    Massive respect to Kamara and Hazmit for managing to pull through this interview.

  2. Braeden Marley says:

    We got a guy who has the best takedowns we’ve ever seen, possibly the goat, smashes people brutally and has never lost a fight and in my opinion never lost a round, interviewing two great Mixed martial artist.

  3. The RE: Brand says:

    Was never an Usman fan but I never missed a fight of his either. A move like this further paves his legacy, you can’t deny it. Well done and good luck to both these guys

  4. Na Mo says:

    Never understood why Usman has so many haters. He did so much for this sport. One of my all time favorites.

    • eddy cristov says:

      He’s a bit corny I think that’s probably the main reason honestly

    • Carlito Brigante says:

      This fight will win over a lot of people hating on him, win or lose

    • DudeWithTheFro says:

      Idk either but I am a hardcore mma fan so I barely dislike any fighters. Usman deserves all the respect for what he has done. He had backed up all his talk and become world champ. He is a savage and I think he now wanna be 185 champ since Izzy is out. Corny sometimes but most of these ufc fighter corny don’t mean we shouldn’t respect and appreciate their elite level skills

    • TEOTEO says:

      it stems from his earlier days in the UFC, where he got a reputation for being boring ( lay and pray for decision wins) while being corny ( you know the 30% meme etc etc).

      But yea after becoming champ and now even more so after losing the title he has carried himself in a way that you really have no other choice than respect him. Dude took his losses like a man and then jumps on this short notice fight.

  5. Jericho says:

    Always had huge respect for how Kamaru carries himself as a champion. Seems like a top guy, and embodies everything a champion should have. Good luck or both men this weekend

  6. C J says:

    Everyone better not act surprised if Usman wins like he isnt proven and accomplished. Dude can 100% pull this off. Anything can happen in this sport.

  7. SaintGTX says:

    As a fan of Chimaev, it’s interesting to see how humble he is before Usman, compared to how he was acting against Costa. Looks like both fighters understand how good their opponent is and respect them for it. This fight is going to be amazing!

    • vantsen nm says:

      he had too, burns fight made to focus little bit more and have that cockiness slowed down, maybe pre fight interview hype ofc thats the game

    • Walter Dingus says:

      I think it’s the other way around

    • Martin 🫡 says:

      It’s his hardest fight to date, people forget how good usman was because of the fight with Leon but you have to understand that he was the number one pound fighter in the world at some point . Maybe moving to middleweight is his best option especially when you consider that Izzy won’t be fighting anytime soon and he is even contemplating calling it a day with his career. Because of how big usman and khamzat are to the ufc, I wouldn’t be surprised if the winner fights for the title next

    • Khalid Al gharib says:

      I think is because he feel respect to take a short notice like that he dont feel it will be good to make trash talk even for promote

    • AGAT3S says:

      Khamzat grateful Usman took the fight

  8. Duane Omes says:

    This sport is so amazing because these guys put it all on the line. One of the last things anyone would advise Usman to do is take a short notice fight against Chimaev after the tough run he has had. Its a tough spot for Chimaev to be in as well. The winner is well deserved of a title shot. LFG!

  9. John Gladman says:

    What’s crazy is so many people have ducked Khamzat and Usman has pursued him. Even with his losses Usman is still a champion and ran through his division before Leon. Usman is in a totally different conversation if he doesn’t lose to Leon and give him that confidence.

  10. LuC1uS says:

    i love the fact that they both show a massive respect with no trash talk
