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?
