Khamzat Chimaev Pledges to Smash 'Chicken' McGregor as Irish Fighter Has Spat With Khabib's Manager

Russian-born Swedish mixed-martial artist Khamzat Chimaev has taken to Twitter to throw down the gauntlet to Connor McGregor and threatened to beat him hard, calling the Irish fighter a chicken. 

Chimaev’s comments followed a short clash on Twitter between his manager Ali Abdelaziz and McGregor, who took to the social media platform on Saturday morning and posted a mysterious message that read “MeDanaAliGonnaGetcha”, hinting at a rematch with UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. The tweet was soon deleted, but Chimaev’s manager, who also manages Nurmagomedov, responded quickly and accused the Irish fighter of speculating about a rematch.       

​Ali Abdelaziz also mocked McGregor’s appetite for rematches and posted a list of his clients who are in line to challenge "The Notorious".      

26-year-old Chimaev will face British MMA fighter Leon Edwards on 21 January. The fight is a highly-anticipated showdown, as the bout between the two has been rescheduled several times due to both testing positive for COVID-19.
