This time the fighter targeted both Nick Diaz and Nate Diaz in his latest Twitter post. He wrote, “say hello to your brother, tell him not to be afraid of me, I don’t beat old people, he knows what I mean, in Vegas I just wanted to say hello well, poor man ran away”.

Many Diaz fans on the platform did not like Chimaev’s tweets and were of the opinion that the younger fighter was disrespecting both the Diaz brothers. The Diaz’s have a loyal fanbase as they have been in the business for a long time.

In his previous tweets too, he took a dig at Nate Diaz. He said a fight against Nate Diaz would be easy money for him and also called him a “fake gangster”.

Dana White hopes to find an opponent for Chimaev soon. So it would be interesting to see which fighter accepts this bout. As Chimaev is excited to fight, he will most likely accept any fight as long as it is against a great fighter.

Seeing him fight against the top-ranked fighters would give a better judgment of the skills he possesses.
