“I think it will be much easier Gilbert is like you know, hard fight with Gilbert [Burns] because he is like good in the ground as well. He is not bad in wrestling as well but I could wrestle with him. I took him down easy”

Chimaev added, ”Colby is not the same type of guy. Colby, I can take him down, I can knock him out. Usman dropped him, Masvidal dropped him. So why not me?”

Khamzat Chimaev is currently the third-ranked welterweight fighter in the UFC. Upon beating Colby Covington, he would become a valid title contender. However, Kamaru Usman is expected to get his shot against champion Leon Edwards first.
