Khamzat Chimaev continues to troll Conor McGregor: “Call your uncle Dana”

"I will be ready"

It seems like breakout UFC star Khamzat Chimaev will continue to troll, provoke and do what is necessary to get a fight with Conor McGregor.

The Sweden-based Chechen Chimaev broke out after winning two UFC fights in just ten days, all of a sudden becoming one of the hottest contenders in the welterweight division. Taking to social media, he has taken aim at McGregor, and seems hell bent on getting a fight with the Irish superstar.


The two had the chance of encountering each other much earlier, however. Chimaev claimed in a recent interview that he jumped on a plane to Ireland to challenge McGregor to a fight. He was stopped by authorities, though, and sent back to Sweden.

Chimaev has drawn many comparisons to UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, for his powerful, wrestling-heavy fighting style. So far he has submitted John Phillips and then TKO’d Rhys McKee. The Chechen has sicne expressed desire to fight again as so+on as possible, though visa restrictions may put the brakes on those plans. He has called out Demian Maia as well, amongst others, but clearly he has the biggest interest in fighting McGregor.
