Recently, Khamzat Chimaev and Darren Till shared some hilarious moments on Instagram Live together. The pair seemed to enjoy talking to each other, and mutual respect between the fighters was quite clear. The UFC has seen many great rivalries over the years, therefore it was quite refreshing to see two fighters being so friendly with each other.

Till continued, “You have to beat Magny. Magny is coming for you.”

To which Chimaev replied, “Magny is bullsh*t brother, he’s too small for me. Easy fight, easy money, brother. He said he gonna slap me. I’m gonna show how Chechen slaps.”

After saying this, Chimaev hilariously took out a knife, leaving Till surprised and amused. ‘The Gorilla’ quickly responded with, ‘No, no knife, not good, not good.’

The conversation eventually led to the two fighters discussing a potential fight with each other.

“Say it to me where you want. I will fight, brother. We’ll fight. Bullsh*t guys talk too much but we’ll have to show real fight, brother,” Chimaev said.

“Oh yeah, I’ll fight you. Of course, you know I will. But you know I beat you, right? You know I beat you easy. You know this. You know this,” Till replied.
