“Nick needs to combat,” White stated on the UFC 261 post-fight press convention. “We’ll see how this goes. He’s ready for me within the again proper now. I’m going to go discuss to him.”

“I wish to combat with him,” Chimaev stated in an interview with MMA Junkie. “That will likely be good. I watched his combat after I was a child, now I’m going to combat with him. Excellent for me. I prefer it. I wish to see who’s the true gangster. I feel he’s an actual gangster on this sport, however we’ll see.”
