Khamzat Chimaev challenged the strongest representative of Israel to a fight

Popular Chechen fighter Khamzat Chimayev, who is continuing his preparations for his fight with Brazilian Paulo Costa, spoke out about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and challenged Israel’s strongest representative to a fight.

“You are just guests in Palestine – respect them for giving you asylum,” Borz wrote on social media, addressing Israelis. “One day you will be expelled from Palestine. Give me the strongest man from Israel – I will break him.”

This message was later deleted, but Chimayev made it clear that he had not done so.

“I didn’t delete it – it was blocked,” the UFC fighter wrote in response to a corresponding question from a subscriber.

Khamzat Chimaev, 29, is undefeated and riding a six-fight win streak in the UFC, and his fight with Paulo Costa takes place Oct. 21 at UFC 294 in Abu Dhabi.
