UFC star Khamzat Chimaev suffered a torn ligament in his right hand during his last fight against Kamaru Usman at UFC 294.

In a post on social media platform X, Chimaev revealed that he has been dealing with some pretty serious health issues since then.

“I was very sick, my hand was injured, so I couldn’t return right away. I want to tell all the fountains, I want to see myself in battle more than all of you, I love this job, I will do and prove that I am the best, as always we do, and I will be back soon to training Insha’Allah.”
