With 4 finishes in his first 4 UFC fights, Khamzat Chimaev is one of the biggest prospects in UFC right now.

Chimaev has stunned the fight fans with his elite wrestling and vicious knockout power.

Khamzat Chimaev takes on Gilbert Burns next in the main card of UFC 273. If Chimaev wins then he is likely to fight for the UFC welterweight title.

But, Khamzat Chimaev already has his eyes set on the UFC middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya. In fact, he believes Adesanya will be an easier fight than Adesanya.

In a recent interview with Ariel Helwani, Chimaev talked about the Adesanya fight and stated: “Izzy, I think it will be more easy for me to smash that guy. He has zero wrestling. The guy he fought last time, he’s not a wrestler — he took his back. If I take his back, brother, I’ll squeeze his head off. I’ll take his head off. Easy money for me.”

So far Khamzat Chimaev has looked unbeatable inside the octagon. He has elite wrestling, scary knockout power and he has a size advantage over most of the UFC welterweights.

There is a big possibility that Khamzat Chimaev will be a two-division champion in the near future.

We have already seen Chimaev outwrestling UFC middleweight Jack Hermansson in a recent wrestling match.

So it will be intriguing to see how a fight between Chimaev and Adesanya plays out.
