    I love how there's no fake character whatsoever with Khamzat. He's just simple and to the point. He genuinely loves fighting and and wants to slay everyone he can get his hands on.

    Nick Diaz has nothing to prove. He is a legend. I personally do not want to see him fight anymore. There is no point. Only $. And that may or may not be his primary motivation. At any rate, all that weed cannot be good for your cardiovascular performance. I love ND but his time in the octagon is another life.

    I love this kid I don't blame Nick, Chimaev is an animal in his prime right now. Nick definitely needs a couple tune ups before he jumps into the deep end of the pool he hasn't faught in years. Give him Conor Mcgregor to smash on first then Masvidal then Chimaev. Right now I think Chimaev will run right threw Usman and Colby give Khamzat his title shot.

    It feels like his attitude matured a lot after the Covid-19 recovery. Before he was again funny/aggressive, but got to an annoying level sometimes to hurt his own image. Now, he obviously needs the publicity and the money, so he will say he is ready. But one cannot help but feel excited to see how hel'll do against the big dogs of UFC regardless of his condition.
