Khamzat Chimaev, who lost weight ahead of his welterweight bout with Nate Diaz at UFC 279, is fully embracing his new role as a heel.
Chimaev (11-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) weighed 8 pounds over the 170-pound limit at the official UFC 279 weigh-in at 178 pounds. He has been relegated to the co-main event and he will take on Travis Lute BJJ standout Kevin Holland at 180 pounds.
Khamzat gets booed at UFC, 279 ceremonial weigh-ins, but undefeated Chechens seem to feed from crowd energy, in interview with Joe Rogan when flipped the bird.
Here’s what he had to say, every MMA addict: “I don’t know, they stopped that sh*t (weight loss). Hey, it’s Chechen bastards. Shut up, guys. I’m going to fuck your kid, and I’m fucking him backstage.”
“I don’t care, I want to smash everyone to death. I’ll do it Here (come) to fuck everybody. I’m going to take over it now.”
UFC 279: Diaz vs. Ferguson will be in Las Vegas tonight, September 10th Held at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
