Khamzat Chimaev is bulking up!

The UFC recently announced a blockbuster fight for its upcoming pay-per-view event, UFC 294, on October 29th. Khamzat Chimaev, the undefeated sensation who took the MMA world by storm in 2020, will face Paulo Costa, the former title challenger who is looking for redemption after his loss to Israel Adesanya.

This fight has been in the making for a long time, as both fighters have been trading insults and challenges on social media for months. The rivalry reached a boiling point when Chimaev called Costa “Katsaso”, which means “glass” in Chechen, implying that he is fragile and easy to break.

Chimaev posted a photo of his physique on Instagram, showing off his impressive muscles and abs. He captioned it with “Katsaso I coming for you”, tagging Costa and UFC president Dana White.

Costa responded by posting a video of himself hitting a punching bag, mocking Chimaev’s accent and saying “Borz, I’m waiting for you”. He also added “You are skinny” and “You are dead” in the comments section.

Both fighters are confident in their abilities and have promised to put on a show for the fans. But who has the edge in this epic showdown?

Khamzat Chimaev: The rising star

Khamzat Chimaev is one of the most special fighters in the UFC, according to Dana White. He made his debut in July 2020 and quickly racked up four consecutive wins, three of them by first-round finishes. He also set a record for the shortest time between two UFC wins, only 10 days.

Chimaev has shown his versatility and dominance in both welterweight and middleweight divisions, displaying his powerful striking and wrestling skills. He has also earned praise from fans and media for his charisma and confidence.

Chimaev was scheduled to face top-ranked welterweight Leon Edwards in December 2020, but the fight was postponed several times due to COVID-19 complications. Chimaev suffered from severe symptoms and even contemplated retirement at one point.

However, after a year-long hiatus, Chimaev is back and ready to resume his quest for glory. He has been training hard and bulking up for his return to the middleweight division, where he last fought in September 2020. He recently posted a photo of his physique on social media, looking as good as ever.
