Khamzat Chimaev vs Nate Diaz – overview

UFC 279 Chimaev vs Diaz – Unbeaten welterweight sensation Khamzat Chimaev returns on September 10 to compete in the five-round UFC 279 main event at T-Mobile Arena against veteran superstar Nate Diaz, fresh off a thrilling victory over top contender Gilbert Burns.

This will be Chimaev’s first Las Vegas appearance in almost two years. Chimaev has won all 11 of his professional fights, including five in the UFC. He has also earned post-fight performance bonuses in each of his appearances in the Octagon, but it was his Fight of the Night victory over Burns in April that showed he was ready to compete at the highest level at 170 pounds.

He will be put to the test once more in September by Stockton’s Diaz, a UFC fighter who has competed against and defeated a who’s who of the sport since joining the roster in 2007.

Khamzat Chimaev Q&A

Chimaev Khamzat @copyright UFC

Thoughts on opponent, Nate Diaz?
When and why did you start training for fighting? I am a competitive person and have competed my whole life. When I was younger it was wrestling, and when I moved to Sweden, I kept wrestling. After a few national championships I won a gift card at a hotel in Stockholm. I came during a weekend and went to Allstars and tried MMA. I felt that this was something for me and when I went back to Kalmar, I decided to quit my job and move to Stockholm.

What ranks and titles have you held?
Swedish National champion in freestyle wrestling, purple belt in BJJ

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC?
It means that all the hard work and sacrifices that have been made are worth it now when I belong to the best fighting organization in the world. Finally, I can show to the world what I am capable of.

Did you go to college and if so what degree did you earn?
No

What was your job before you started fighting?
I worked in a small poultry factory in the small town of Kalmar and did some security work in Stockholm when I started fighting.

Specific accomplishments in amateur competition?
I went undefeated (4-0) as an amateur in MMA with all finishes. Favorite grappling technique: No favorite. As long as the opponent taps, it’s the favorite.

When and why did you start training for fighting?
I started training when I was younger just because I didn’t have much else to do, and that’s what my brother (Nick Diaz) did.

I put on the gloves and sparred with him, and before I knew it I was getting a fight of my own.

What ranks and titles have you held?
Black belt in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, The Ultimate Fighter 5 winner

Do you have any heroes?
Nick Diaz, Cesar Gracie, the entire Gracie family, and all my training partners on the Cesar Gracie Fight Team

What is your favorite technique?
None

What does it mean for you to fight in the UFC?
I think it’s cool. It’s been a dream of mine for a long time to fight in a big show.

No

What was your job before you started fighting?
High school student
