It seems to be a dig at Chimaev’s activeness, as the Swedish fighter vows to take fights on almost every weekend. But Meerschaert is a true veteran of the sport, and his experience can bring several new challenges.

Gerald Meerschaert is dismantling Khamzat Chimaev on social media

Three days prior to their middleweight fight, Meerschaert has turned to social media and has lashed at his rival. Well, it is not a heated altercation. Instead, ‘GM3’ has used a hilarious picture to alarm his opponent.

Posting a picture of WWE’s Bone Yard contest between AJ Styles and The Undertaker, Meerschaert hinted that he won’t let Chimaev compete in October. Thus, he claims to hurt his rival badly. Despite that, it can be an absolute opposite scenario for the ‘GM3’.

Khamzat Chimaev has competed in the middleweight and the welterweight division in the promotion. After winning a sensational debut against John Phillips via submission in a middleweight contest, he dropped down to the welterweight after 10 days.

It is no surprise that he won the fight at 170 lb too against Rhys McKee and is set to return at 185 lb on September 19. This will be Khamzat’s first fight against a true veteran of the sport.

Despite boasting double-digit losses, Meerschaert is still one of the looming middleweights on the roster. Holding a pro record of 31 wins and 12 losses, he knows how to get back from a loss. Thus, a win against Chimaev will seemingly bring him back to relevancy, and Meerschaert vows to attain that.
