Popular Chechen fighter Khamzat Chimaev, who plans to hold another fight under the UFC banner in August, explained the origin of the scar on his neck.
“There was an operation on the thyroid gland,” Khamzat Chimaev explained in an interview with ChGTRK “Grozny”. “Half of it was removed or completely, I do not know. I feel very well now. Sparring, wrestling, grappling, gym-everything is going well. I thought that I would feel much worse after the operation and the coronavirus, but everything is fine. Our doctors did a good job, the head of the republic Ramzan Kadyrov helped. I feel great “
Recall that due to coronavirus infection, Khamzat Chimaev lost a challenger duel with Briton Leon Edwards, a victory over which would have guaranteed him a fight with the reigning UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. Presumably, in August, Chimaev will meet with the American Neil Magny, who occupies the eighth line in the official ranking of the division.
