Michael Bisping has nothing however reward for Khamzat Chimaev following the latter’s flawless victory towards Kevin Holland at UFC 279.
The UFC was nearly pressured to cancel the occasion after Khamat began a brawl earlier than the press convention after which missed weight by seven and a half kilos the next day (his matchup with Diaz was canceled), however Bisping thinks ‘Borz’ greater than made up for his shortcomings together with his efficiency on Saturday night time.
Khamzat made fast work of Holland after submitting ‘Trailblazer’ with a D’Arce choke within the first spherical, and Bisping was impressed. Significantly impressed.
“Chimaev wanted that type of efficiency,” Bisping stated on his YouTube channel (h/t MMA Junkie). “He prompted the press convention to be canceled, he didn’t make weight, your entire card received a shakeup by way of who they have been preventing, and that was all all the way down to Chimaev, proper?
“And when you go on the market and also you lose, otherwise you go on the market and have a boring combat, otherwise you simply scrape by a call, it’s not one of the best look – actually contemplating what you prompted. The effort, the stress, the expense, all of that, nevertheless it doesn’t matter. That’s eradicated as a result of he went on the market, and he destroyed Kevin Holland.”
Bisping additionally likes that Khamzat unapologetically flipped off the gang after lacking weight and thinks UFC president Dana White and Co might have a brand new Bondesque supervillain on their palms.
“The UFC formally has a brand new tremendous villain,” Bisping stated. “I’m, after all, speaking about Khamzat Chimaev, ‘Borz,’ the ‘Wolf.’ Come on, when he walked out to that combat, the boos from the gang have been like nothing I’ve ever heard. I used to get booed a good bit, as properly, however that took the biscuit. That was psychological.”
“He didn’t give a sh*t, after which he’s flipping off the gang, then he’s speaking sh*t, and he’s speaking about killing folks left, proper and middle. Hear, I completely like it. It brings loads of controversy, it brings eyeballs, and it’s very, very polarizing. … He’s a legit dangerous man. He’s straight out of a Bond film.”
Chimaev is at present #3 within the UFC welterweight rankings, however his subsequent combat is anticipated to happen at middleweight.
