Video: See Khamzat Chimaev buy homeless man food

"Khamzat Chimaev has a heart of gold"

Proving to be someone to keep an eye on regardless of athletic prowess, Khamzat Chimaev has shown championship character by buying a Las Vegas homeless man food from McDonalds. His friend and training partner Guram Kutateladze caught the act of kindness on video, which was later uploaded to MMAnytt’s YouTube and our sister site

“He will not like that I post this, but my brother (Khamzat Chimaev) has [a] heart of gold,” Kutateladze wrote about his training partner buying the homeless man food.


Chimaev is currently in Las Vegas at the UFC performance institute preparing for a middleweight showdown with Gerald Meerschaert this weekend at UFC Vegas 11. Undefeated Chimaev has finished all of his wins, including two dominant performances in the UFC.

Making his debut on short notice, Chimaev bulldozed John Phillips en route to a second round submission victory. He then TKO’d Rhys McKee in the first round less than two weeks later. Meerschaert is 2-2 in his last four outings, most recently coming off of a TKO loss to Ian Heinisch, but having submitted Deron Winn in his previous bout.
