Khamzat Chimaev thinks Belal Muhammad would be light work for him and it wouldn’t take him long to “take his head”.

Muhammad is coming off a dominant win against Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson. Muhammad was able to hold Thompson down for the entirety of the fight. Thompson is one of the best strikers in the welterweight division, but he continues to struggle against wrestlers inside the division.

Muhammad recently said that fighting Chimaev may be the biggest fight in the entire division for him. He would like a chance to stop the hype train and get a “Conor Mcgregor level win” over him.

“He (Chimaev) has the most hype in the division right now. He has that (Conor) McGregor X-factor stardom right now, where the fans think he’s untouchable. The boss thinks he’s untouchable. They all think it’s just a matter of time before he becomes champion. So for me, if I beat him, I steal all of his hype, and I think it’s worth more than beating anybody ranked in the division. Beating him is probably worth more than beating Colby Covington just because of all the hype he has right now.” (Transcribed by MMAJunkie)

Khamzat Chimaev doesn’t think Belal Muhammad is really up for the challenge and took to Twitter to call him out

Chimaev had to fire back a meme of his own as well.

Chimaev is undoubtedly the most polarizing figure in the welterweight division and may be the biggest name in the entire promotion. He lives to fight, and is literally out there to kill people as he has stated. He is still undefeated in the UFC and as a professional MMA fighter. Chimaev has barely even been touched inside the octagon in his UFC fights.
