The UFC fighters were always bound to meet in person sometime, but training together? That’s one we didn’t see coming.
Till has been out of action since his disappointing loss to Derek Brunson last September. After his defeat, everyone under the MMA sun told him to go seek a camp with wrestling. Maybe AKA in San Jose, perhaps Elevation Fight team in Colorado, or go to Dagestan. Well, he chose to go to the All Stars Facility in Sweden, where Chimaev and two-time light heavyweight title challenger Alexander Gustafsson calls home.
TheMacLife posted a video of Chimaev and Till working out and lifting weights. During the video, the undefeated fighter told Till, “let’s go, fat boy” to which the English fighter laughed.
INFT company @blockasset also posted some footage of Till getting some work with Chimaev and Gustafsson.
This is exactly what Till needs in his career right now, and hopefully, he will rebound from his recent skid.
Chimaev, on the other hand is preparing for his fight with Gilbert Burns, which is expected to take place at UFC 273, but nothing is official.
