Fast rising UFC star Khamzat Chimaev has challenged the Paul brothers by saying he would "smash" both of them on the same night — this and much more on Tuesday's social media roundup.
Khamzat Chimaev claims he would "smash" the Pauls
After Khamzat Chimaev dominantly submitted Li Jingliang and made his way into the top 10 of the UFC welterweight rankings, it seemed like he would be super focused on progressing and getting more wins in the UFC.
That has quickly changed as Chimaev has just taken to social media to claim that he would "smash" both of the Paul brothers on the same night in a boxing match.
See what Chimaev posted to Twitter below.

Of course nobody doubts that Chimaev could do that, but the fights against the Pauls probably has a 0% chance of happening as Chimaev is contracted to the UFC and his boss Dana White probably wouldn't let him fight the brothers.
Jake Paul, of course is scheduled to fight Tyson Fury's younger brother Tommy in December, whilst Jake's big brother Logan is rumoured to be facing former heavyweight world champion Mike Tyson soon as well.
If the fight between Chimaev and the Pauls was to materialise, would you be interested?
