The rival of Chimaev, sponsored by the tournament, is dissatisfied with the role of a victim prepared for him before the fight between the Chechen and Demian Maia. Thus, Gerald Meerschaert resents the UFC and Khamzat Chimaev.
Experience or Youth?
The coronavirus has made adjustments to the rules of the game. Besides, Abu Dhabi, which is supposed to be the new Mecca of mixed martial arts, requires its heroes.
The lead entertainer of the Arab sheikhs remains the UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. However, Khamzat Chimayev, a Chechen from Sweden, who was thoroughly taken up by the American promotion, could catch up with him soon.
In July, the 26-year-old prospect had two appearances in the octagon, dealing with a pair of passing opponents, and is already preparing to return. The UFC, in turn, has planned a chain of two appearances for him.
If Chimaev copes with Gerald Meerschaert on September 19, who lost four of the last six fights, then in October, he will deal with pensioners on Fight Island. The UFC intends to make the Chechen a top and to give Khamzat the oldest fighter of the division, Demian Maia, who is old enough to be his father.
“It Is Disrespectful for Chimaev to Agree to This“
The position of the one who is deliberately supposed to lose, and the fact that he is not considered a favorite, naturally could not please Meerschaert.
“I repeat this every time I am asked, – he told The Bash MMA today, – I find it disrespectful. And I consider it disrespectful for Chimaev to agree to this, saying: “Okay, just arrange it for me, I’ll win, I won’t have to do a lot of weight lifting, and then I’ll go to fight with another guy.” Obviously, Gerald Meerschaert resents the UFC and Khamzat Chimaev. Let us see if he can succeed
