“I am the MONEY FIGHT,” Khamzat Chimaev explains what makes him more exciting than Jorge Masvidal, Israel Adesanya and others

Chimaev has also talked about how earlier people used to run away from fighting him dismissing his skillset and aura as a promising prospect. Now within just 5 UFC fights, Chimaev is one of the biggest names in the company.

Khamzat Chimaev is a well-known name now and he is coming to avenge using his aura against everyone who denied fighting him back when he was on a call-out spree. Chimaev, the #3 ranked UFC welterweight, is fighting UFC megastar Nate Diaz in what will be Chimaev’s first main event in the UFC and Diaz’s last fight in the UFC. Chimaev is 11-0 undefeated and is coming off the biggest win of his career after defeating Gilbert Burns at UFC 273 via unanimous decision.

Chimaev is either close to or has already achieved the status of a megastar. Some of the names you can safely associate with the term “megastar” without any dispute are former simultaneous 2-division champion Conor McGregor, UFC welterweight and BMF champion Jorge Masvidal, UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and UFC Hall of Famer Khabib Nurmagomedov.

In an interview for The Mac Life, Khamzat Chimaev talks about his fight against Nate Diaz, him idolizing Diaz for a long time before starting MMA, his take on the welterweight title fight between Leon Edwards and Kamaru Usman and much more. Chimaev then reacts to Jorge Masvidal calling him out for a fight and in the flow of his response where he claims to be the real money fight today, name drops Conor McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Israel Adesanya as well.

“I don’t think so he wants to fight me actually,” says Chimaev “Now everyone will understand when I beat that guy, money fight is me. Only me, you know. Everyone was running from me because I am a bad fight for everyone… Conor’s away, he’s on some movie s**t, Khabib is out, Israel doesn’t make good fights. Nobody wanna see that guy [Israel] fight. Now only I make real fights… I think I’m already the biggest star in the UFC, nobody wanna see those guys…” continues Chimaev.

Do you agree with Chimaev claiming to be the biggest star in the UFC right now? Who do you think Chimaev should fight after the Diaz fight to make another super-fight? Also, do you agree with other claims by Chimaev such as Masvidal not being willing to fight him OR Adesanya not making good fights for the fans? Do you think Chimaev will become a UFC champion in the future?
