That’s UFC rising star Khamzat Chimaev firing back at Conor McGregor — after the Irishman insulted him on social media.
Here’s they backstory …
The 26-year-old Chechen-born fighter is 8-0 and has dominated in his first 2 fights in the UFC — mauling prodigy Rhys McKee on Fight Island this past weekend just 10 days after dominating John Phillips.
And get this … Khamzat was only hit a total of TWO TIMES in both fights — while dishing out 192 strikes of his own!!!
In fact, Khazmat’s smothering violent style has earned him the nickname “Khabib 2.0” — and just like Khabib, he’s already in a real-life feud with Conor.
After Khazmat’s victory over the weekend, Conor called him “rat lip” in a now-deleted Tweet — but McGregor didn’t pull it down quick enough!
Now, Khamzat says he would kill for a chance to shut Conor’s mouth in the Octagon … and he’s begging Dana White for the opportunity.
“I can go smash [Conor McGregor]! If [UFC] give me, I would be so happy about that. It’s easy fight for me.”
“I don’t see somebody can stop me. I gonna finish everybody. I gonna finish [Conor] first round. I promise you, I can finish him in 1st round.”
