Video: Daniel Cormier Wrestles Khamzat Chimaev: "He's A F--king Strong Guy"

Khamzat Chimaev might need to put on a few more pounds if he wants to sneak in another fight in 2020.

Former two-division UFC champion Daniel Cormier tested Chimaev's wrestling skills outside the hotel lobby on UFC Fight Island 6 weekend. ESPN MMA posted a 41-second video of the playful exchange. D.C. attempts to give Chimaev some tips during the brief exchange; however, Chimaev appears preoccupied with the challenge at hand.

"He's a fucking strong guy, huh?" Cormier proclaims as Chimaev attempts to lift up the former heavyweight champ with an over-under.

Chimaev (9-0) has quickly become one of the UFC's most excited prospects after finishing his first three UFC opponents in a combined nine minutes and 38 seconds — across two weight classes no less. He has landed a combined 87 strikes and only absorbed one strike in his first three promotional fights.
