Khamzat Chimaev blasts Paulo Costa with subtle jibe amid unclear future at UFC

Khamzat Chimaev took a sly shot at Paulo Costa pertaining to his health concerns. A image of Costa with the phrase, “Real fighter, real weight,” was uploaded by Chimaev on social media. Costa has previously struggled with weight loss.

The comment is a subtle jab at Costa’s competence. Chimaev isn’t afraid to voice his ideas or engage in light-hearted humour despite the fact that his future in the UFC is still up in the air. Fans have taken notice of the subliminal jab, which has generated discussions about future pairings.

Khamzat Chimaev mocks Paulo Costa

As he continues to poke fun at the former UFC title challenger, Khamzat Chimaev has made it clear how little he likes Paulo Costa.Following rumours of a fight at UFC 294 in Abu Dhabi, which ultimately did not happen, tensions between Chimaev and Costa grew. Since then, both fighters have occasionally engaged in tense confrontations.

Fans continued to grill ‘Borz’ about his next fight as Khamzat Chimaev tried to make fun of Costa’s hair transplant. Since defeating Kevin Holland at UFC 279 in September, the 29-year-old native of Chechnya has not entered the octagon.

Despite his repeated callouts and stated desire to fight difficult opponents, Chimaev has unable to land a battle, which has increased the anticipation for his upcoming fight.

When will Khamzat Chimaev make his UFC return

Concerning Khamzat Chimaev and his potential return to the octagon, speculation is growing. But it appears that his upcoming appearance has been confirmed. The Swedish fighter appears to have disclosed that he will compete in a major pay-per-view later this year in a training montage video that has been shared online.

‘Borz’, although still being one of the sport’s most well-liked prospects, faced a lot of anger from fans after grossly underestimating his weight for his last fight against Nate Diaz. Viewers were disappointed that they were unable to witness him engage in combat with the Stockton local, despite the fact that he got to perform against a different foe.

Chimaev will take part in the UFC 294 pay-per-view on October 21 at the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi if that is where he prefers to fight next. The freestyle wrestler hasn’t fought in almost a year; this will be his first cage appearance following his convincing victory over Kevin Holland in September of last year. The celebrity claims that while aggressively seeking a battle, he has encountered numerous opponents who are unwilling to square up against him.

His opponent for UFC 294 is still not known, but all indications appear to point to a decisive title eliminator contest with the formerly long-reigning champion Kamaru Usman.
