Khamzat Chimaev is certainly unafraid when it comes to calling out UFC legends and threw the gauntlet at three big names this week.

The 27-year-old is 10-0 as a mixed martial artist with a four-game winning streak in the UFC.

Chimaev is calling out the biggest names in sport

He’s quickly becoming a big name in the UFC, but he hasn’t signed a new opponent yet to try and continue that hot streak he’s on.

Instead, Chimaev is looking at MMA royalty.

The welterweight tweeted to former heavyweight champion and WWE star Brock Lesnar: “Let’s fight until one of us comes out of the cage.”

He also messaged Georges St-Pierre and said: “New UFC king vs legend. What you think?”

Chimaev then turned his attention to Daniel Cormier, who retired from the sport last year.

He said, “Let’s do a wrestling match brother, what do you think?”

Cormier replied, “In a real wrestling match? Are you crazy Khamzat? I love that you’re confident, but bro, this is 10-0 DC! «

Chimaev then replied: “I am the one who is undefeated 10-0 I win.”

The Russian-born fighter will hope to secure a big name for his next fight after a win over Li Jingliang last month in Abu Dhabi.

It earned him a fourth consecutive performance of the nightly bonus.

It’s been an eventful 18 months for the Russian-born bout, who won three fights in just over two months in 2020.

That upward trajectory took a hit when he tested positive for Covid-19.

The lingering effects of the virus caused his fight with Leon Edwards to be shelved three times.

But now it looks like he’s back on track with Dana White previously admitting he’s “a fight or two away from a possible championship.”
