The latest example being his scuffle with security guards back in his home country, Sweden. Apparently, ‘Borz’ was attending an MMA event where one of his teammates was also scheduled to fight.

Meanwhile, as the bout progressed, Chimaev was uncertain of the result and soon enough the opponent stopped his teammate. However, the 27-year-old believed that this call was an early stoppage and unfair.

Subsequently, Chimaev rushed towards the octagon and in turn got into a scuffle with the security guards at the event. Later, we could see ‘Borz’ being directed back towards the audience section by the security guards. While his friends came in to support him and talk to the guards for a change.

Chiefly, Chimaev is a dedicated teammate and friend. The Swede doesn’t shy away from helping his friends and assisting his teammates in professional matters. Some of his most notable teammates are heavyweight Ilir Latifi and former light heavyweight title challenger Alexander Gustafsson.

Although it should be crystal clear that Khamzat Chimaev (10-0) is a dedicated athlete, as his performances speak for themselves. It wouldn’t hurt to get a shout-out from one of the most hard-hitting UFC fighters ever. As UFC’s ‘Mauler’ has just put his stamp of approval on Chimaev’s work ethics.

Speaking to Brett Okamoto of ESPN, the former title challenger claimed that ‘Borz’ is the hardest working prospect he has witnessed as he out trains everyone.

“Because I met a lot of MMA athletes and fighters and all of that and he stands out, for sure. Because of his dedication, because he out trains everybody. It’s nobody who trains like him, nobody. I haven’t seen it. I’ve been around the world seeing fighters train and having their camps and training for fights. This guy, he doesn’t get tired. He doesn’t feel any pain, just go through it,” Gustafsson claimed.
