Kamil Gadzhiev: “I would not be surprised if in a few days we learn that Chimaev is leaving MMA”

Head of AMC Fight Nights promotion Kamil Gadjiev told that he would not be surprised if mixed martial arts fighter Khamzat Chimaev retired soon.

Earlier it became known that Russian fighter Ikram Aliskerov will replace Chimaev, representing the United Arab Emirates, in a fight with Australian Robert Whittaker at the UFC tournament in Saudi Arabia. It was reported that a native of Chechnya refused the fight due to serious illness; the fighter had been hospitalized.

— Khamzat’s UFC career started quickly. Now everything is sort of out of whack. He was seriously ill with Covid. Remember, he was producing fights every month and was the most active fighter in the UFC. And one day he almost stopped fighting. I wouldn’t be surprised if in a few days we learn he’s quitting MMA. Apparently, Covid is making itself felt, MMA seems to have taken a back seat.

— There’s also the fact that we often hear about his championship ambitions, but he doesn’t have a visa for America and is missing the tournament in Saudi Arabia.

— You know, the absence of a visa also affects motivation. The big fights are America. And when you realize that things might not end in big fights, it affects you. I think the visa issue can also influence Khamzat’s decision to stop the fight,” Gadjiev told .
