Khamzat Chimaev calls on UFC legends Brock Lesnar and Georges St-Pierre before challenging Daniel Cormier to wrestling match


Khamzat Chimaev certainly has no fear when it comes to calling out UFC legends and has thrown the gauntlet at three big names this week.

The 27-year-old is 10-0 as a mixed martial artist with a four-game winning streak in the UFC.

He is fast becoming a big name in the UFC, but has yet to book a new opponent to try to keep his momentum going.

Instead, Chimaev is eyeing MMA royalty.

The welterweight tweeted former heavyweight champion and WWE star Brock Lesnar: “Let’s fight until one of us leaves the cage.”

He also messaged Georges St-Pierre and said, “New UFC king against a legend. What you think?”

Chimaev then turned his attention to Daniel Cormier, who retired from the sport last year.

He said, “Let’s do a brother wrestling match, what do you think?”

Cormier replied, “In a real wrestling match? Are you crazy Khamzat? I love that you are confident, but bro, it’s 10-0 DC! “

Chimaev then replied: “I am the one who is 10-0 undefeated that I win.”

The Russian-born fighter is hoping to get a big name for his next fight after a victory over Li Jingliang last month in Abu Dhabi.

This earned him a fourth consecutive night bonus performance.

It has been an eventful 18 months for the Russian-born bout, which won three fights in just over two months in 2020.

This upward trajectory took a heavy blow when he tested positive for Covid-19.

The lingering effects of the virus have caused his fight with Leon Edwards to be canceled three times.

But now it looks like he’s back on track with Dana White previously admitting he was “one or two fights away from a possible championship.”
