Khamzat Chimaev is eagerly anticipating news about his next fight and expects to be part of the UFC 294 pay-per-view event in Abu Dhabi. Having gained popularity with his performances on “Fight Island” in 2020, Chimaev believes he is a strong candidate for the upcoming card.
Chimaev is currently training in Abu Dhabi and has expressed interest in facing former welterweight champion Kamaru Usman. He is confident in his abilities and aims to finish Usman in their potential matchup, ultimately positioning himself for a title shot.
Usman, who recently suffered consecutive losses to Leon Edwards, has not revealed his future plans. Meanwhile, Chimaev has been eager to return to the octagon since his victory over Kevin Holland last year. He believes his fights generate substantial interest and draws a large audience.
With aspirations for a title shot in either the welterweight or middleweight division, Chimaev views Usman as a logical opponent to bring him closer to his championship dreams. He challenges Usman to sign the contract and emphasizes his readiness to compete in any weight class.
Chimaev’s confidence and determination highlight his ambition to make a mark in the UFC and secure a lucrative fight while seeking championship glory.
