What Did Others Say?
Many MMA stars had things to say about Chimaev, including Kevin Holland:
“I feel like he likes the f***ing media,” Holland said when asked about Chimaev. “I feel like he only does this extra wannabe street s*** when the media is around. Other than that, he doesn’t do it. When you guys [in the media] aren’t around, he wants to do fist bumps and he wants to be your best friend.
“When you guys are around, then all of a sudden he’s like, ‘Roar! I’ll rip your f***ing head off.’ You ain’t ripping s*** off, dog. Let’s be real. You want a paycheck just like the rest of these guys around here.”

“I have to go and take his head off,” Chimaev said. “I came here and don’t take the points. I came here to smash somebody and take his head.”
