Khamzat Chimaev is the talk of the town following his dominant win at UFC 267. Ever since then, combat sports fans are wondering what’s next for Chimaev. Interestingly, the latter is ready to take on any fighter and has also shared a few names, including Nate Diaz and Jorge Masvidal, in a post-fight interview.

However, the Stockton slugger seems disinterested in facing the Swedish fighter. The UFC president shared in an interview that he was interested in Diaz vs Chimaev and claimed to have talked to Diaz about the fight.
