Ben Askren isn’t guaranteed just how good Khamzat Chimaev is and he is not getting the hoopla fairly nevertheless.
Chimaev is established for his third UFC combat this Saturday when he battles Gerald Meerschaert. It will be Chimaev’s toughest fight to day. Nevertheless, he is still a huge favorite but Askren isn’t so positive if the hoopla is genuine.
“The tough portion about it is, we saw him twice in the UFC,” Askren stated to Submission Radio (by way of MMAFighting). “But the 1st male he fought, John Phillips, he’s 1-4 in the UFC. So, he was incredibly unsuccessful. And the 2nd person he fought was a new addition to the UFC. So, he has not won a UFC battle. And so it’s like, ok, well, he surely smashed these men, there is no doubt about that, but are these guys Gerald Meerschaert stage competitors? And the solution to that, is no, they are unquestionably not. So, sometimes individuals can glance good in opposition to guys who are not as very good, and then when they move into a minor competition, it is a great deal tougher. So, I really do not really know what to hope out of Chimaev. I know Gerald is truly very good, he’s genuinely challenging. But yeah, I never know about Chimaev however.”
If Khamzat Chimaev can defeat Gerald Meerscheart the buzz will no question be real. But, Askren is not all set to connect with him the subsequent Khabib Nurmagomedov just still.
