Khamzat Chimaev is known for his weight fluctuations between 170 pounds and 185 pounds. Chimaev has issues with weight, and the UFC asked him to move up a division after missing weight at UFC 279. Borz was supposed to face Nate Diaz but missed weight and fought Kevin Holland at the PPV.

Chimaev has not fought since defeating Holland last year. There were rumors of Chmaev fighting Paulo Costa in Abu Dhabi. However, that bout will not materialize after the UFC booked Costa for a bout at UFC 291. Chimaev might face Kamaru Usman in Abu Dhabi this year. On the other hand, Jalin Turner is coming off a loss against Mateusz Gamrot via a split decision.

Both teammates chose to spar with each other as video of the camp surfaced. Both can be seen practicing their moves in the cage, and Chimaev also showed a takedown attempt. However, Jalin did not shy away from defending the takedown. The size difference between both fighters became the major talking point in the MMA community.
