Khamzat Chimaev Blasts Paulo Costa’s Resume
In an interview posted on his YouTube channel, Khamzat Chimaev took intention at “Borrachinha,” pushing aside the Brazilian bruiser’s resume (h/t MMAJunkie.com).
“Paulo has spoken a large number of sh*t about me,” Chimaev mentioned. “That man, I wish to destroy him. I wish to kill this man. I used to be doing a large number of issues, and he desires to battle with the opposite man. The man, I fought him a very long time prior to – 3 or 4 years in the past, prior to UFC. I win in opposition to that man.
“I believe the fellow will beat him, as neatly. Paulo isn’t just right. He’s sh*t. He simply talks an excessive amount of. He beat no person. An in depth battle in opposition to Romero, simplest fighter he wins in opposition to. Folks, I don’t know. No person is aware of those guys. I don’t know who he beat.”
Costa has expressed his need to battle Chimaev down the street. Ultimate 12 months, he advised Ariel Helwani on MMAFighting’s “The MMA Hour” that he took a piece of Chimaev’s momentum.
“I believe, Chimaev [is the fight to make], yeah.” defined the Brazilian. “I stole a few of his hype, I stole his night time of sleep, I stole his cap, I stole his primary match battle, I stole the whole lot.”
Costa then egged Chimaev on, pronouncing that he must battle him to take the whole lot again. Chimaev was once reasonably dismissive of combating “Borrachinha” on the time. He additionally poked a laugh at Costa for the hump taunt Israel Adesanya did to him after their 2020 UFC Middleweight Championship battle.
Time will inform if Chimaev vs. Costa will come to fruition someday.
