Khamzat Chimaev is ready to compete again, and UFC president Dana White is seemingly ready to make it happen.
Chimaev went 2-0 in the UFC following another dominant win this time in the welterweight division against Rhys McKee at UFC Fight Island 3 last night.
Like his debut against John Phillips earlier this month, Chimaev completely outclassed McKee and even took zero strikes as he went on to earn the first-round TKO win.
Chimaev To Compete At UFC 252?
And after two fights in 10 days, the 26-year-old wants to stay active and compete at the upcoming UFC 252 pay-per-view card taking place August 15 in Las Vegas. And White has claimed he will make it happen.
“Just spoke to @danawhite and he said @KChimaev “is special” and wants to fight again on Aug. 15 at #UFC252. He said he’ll make that happen.”

That would mean Chimaev would be competing three times in the space of a month which would be unprecedented in these modern times. That said, no other fighter has taken two strikes in their first two UFC fights either.
That's two fights in 10 days outstriking his opponents…

One thing is for sure — if Chimaev keeps this up, he will continue to gain more and more fans and fast-track himself to a title shot soon.
