Magny went on Twitter recently (which was captured by MMA Mania) and complained about the state of the UFC, saying the following:
“Ranked fighters won’t fight other ranked fighters, unranked fighters only want to fight fighters ranked in the top 5. crazy times at the @UFC”
Chimaev would respond to Magny on Twitter, challenging him to a fight on December 19:
“I am here my friend. I am also tired of all the bullshit from the internet fighters. Let’s do this on dec 19. No more excuses lets rock n’ roll baby.”
Thus far, no response has been issued by Magny, while Chimaev seems ready to fight just about anybody on the UFC roster.
