Khamzat Chimaev no longer follows Dana White, Sean Shelby and Darren Till on Twitter.
Chimaev last fought at UFC 279, where he defeated Kevin Holland in the first round to improve to five wins in the UFC, but that’s half the story. ‘Borz’ was scheduled to face Nate Diaz in the UFC 279 main event, but after missing the welterweight limit by nearly eight pounds, he was demoted to the co-main event against Holland.
Since then, Chimaev’s relationship with the UFC seems to have turned a little sour, with Dana White recently saying that he hasn’t fought in a while because of personal issues, something the Sweden-Chechen denied.
In a recently uploaded video on YouTube, Chimaev went as far as saying that he isn’t getting the love from the promotion since he’s not American.
“I don’t know what UFC wants to do,” Khamzat Chimaev said. “They give it to Colby that chance. When he win his last fight? I don’t remember. Who did he win against? Nobody. He’s a nobody, he wins against nobody. Usman broke his chin two times. He knocked down that guy.
“He is s*** and they give that chance for him because maybe he’s from USA. They want the belt for him. I’m from Sweden, I live in Dubai, so maybe they don’t want to give that belt to me. So, only that thing I see. I don’t know what else. Maybe they have good plans for me, I don’t know. I trust that guys, so we’ll see.”
Although Chimaev is rumored to fight Kamaru Usman at UFC 294 in October in Abu Dhabi, it’s clear that he’s not happy with the UFC’s top brass. So much so that he’s unfollowed them on Twitter. Even Darren Till got the boot.
