On Saturday, welterweight champion Kamaru Usman will clash with contender Leon Edwards in the main event of UFC 278. No. 3 ranked welterweight, and rising superstar, Khamzat Chimaev will keep a close eye on the title fight.

“I’m actually like 60/40 for Usman,” Chimaev said in a recent interview with The Mac Life. “From that time they meet the last time they are both completely different. Kamaru’s getting much better boxing, and Leon’s getting better wrestling. It’s interesting fight for me as well, to watch that fight.”

Khamzat wants to face Usman next, but at the same time he has his eyes on former title contender Jorge Masvidal.

“We will see, if Kamaru wins the fight I think he is going to take a long time to come back, and maybe going to retire. I think the guy is scared of me. He always talk about ‘maybe I finish, maybe I finish’. I hope his is going to win the fight and I fight with him. But if he stays a long time away, Jorge starts to talk too much. I might have to smash his face as well,” Chimaev said.

Khamzat Chimaev is not sure if he is willing to wait for a welterweight title fight against Usman or if he’s going up to middleweight instead.

“I actually told my manager, let me fight at 84 (185 lbs) as well, but he said let’s wait and focus at 170. Take the belt and then go up. We will see. I’m ready for everyone. When I said I can fight with Brock Lesnar it’s real. I can fight with him. If they give me 1 000 000 dollar, no problem.”
