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’ve been stuck in the cage for a long time and I’ve got to do what I’ve got to do to get the f*** out,” Diaz said when asked his thoughts on Chimaev. “Whether it’s fighting the toughest guy or the newest guy or whatever you want to make of him or call him, I’m just ready to rock and roll.”

Khamzat Chimaev is one of the best in the world and confident in what he can do in the fight.

“All moments in the UFC are big moments for me, you know?” Chimaev said. “It feels amazing. I’m fighting Nate Diaz, one of the guys whose been 15 years in this game, one of the legends. Maybe it’s his last fight, who knows, but I’m happy.”

“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.”
