“All these fake rumors about @KChimaev pulling out due to food poisoning is absolutely bullsh**. I was part of the camp and behind the scenes. As a brother I won’t share his dark times but trust me when I say, he was very sick and hospitalized. The guy’s a beast and to see him so bad wasn’t a good time for us all. Praying for his recovery and comeback.” Tam Khan said.

InshaAllah he’ll be back but for now, rest and recovery is needed.”The truth remains elusive, but one thing is clear: Khamzat Chimaev’s health struggles continue to impact his promising career.
