The third number in the UFC welterweight rating, Khamzat Chimaev, who plans to return to the octagon after Ramadan, is going to storm the organization’s middle division and become the UFC champion by the end of the year.
“Pereira has a zero fight – I know that I will roll him out in the first round,” Borz said in an interview with UFC Russia. “He knows this, so he avoids me, he says that I didn’t fight somewhere, but I myself only made three fights in this weight. Let’s see what will come of it”
“I wanted to win the belt last year, but it didn’t work out. I hope to become a champion this year. I have won all my fights, never lost, and I am ready to win the title, but I think that I will fight Whittaker first.
“I would like to fight every two months, five times a year, but at this level they don’t give so many fights. When they pay a lot of money, they want to give only good rivals – I understand all this, so I’m waiting”
Israel Adesanya’s next middleweight title fight to take on Alex Pereira will headline UFC 287 in Miami on April 8.
