How do people think Khamzat is too small for MW it's just mind boggling

    Khamzat Chimaev is wrestling with Guss the mauler and he takes him down with ease. So saying he's weak for looking skinny is just dumb and trust me he is mauling Gerald!

    Maybe he should train with Werdum, because he took Alex down so fast and tapped him, made him look like a white belt. Alex always had great TDD too.

    I don’t think it’s the wrestling that concerns people. He almost got knocked out by a sambo guy no one remembers the name of...put on his ass cold. So what would someone like....let’s say, a Thiago santos at MW do to him? He’d go to sleep fast. When he can make WW as fast as he did, he’s really not a true MW

    That random sambo guy was also only undefeated and his only loss is to Khamzat......That dude didn't become a world Champion in Sambo on accident buddy! Just saying

    But you still don’t know his name. I’m sure you’ll google it now. But off the cuff he’s “that guy”. I’m not saying he wasn’t talented. But in the ufc you’re going to fight guys with better striking. That are harder to take down. Plain and simple.

    Agreed. At the moment, until hes fought someone ranked ultimately hes still a hype train. Im a fan aswell but its true.

    Noone knows still if his size is going to he a problem at MW until he fights the bigger, tougher guys at MW.

    Someone like Cannonier for example.

    I’m not saying he’s a bad fighter...but the size difference between a ufc top 15 guy, and a sambo guy on a regional circuit is going to be substantial.

    I’m not saying Khamzat isn’t a great fighter. I’m saying he’s not going to get away with things he did before. There’s a difference between bold and reckless. If he’s not careful he’s going to end up on the wrong side of that line

    Because we want to see if Chimaev is legit.

    I wasnt expecting you to agree with me given theres 3 threads on Sherdog about his size. (kinda weird) but its true. He hasnt been tested.

    Why make stuff up to prove your point lol? First of all that "random Sambo guy" was a multiple time Sambo world champ who was undefeated before the Chimaev fight and had more hype than Chimaev at the time, will likely join the UFC soon as more brave signings come in.

    Second of all, where in that fight does that guy come close to "almost knocking him out"? The stand-up was uneventful at the start with Khamzat throwing more and setting up feints. Then he knocks the Sambo guy dead with one of the most beautiful uppercuts. Please show me where the Sambo guy "almost knocks out" Chimaev

    Petr Yan is also an incredibly decorated boxer. You’re being ridiculous. No ones saying sambo is a bad base.

    Look, there’s a difference between getting knocked out by “some Muay Thai guy” on a regional card, and Anderson Silva....
