Who is Khamzat Chimaev fighting next?
Daniel Cormier has revealed who he wants to see Khamzat Chimaev fight next.
Chimaev has taken the MMA world by storm since making his UFC debut in 2020. The 28-year-old holds a promotional record of 6-0 with five wins inside the distance. The question is, what’s next for ‘Borz’? During an episode of DC & RC, Cormier had this to say about who he wants to see him fight next:
“My last fight [I want to see in 2023], I gotta see [Khamzat] Chimaev against one of the top three. I need to see him versus either [Leon] Edwards, [Kamaru] Usman, or [Colby] Covington… These three guys have separated themselves from the division in the regard that they’ve hung around the top for the longest… I wanna see Chimaev in there against one of those guys.”
There has been interest from fans and analysts to see Chimaev fight Colby Covington next, but ‘Chaos’ has disappeared since his altercation with Jorge Masvidal. Meanwhile, Kamaru Usman is expected to get an immediate rematch against Leon Edwards for the UFC welterweight title.
Assuming he can make the welterweight limit, ‘Borz’ against Covington in a number one contender fight would make the most sense.
