The UFC welterweight competitor Kamzat Chimaev is eagerly waiting to smash down his following opponent in his next fight. Or, at least, his very recent tweet suggests so.
The Russian-born fighter hasn’t engaged in a bout since his last face-off against Kevin Holland at UFC 279 in September 2022. While the reason for this still remains a mystery unanswered, people across the web are rumored to be suspecting a USADA issue.
But the fighter has, since his last fight, expressed several times that he is more than willing to engage in a bout. But UFC isn’t throwing any fights his way. In his recent tweet, Chimaev expressed his readiness to fight at the next UFC events.
“I am ready to fight in Paris ready to fight after in abu dhabi let me smash somebody.”

In his previous tweets as well, ‘Borz’ has mentioned him awaiting a fight. He even mentioned undergoing many training camps but to no avail.
“I have no problems with fights if they gave me a fight, I would have fought a long time ago, I did so many training camps and not one fight, the problem is definitely not with me, prepared in Dubai then to Thailand, why do I train so much if there is no fight, I don’t understand,” he tweeted.
Khamzat debuted his UFC career in 2018 and has been fighting flawlessly since. The fighter was a professional wrestler before he stepped into the rings of MMA. After assuming his position as an MMA fighter the Russian hasn’t lost a bout, maintaining his winning streak.
Currently, ‘Borz’ holds a super impressive record of 12-0. The list of achievements for Khamzat is long, as he is a three-time Swedish national Wrestling champion.
