Khamzat Chimaev had a very successful start to his mixed martial arts career. His UFC 279 win over Kevin Holland improved his record to 12-0. While Chimaev was shrouded in controversy all week leading up to the fight, he was able to put on a stunning performance in the octagon.

Kevin Holland deserves all the credit for accepting an unenviable assignment at the last minute, but…

Look at the stat sheet that Khamzat Chimaev imposed on him. Fully laundered in *every* category. Bonkers.

Khamzat Chimaev continued his streak of dominance that led many to believe he will one day be champion. After his fourth consecutive victory over a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Chimaev’s trainer pointed out that his fighter is exposing fake black belts, saying on Blockasset:

“I’m making Khamzat expose all the fake Brazilian jiu jitsu black belts that are in the MMA storyline. Why? Because nowadays people just get belts like they go to McDonalds. They don’t get the job done. “He just got that purple belt. How many black belts in his career has he finished? So it shows, that’s about it. I use it to expose a lot of guys.

Chimaev’s last four opponents were all Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belts, however, Gilbert Burns was the only one to come out of the first round. ‘Durinho’ went neck and neck with the Russian, knocking him down and bleeding him. Chimaev still walked away victorious with a unanimous decision in his favor.

Daniel Cormier on Khamzat Chimaev

Daniel Cormier has long been one of Khamzat Chimaev’s biggest supporters. In 2020, just three fights in Chimaev’s UFC career, Cormier, one of four double champions in UFC history, shared that he expects the No. 3 becomes the UFC’s fifth two-time champion.

Going into UFC 279, Cormier was supportive of Chimaev and even tried to give him some training tips. Despite the contentious week, Cormier continued to support Chimaev, going so far as to issue a weight-cut challenge to fans who were giving the fighter a hard time.

Although the challenge is interesting, most fans are well aware that weight reduction is strenuous for fighters. However, many feel that it is part of the job.

Cormier would also share that he can’t wait to see Chimaev as the “bad guy” and hopes he embraces him, stating:

“I get that right now he’s the bad guy and I like a bad guy, and I would love for him to embrace that…Make him the bad guy, I think he likes that, and we all need that. ‘a bad guy. The world doesn’t work with all good guys. We need bad guys and Khamzat Chimaev is more than willing to play that.”
