UFC fighter Khamzat Chimaev said that reigning welterweight champion Kamaru Usman is more interesting to him than middleweight title holder Israel Adesanya.
“My coach chooses the weight class. If he wants me to fight in welterweight, then I fight. If he wants middleweight, then I also fight. Both weight classes are mine, they are suitable for me.
Of course, I find it more interesting to fight with Usman than with Adesanya, because he has a good fight. Everyone says that he is a good fighter. I want to show America that the Russian wrestling school is the best.
I will prepare in the All Stars hall, but I will invite the wrestlers to my place. There are good wrestlers in Chechnya, it is not necessary to invite an Olympic champion or a world champion. You can take a master of sports of a good level. Anyway, wrestling in MMA and on the carpet are completely different things. I need a wrestler who can fight at the net, “said Khamzat Chimaev in an interview with the YouTube channel” Let me interrupt you. “
