Adin Ross has often been associated with big names like Andrew Tate, or the UFC. As a rising social media sensation, it is understandable why he has collaborations with a lot of big names. However, the YouTuber may have jeopardized his connections with the UFC after leaking Khamzat Chimaev vs Kamaru Usman.
Recently, the social media star went on stream and accidentally leaked a mega UFC PPV later this year. A regular attendee of UFC events in the United States, Ross has become something of a fight fan of late. As such, it would stand to reason that he also has friends in high places in the UFC.

However, not knowing that the fight was yet to be announced, Ross took it upon himself to do the honors. “Bro, ya’ll are p*ssing me the f*ck off. You don’t know? Usman and Chimaev. Like damn, bro. October 21. Ya’ll didn’t know that you casuals?” Thereafter, Ross immediately realized his error stating, “Oh, wait. Did I just…”
To his horror, Adin was informed by the chat that he had just leaked a big UFC PPV. Judging by the date, October 21, the fight will most likely be on the UFC 294 card. Previously, the UFC announced that it would be making its return to Abu Dhabi at the Etihad Arena in October. However, whether this fight will be the headliner, remains to be seen.

Chimaev vs Usman Early prediction
Although the fight may have been leaked, it was something that we knew was in the works for a while now. Recently, UFC President Dana White hinted that Chimaev could potentially make his return in October. Moreover, Borz and The Nigerian Nightmare recently took to Twitter to tease the fight as well. Whilst Chimaev previously stated that he would be moving up to 185, it seems that he will be a 170 lb’er for a bit longer.
Previously, Chimaev made a meal out of Kevin Holland at UFC 279. Having missed weight by a substantial margin, Chimaev was swapped out of the main event for Tony Ferguson. As such, it would appear that Chimaev has seemingly made a U-turn and decided to pursue his welterweight title dreams instead.
For the most part, Usman will likely be Chimaev’s biggest challenge so far. Despite having dominated against most of his opponents, Chimaev struggled against Burns, who took him to deep waters. Thus, Kamaru, who has now lost two on the bounce, will be looking to get back to winning ways. Moreover, a name such as Chimaev would be the perfect scalp for him to get back into contention for the title.
With both fighters being very competent wrestlers, we could be seeing a recap of the Burns where both engage in an all-out firefight. Here, there is a lot of danger for Chimaev, who cannot make the same mistakes that he did against Burns. On the other hand, Usman’s age and worn-out knees could become serious problems, should the fight go to the ground. With all that said, Chimaev is likely to be the favorite to win this one.
