Athletistic/ MMA. Chechen-born Swedish fighter Khamzat Chimaev has said what he expects from his closest rival, American Nate Diaz.

“I don’t think this guy can even last one round, but I hope he survives the five. He will show up and leave the UFC as a warrior. If I beat him in the first round, everyone will say that Diaz is too old and Uncle Nate will have to come home,” Chimaev said.

The duel between Nate Diaz and Khamzat Chimaev will take place on September 11 as part of the UFC 279 tournament in Las Vegas in the United States. Diaz has 20 wins and 13 losses in professional mixed martial arts. Chimaev’s MMA stats are 11 wins, 0 losses, 0 draws.
