Khamzat Chimaev might have his next fight lined up for him at UFC 294 on October 21, in Abu Dhabi. In a recent video on his YouTube channel, the No. 4 ranked welterweight gave an update on his current status.

“UFC told us we have a fight in Abu Dhabi, so that’s what I’m waiting for,” Chimaev said. “I’m already here in Dubai, living here, training camp, everything is good, so I’ve been in shape a long time ago. I’ve been in Thailand training camp, I’ve been here training camp, I’ve been in Sweden training, so just waiting for the opponent and the contract, so we’ll see what’s going to happen.”

Khamzat: I’m going to fight this guy in Abu Dhabi

It seems like Khamzat Chimaev wants to take on former welterweight champion Kamaru “The Nigerian Nightmare” Usman in his return to the octagon.

“Usman wants to fight. I’ll make his last fight. He wants money, he knows where the money is. Everyone knows the money. Now I’m going to fight this guy in Abu Dhabi and smash his face, finish him, then they have to give me that title shot,” Chimaev said.

“I am ready, just sign the contract. Let’s fight. Let’s make money. You want the money, you want the money fight, let’s go. I’m going to squeeze your head off.”
