Khamzat Chimaev continues his undefeated journey in the UFC as the fighters in the promotion are yet to land a clean strike for the third time on the Breakout Star of the Year who trains at Allstars Training Center, Sweden. Now we have a real problem. If things go as it is, UFC will find it hard to get opponents for Khamzat Chimaev.

BORZ has left a trail of carnage in his path cementing the most dominant run following the UFC debut in the promotion’s history. Chimaev used two of his fights to showcase his incredible wrestling and jiu-jitsu in July by winning his first two UFC fights in Abu Dhabi. When he faced the veteran who talked more, Chimaev finished Gerald Meerschaert with a short and powerful right hand.

Meerschaert, the veteran from Milwaukee took more time to walk into the cage than face ‘Borz’ as the fight ended in just 17 seconds after it began. Meerschaert was clearly overlooked by the UFC throughout the Press Conference especially with the double booking for Chimaev, believing it disrespected him.

We stand in support with Meerschaert (31-14-0) who took up the fight and faced Chimaev. Indeed Meerschaert had an illustrious career and many top fighters have nothing to do when it is their turn to face the prodigy who is a brilliant wrestler and a bloodthirsty striker. Borz is now 9-0 and 3-0 in his UFC career.

The next focus from Chimaev will be to pressurize Dana White with demands for multiple fights per fight night as Chimaev progresses in the UFC. A big prediction could be a request to face an entire fight team especially that of Conor McGregor in the same night. In the coming days, multiple major names could announce unexpected injuries.
