Khamzat Chimaev’s coach reveals details of his injury and surgery. The undefeated welterweight fighter ‘Borz’ is all set to enter the octagon at UFC 267.
The Swedish fighter almost retired from the sport due to the COVID-19 virus. However, he has fully recovered and ready to dominate the roster again.
In a recent interview with Frontkick.online, Khamzat Chimaev’s coach Andreas gave an update about his health and many other things.
“We have a mission we need to get the belt. He’s 170, let’s go for 170 and get the belt. Right up down the guy had an operation. He’s had like a cyst in his neck which was like a four-centimeter cyst was about this big.” – he said.
“And they removed and resolved. Corona is a scar on his lungs. He’s had like a problem with his knee. So we fixed all that now. Now he’s ready. People in trouble.”
He added, “He’s a better Khamzat, a much better Khamzat now. Because he has time to work and he will get better. Condition wise he can already do three rounds. There’s no problem with that. We had a problem with the knee.
“He’s already in shape, he can already do three rounds. But he’s worried about his wrestling so we have to be like complete with something you know.
“And not like difficult in saying like Ah! We don’t accept fights. No, we are not like that. We have to have a goal and a mission and stick to that.”
Chimaev will finally return to the octagon in October. He has signed a contract with the UFC and will face Li Jingliang inside the cage.
