Conor McGregor Wants Khamzat Chimaev be Punished After UFC 279 Drama

By: David Smith

Khamzat Chimaev has become one of the biggest villains in UFC because of his botched weight cut ahead of UFC 279. Chimaev missed the weight by 7.5 lbs.

Following that UFC had to shuffle three UFC 279 fights on the main card and book a new co-main event between Khamzat Chimaev and Kevin Holland.

Khamzat Chimaev also did not receive any cut in his fight purse of UFC 279 despite missing weight by a huge margin. And that did not sit well with Conor McGregor.

As per Conor McGregor, UFC should have removed Khamzat Chimaev from UFC 279 completely instead of offering him a fight against Kevin Holland on the co-main.

McGregor even claimed that Kevin Holland is an easier matchup for Khamzat Chimaev than Nate Diaz, who is fighting Tony Ferguson now.

Conor Mcgregor even bashed Khamzat Chimaev for laughing on the scale after missing the weight limit by a huge 7.5 lbs.

"My opinion they should have pulled Khamzat from the card entirely. Reconfiguring bouts and with a more favorable bout for the failed cutter, will only make others in the game follow suit."- Conor McGregor

What do you think about Dana White's decision to not punish Chimaev, who is a huge prospect for the company, after such a huge blunder?
