Chimaev: I will be number 1 soon


Chimaev responded to all the comparisons to Khabib Nurmagomedov, including the amusing nickname “Khabib” (since Chimaev is a large 170 pounder to Khabib’s 155).

“I like this guy, this guy is, I think I don’t know, pound for pound number one?” Chimaev said. “Yeah, I think he’s pound for pound number one. He’s 28 wins? Yeah. But soon … I’m going to be pound for pound number one. I’m gonna be champion. I have eight fights, eight finishes. I destroyed everybody. I’m going to do this. Next fight also.
