The UFC Welterweight fighter, Khamzat Chimaev recently faced the rage of UFC fans on social media for making a controversial comment about the former UFC Lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Chechen leader, Ramzan Kadyrov was inviting Khabib to come and fight the Chechens of Akhmat in a live video and he offered him an amount, whatever he demands for this fight. Chimaev can be seen commenting in a part of this video, he would “tear apart” Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Khabib’s brother, Abubakar Nurmagomedov warned Khamzat to be careful about the words he is using against ‘The Eagle’. Kadyrov also said about hosting this fight under the flagship of UFC.

But during a recent interview, Khabib told reporters, “I just didn’t think that it was all necessary to react to this or something else, Every person has their own opinion, so let it be. I did not watch the live broadcast of Ramzan Kadyrov, I just read what you [media] write.”

“How did I feel? Nothing. The whole world is discussing me. I do not see any insults in the expression ‘UFC project’.” {H/T RT Sports}

Khabib Nurmagomedov also said that Kadyrov also made reference to Al Iaquinta about working with him on a project. He says, “The fact of his work as a realtor was known, Everyone who wanted to underestimate my merits wrote about it. But at the time of the fight with me, Al had five victories in a row – no-one took that into account.”

‘The Eagle’ added that whatever Khamzat says, doesn’t matter for him as he never expected something from him. “I didn’t have any disappointment in Chimaev, I have never seen this person. We talked with him on the phone a couple of times.”

“You know, disappointment happens when you expect something from a person, some kind of return. But I never expected anything from Chimaev. If he thinks [things], let him write – that is his right.”

Khabib took this as a professional and responded to Chimaev in a classy way.
