Khamzat Chimaev does not like Khabib Nurmagomedov, the former UFC lightweight champion, as Chimaev’s latest comments on Chechen politician Ramzan Kadyrov’s Instagram Live session demonstrate.Kadyrov and Khabib Nurmagomedov had previously been friendly, and the two had been photographed together on multiple occasions. Kadyrov’s most recent Instagram live comments seemed to indicate that their relationship has deteriorated. He chastised the retiring fighter for never flying the Russian national flag or the flag of Dagestan in the UFC. Khabib Nurmagomedov is a “UFC project,” according to Kadyrov, and the promotion can turn anyone into a champion.
“The UFC and Bellator have their own stars. Look at these stars. How many fights have they fought? At what time? How many fights have they refused? Projects are not meant to fail. They can agree and make set fights. The Khabib Project? Same. He’s a good athlete, but it’s a UFC project. It is one hundred percent a project. He has a good relationship with Dana White and has had good fights.””However, if someone does not go into battle, they are removed from the rankings, and Khabib has never been removed from the rankings. He knows himself that he is a UFC creation. If this is not the case, why have I never seen our brother Khabib perform with the flag of Russia or the flag of Dagestan? He knows what he is doing. He became a champion, avoided mistakes. The fact is, it’s a UFC creature. I think he will agree with that himself.””And to those athletes who had the belt and left undefeated, we wish good luck. I know Khabib is a UFC project and I can talk about it extensively. Of course, in this organization, he would tear everyone apart, but the question was, would he tear everyone to Akhmat? I’m willing to pay any money to Khabib to come out in the ACA and see if he tears anyone down. I’m willing to pay him more than in the UFC if he plays in the ACA against our fighter. Let’s see who wins.”
