Michael Bisping has backed Khamzat Chimaev to win at UFC 273 against Gilbert Burns. The former UFC middleweight champion has admitted that he is officially on the Chimaev hype train and briefly spoke about the Russian-born Swede’s most recent win over Li Jingliang.

In a recent video uploaded to his official YouTube channel, Michael Bisping claimed that he is leaning towards a victory for Khamzat Chimaev. However, Bisping admitted that he would like to be proved wrong by Burns:

“I’m gonna lean towards Khamzat and I’m sorry Gilbert, I know we’re buddies, I know we’re friends but if you see this, I hope you prove me wrong, because I do, I do apologize. But you could say that I’ve been sold the hype. I’m just telling you, what he did to Li Jingliang just blew my mind, that was so impressive, Jingliang ain’t no slouch… and Khamzat just picked him up and he looked like he could’ve done whatever he wanted to… he was talking to Dana White and stuff like that, and he’s talking about becoming the champion, he’s talking about becoming the champion at 185.”
