Can Khamzat Chimaev's comeback against Luke Rockhold reignite his career, or is it too late?

Khamzat Chimaev is returning to UFC! This is a pretty surprising rumor because he is just recovering from food poisoning, which stopped him from participating in the UFC fight night against Robert Whittaker. On top of that, he is also tied up in a cryptocurrency fiasco. In all of these shenanigans, there is a new development that he might be returning very soon against Luke Rockhold, in a super wrestling match.

But how much of this news is true? Is he still recovering from food poisoning? Let’s find out.

He has not returned to the octagon for nine months and has gone through a hard time because of his health. Surprisingly, even after so many ailments, he is still back in training and is exercising in full swing. ‘Borz’ had started his UFC career with a full band and achieved three back-to-back bonuses in two months. He had unfortunately failed to make weight for the Nate Diaz fight in 2022 and then things were not going well for the fighter.

However, now it seems like he might be coming back to the octagon sooner than later. On the other hand, his supposed opponent Rockhold has also returned to UFC in Pittsburgh. His last fight was with Michael Bisping 15 months ago. Meanwhile, Chimaev is training in full swing.

He had last fought Kamaru Usman in UFC 294 and was going to get his title shot against Whittaker, which unfortunately did not happen due to the sickness. Fans wrote comments like, “That one exercise just put him in bed for 2 days.” They also wrote, ““Aaand hes sick with a cold again.” The fans are concerned about his health and do not seem excited about his comeback.
