UFC star Khamzat Chimaev has called to fight fellow welterweight Neil Magny in June — this and much more on Saturday's social media roundup.
Khamzat Chimaev wants to fight Neil Magny in June
Fast-rising UFC star Khamzat Chimaev has said he wants to fight his fellow UFC welterweight contender Neil Magny in June.
Magny sent a tweet to Chimaev nearly a month ago where Magny replied to a tweet from Chimaev which mocked Magny's performance against Michael Chiesa.
Make sure you keep that same energy when you see me in person! I'll give you my word, that I'm slaaping you on sight -- and teaching some respect!— Neil Magny (@NeilMagny) February 2, 2021
As you can see in the tweet, Magny is clearly not happy with Chimaev's comments.
Nearly a month after Magny sent the tweet, Chimaev has finally responded.
Chimaev has been battling ongoing symptoms of COVID-19 since he first tested positive for the virus back in January 2020. Chimaev pulled out of his bout against Leon Edwards twice, the first time where he tested positive for COVID-19 and the second time was due to ongoing complications with his respiratory system.
