Khamzat Chimayev: "Now I won't be hungry!"
Undefeated UFC fighter Khamzat Chimaev (12-0) explained why he decided to move to the middleweight category (83.9 kg).
"This is a different unit, a different force. Now I eat completely differently. I'm not hungry anymore. I used to eat only rice when I tried half the average weight (77.1 kg): rice with chicken, rice with fish, you can go crazy. Now I train more, more than, get more energy. Well, it's all amazing... Of course, I still need to lose weight, but not like before. Over the next 25 days, I gradually reduce the amount of food consumed. Now everything will be different," Chimayev said.
Recall that Chimaev will face Brazilian Paulo Costa (14-2) at the UFC 294 tournament in Abu Dhabi, UAE, on Obector 21.
