UFC Middleweight Darren Till feels that Khamzat Chimaev is the only legitimate superstar in the UFC right now. Till talked about the same during his appearance on Submission Radio and said that people hating on Khamzat after UFC 273 is uncalled for.

“It’s like, people are saying, ‘oh, well Khamzat, he took this punch and that punch, and he was messing about, warming up before the fight with Darren’. It’s like, guys, the guy was number 11, he’s had four fights in the UFC and he just came in and beat the number two guy. Like, are you for real?” Till said. “How can you hate on the guy for that s***? Like, the guy’s a f****** superstar,” Till said (h/t MMA Fighting).

The UFC Star further went on to note that Khamzat took everyone on after coming to the UFC.

“The guy’s the only legitimate superstar right now in the UFC, up and coming. The rest of the guys, there’s a lot of up-and-comers in the UFC right now, and it’s good to see them up and coming, but they’re slowly working their way up. Khamzat’s just come in the UFC and just took everyone on. It’s like, who else has done that?,” Till added.

Speaking further, he noted that Khamzat should be fighting Colby Covington next.

“I would like to see him fight Colby in a five-round main event, and I think that’s the best thing for both guys. I think Khamzat can knock him out. I don’t think Colby’s felt power like Khamzat. Like, I’ve changed my opinion a bit, because Colby’s a good fighter, but I just don’t see who he’s fighting who’s at the top of the top of the level right now,” he added.
