Khamzat Chimaev is the talk of the combat sports town after destroying Gerald Meerschaert at the UFC Vegas 11 event last weekend at the APEX in Las Vegas. Partly because “Borz” is outspoken on the mic but mostly because he’s left a trail of limp bodies in his wake.

Meanwhile, UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya is always keeping his eye on contenders coming for his title but he still hasn’t had a chance to take a look at the latest superstar – Khamzat gunning for the gold.

He followed that up with a stunning 17-second, one-punch knockout at UFC Vegas 11 when Chimaev planted Gerald Meerschaert on the mat at UFC Vegas 11.

But it doesn’t sound like “The Last Stylebender” is losing any sleep at night.
