Cristiano Ronaldo asks Khamzat Chimaev to ‘Smesh Everybody’

Cristiano Ronaldo is no stranger to the MMA World. The Manchester United star was earlier seen hanging out with Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor and now, Ronaldo has befriended another UFC superstar: Khamzat Chimaev.

Khamzat revealed the same in a video on his YouTube channel and revealed that Ronaldo will be tuning into his upcoming fight.

“He has a game, that’s why he said he couldn’t come. But he’s gonna watch my fight. When he started following me, I write to him, ‘he’s the champ’. Then he write, ‘smesh everybody’… 100% brother. Then I invited him to my fight, Ronaldo. But I’m not a big fan of football, but this guy is big. One of the best guys in the world playing games, football. He’s a nice guy,” Khamzat said (h/t Essentially Sports)

Khamzat Chimaev is currently 10-0 in his professional MMA career and has been on an impressive run in the UFC. Chimaev made his UFC debut back in 2020 against John Phillips and has gone on to win three fights after this. All of Khamzat’s wins so far have come via stoppages.
