Borz made it clear that he already has an opponent, more interesting than Costa.
“You were left in the cold – I already have a better opponent,” Chimaev wrote on the social network, turning to Kostya.
The day before came the news about the cancellation of the fight between Costa and Aliskerov, which was supposed to take place on July 29 at UFC 291 in Salt Lake City. At the same time, some sources reported that the Brazilian signed a contract for the fight with Chimaev, and Costa indirectly confirmed this information.
Khamzat Chimaev is set to fight his next fight on October 21 at UFC 294 in Abu Dhabi, and in addition to Costa, his opponents were expected to be ex-UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman, as well as former UFC middleweight title contender Jared Cannonier.
