Khamzat Chimaev has incredible regard for Alexander Gustafsson.
Speaking to Ariel Helwani on The MIXED MARTIAL ARTS Hour, Chimaev reviewed a lot of subjects. When asked just how he really felt seeing Gustafsson fail yet once again, Chimaev responded:
“Feels bad. Really bad like that guy is so nice guy. He helped us a lot. I become the fighter I am. Maybe if not Alex being and living in Sweden… maybe I didn’t start MMA. Maybe I didn’t show up in the UFC. The guys now, all the guys from Sweden who fight have to thank Alex because of him we on the top. We fight on the different UFCs.”
Khamzat Chimaev proceeded:
“We are like from Sweden, five or six guys in the UFC. Before Alex there was almost nobody there. When he fought Jon Jones, everyone started training MMA. For us, he has always been the champion. He didn’t get the belt but he’s the champ for us.”
