Khamzat Chimaev Adamant He’ll Knock Out Alex Pereira in the First Minute of Their Fight

Khamzat Chimaev believes that Alex Pereira should be an easy fight for him. Since he joined the UFC in 2020, Chimaev has quickly defeated all but one of his six opponents, and he is sure that Pereira will follow suit. In November last year, Pereira said that Chimaev turned down a chance to fight him at 205 pounds which would have happened in January 2021. As per Chimaev, it was actually the UFC who made this decision, not him.

I asked them for a match with the middleweight belt and Sean Shelby agreed. But he changed his mind the day after and said I should have a fight with Colby first. Then, nothing was mentioned about that fight again.

Pereira said that he wanted to fight at 205, which is a different weight class than where he won his middleweight belt. But the UFC didn’t like that because Pereira and I are from 170 and 185 respectively, so why have us fight at 205? That’s probably why they never contacted me about the fight in Brazil. It doesn’t matter what weight class we’d fight at- it would be an easy win for me no matter what!

When Chimaev was asked to explain why he thought Pereira would be an easy fight, he said that in his career, it would take just one round and one minute to win – no punches at all.

In November, Paulo Pereira shocked everyone when he became the UFC’s middleweight champion, but this was only his eighth professional fight! Perez had previously won two kickboxing championships and in his third match against “The Last Stylebender” (Adesanya), he won by knockout in the fifth round.

On April 8, the fourth battle between Chimaev and Adesanya will take place. Chimaev hopes that this time Adesanya will win against his opponent Pereira by turning the fight into a wrestling match.

Chimaev believes that if Israel Adesanya trains with just wrestling in his training camp, he will easily beat him. According to Chimaev, Adesanya doesn’t have any skills when it comes to wrestling and the UFC likes him because he looks serious all the time. Chimaev doesn’t understand why they gave someone who has no wrestling experience a career in this sport.

A guy was fighting but I don’t know his current situation. During the match, he got beaten by a Brazilian fighter who is almost amateur. The reason why he lost is because the other fighter clutched him and wrestled with him until he got tired. This means if you are a kickboxer expert in striking, you can win most fights if it’s just boxing matches in the cage wearing small gloves. But if somebody else attempts to wrestle you instead, they will probably win against you as wrestlers have different skills compared to kickboxers.

Chimaev is planning to have two fights in 2023 which can take place either in Sweden during July or Abu Dhabi in October. In both cases, depending on the circumstances at that time, he might be facing Uzec Pereira or Leon Edwards who currently holds the welterweight championship title of UFC. He hopes to get into a fight soon but he doesn’t know yet if it will be with one of them.
