Khamzat Chimaev and Darren Till have a funny movement during their training sessions.

Earlier, the British fighter and the Swedish star had a few altercations on social media. However, they have sorted things out now. And recently, the British middleweight fighter went to Sweden to train with the surging welterweight star at All-star gym.

‘The Gorilla’ has only won one fight since 2018. He is currently on a two-fight skid. However, honing his skills with the undefeated fighter might have a change in his performance in the future.

In the video, both the UFC fighters can be seen lifting heavyweights in a very intense training session. During the workout, Chimaev jokes about lifting more weight than the Brit. However, the Russian-born also lauded ‘The Gorilla’ for his dedication and hard work.

Chimaev said, “I don’t know, smash bro. Nah, bro, I lift more than you, man. Darren was good, actually. Good, very good. He did good. Physically he come yesterday.”
