Dana White Says Khamzat Chimaev Wants To Fight August 15, Will Make It Happen

Khamzat Chimaev

Khamzat Chimaev is not done just yet.

Chimaev fought for the second time in 10 days when he completely dominated Rhys McKee en route to a first-round TKO win in their welterweight bout on the main card of UFC Fight Island 3 on Saturday night.

Much like his dominant debut against John Phillips at UFC Fight Island 1, the damage was lopsided in favor of Chimaev who didn’t absorb a single strike against McKee.

And now, he wants to fight again at UFC 252 — with UFC president Dana White being receptive to the idea.

“Just spoke to @danawhite and he said @KChimaev “is special” and wants to fight again on Aug. 15 at #UFC252. He said he’ll make that happen.”

That means if confirmed, Chimaev will have fought three times in the span of a month.

If he makes it three wins out of three, it would certainly be one of the most memorable debut months in UFC history — if it isn’t already.

UFC 252 takes place August 15 in Las Vegas and will be headlined by a heavyweight title fight between current champion Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier.

What do you think of Chimaev wanting to fight again?
