The prospect of UFC Khamzat Chimaev’s spike has been described as “really scary” ahead of his return to the cage date.

And former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping has heard that Chimaev is getting the most out of Till in the gym.

Khamzat Chimaev is 4-0 in UFC

“They’re filming. Blockasset is a company I’m associated with and they’re calling me up and saying, ‘Oh my god! Khamzat is the real thing!’

“His good performance, training like a ***** mom, lifting weights, pushing everyone in the room. Great stand up, great wrestling.”

11th place in the first division Chimaev could break through the top 10 of the tournament for the title with a win over Burns.

‘Borz’ has switched between middle and heavyweight during his four wins in the UFC and has named champions in both divisions.

But Bisping thinks Chimaev should focus on beating 170-pound Kamaru Usman first before thinking about returning to the weight division.

“Obviously Gilbert Burns isn’t walking in the park, but that fight isn’t even official yet, but he still has to beat Usman before even thinking about rising to 185. [pounds]”, Bisping said.

Chimaev named middleweight champion Israel Adesanya after he defended his title at UFC 271 by knocking out Robert Whittaker in their rematch.

Adesanya declined to answer during his post-match press conference prompting some fans to accuse him of straining to take on Chimaev, which Bisping denied.

“I don’t think Israel is worried, there’s no reason when Khamzat isn’t in the room that Israel should be worried when someone says ‘oh Khamzat just tweeted that,'” he added.

Chimaev is underrated in middleweight and will likely need to be some of the top contenders before securing a spot in Adesanya, who will likely defend his belt against the next Jared Cannonier.
