Khamzat Chimaev is challenged to a bout by Belal Muhammad.
“I do not think Colby is going to be fighting (Khamzat Chimaev) Colby’s out here hiding. He’s doing his own little thing. He’s definitely not fighting Khamzat. The people talk about (Covington) like he’s the next big thing, but who has he beating that’s won? He’s beaten to Masvidal on a three-fight losing streak. He’s beaten Woodley like on a five-fight losing streak. Everybody he’s fought and (beaten), they’re all coming off losing streaks. The only fight he had a good fight on was (Kamaru) Usman, and then he ended up getting finished in that fight. Other than that, everybody has been losses. He hasn’t been fighting these top guys. I just beat (Vicente) Luque who was on a seven-fight winning streak. I just beat (Brady), who was on a 15-fight winning streak. I’m the only one fighting guys that are on winning streaks.
“I didn’t see (Chimaev) in the crowd, but I’d like to see him in the cage. I’ll fight you at 179.8. I don’t care about weight. I want to fight the best guys in the world, and I think I’m the best guy in the world, so step into my office.”
