It was a bitter chill for Khamzat Chimaev as he fought in Boot Camp at minus 10 degrees Celsius and struggled to find an opponent brave enough to stand against him.
Invincible star unleashes his UFC welterweight championship attack with a persistent workout regimen in the Swedish wilderness.
And the titular hero’s fierce dedication doesn’t show why The opponents froze him.
Even UFC boss Dana White sympathizes with 170lb competitors staying away from Chimaev.
“He’s a killer, he’s an absolute barbarian and I don’t blame anyone for not wanting to fight Khamzat Chimaev.”
Chimaev posted an Instagram video of him running and closing the ball in the snowy woods with Russian coach and trainer Reza Madadi.
It’s no surprise that the duo don full winter wear despite their grueling antics at and around the Allstars Training Center.
Madadi is seen saying: “It’s very cold – Russia is cold.
“Brother, nothing can stop us. We have a goal. And you need to work for it.”

According to Madadi, the duo was set to run three kilometers FIVE TIMES, with stops between workouts.
Chimaev is hungry to build on his 4-0 record.
After appearing in the Fight Island arena two years ago, he broke into the top 15 in the welterweight division with a shutdown win over persistent Chinese striker Li Jingliang.
American superstar Nate Diaz, 36, was among those who changed the No11 Chimaev throne.
And White is sure it’s because the Californian wants to stay safe rather than Diaz’s claim he doesn’t want to face such a ‘rookie.
