Khamzat Chimaev is ready to fight Gilbert Burns in Brazil. Last day, Burns had called out Khamzat for a fight in Brazil via Twitter and on his YouTube channel, Khamzat reacted to the callout and said that he is ready for the Brazilian.
“Everybody is talking about me, but nobody wants to fight with me because we kill everybody. For me, it doesn’t matter. Gilbert Burns talked about Brazil. I’m more Brazilian than him because my coach is Brazilian. I’m a blue belt under Alan ‘Finfou’ (Nascimento). I know many times my coach smashed (Burns), too, on the mats,” Khamzat said (H/T MMA Junkie)
He further went on to add that he is going to choke out Burns when the match finally happens.
“We are going to choke him out. A ‘Finfou’ blue belt against a black belt. I like this guy, actually. He’s a funny, nice guy. I want to fight with him. But in war, brother, I can’t be nice with somebody. I want to eat everybody. Take my money. Take my belt. I’m so hungry. When I talk about fighters, I’m hungry. I hope I will fight in Brazil, as well. Nice country. Nice people,” Khamzat added.
The undefeated star also took time out to respond to the rumors of a fight with Neil Magny.
“People talk about a fight with Neil Magny; I don’t know why UFC didn’t make this fight. I can smash him tomorrow. Tomorrow, tonight, I don’t know. It doesn’t matter. He’s such a skinny guy. Look at him, and look what he did against Li Jingliang, and look at what I did to him. You see the different level,” Khamzat said.
