Khamzat Chimaev forced Neil Magny to surrender

The twelfth UFC welterweight, Neil Magny, asked for a fight with Khamzat Chimaev, and the American got the opportunity to fully experience what it’s like to face the Chechen Borz.

The fighters crossed paths in New York’s Henzo Gracie Gym and tested each other’s skills on the ground. An excerpt from a video posted online shows Chimaev dominating an opponent, landing a triangle choke and forcing a submission before they get up and start over.

“Chimaev has a top-level fight, but as soon as the fight goes to the ground, he will fall into my world. I am not afraid of this and I am ready to compete on the ground with anyone, ”said the American in May last year.

Recall that at the moment Neil Magny is preparing for a fight against Gilbert Burns, which will take place on January 21 at UFC 283 in Rio de Janeiro, and Khamzat Chimaev does not yet have an appointed fight, but according to rumors, Colby Covington may become his next opponent, ranked second in the division.
