimaev believes that no one is brave enough to face him at the moment. He put the accent especially on those who said many times that they wanted to fight with him. However, they are quiet now. “I’m going to fight somebody,” Chimaev said.
“I don’t know who. They change opponents all the time. Every week I have a new opponent, but nobody wants to fight. The guys trash talk loud about me and ‘I want to fight you, I want to fight you!’. When it comes to the fight and signing the contract, they want to run away”.
Khamzat Chimaev on his opponent
Khamzat considered the few options he had at this point. The opponent's name is not important to him. All he cares about is fighting! “I’m next for the title,” Chimaev said.
“Who are these guys going to fight? Alex Pereira has a 6-1 record. He lost. I’ve never lost in my life. He lost to a s*** guy, the guy’s not in the UFC as well. UFC don’t want it, the guy don’t want it, what am I going to do? I just want to fight.
Give me somebody. If the guys run away from me, just give me somebody. I’m ready”. We hope that Chimaev will have a suitable opponent. It will be an interesting fight that should take place in March next year. “I’m always ready,” Chimaev said.
“We’re going to see what’s going to happen now. I think we’ll hope so for Vegas in March, we’ll see, but I don’t know who [I’m fighting]”.
