Khamzat Chimaev will be displaying that “Smesh Everybody” mentality that shot his fame through the UFC roof. On the other hand Nate Diaz has been proving he’s a gangster since Chimaev was a young boy. His history of clutching out upsets makes him one of the most unpredictable fighters in the entirety of the UFC. But many fighters see this fight in a very different light, read more about the reactions and community response to this fight here.
Being a submission and grappling focused fighter Nate Diaz has some answers for Khamzats Swedish wrestling background. If the fight ends up going to the ground and into jiu jitsu we will be seeing a very first from Chimaev who hasn’t had to utilize that skill set yet. Although “Borz” has gotten submission wins, they have never been in contention by his opponents and hence would finish rather immediately. Whereas Nate has displayed his BJJ skills in a much wider capacity.
Chimaev is mostly wrestling focused and hence will have the upperhand in clinches and takedowns against the resilience of Diaz. This may be where Khamzat wins the fight on points. It is unlikely that Diaz will have a response to that. Although Nate has decent takedown defense. It may not be enough to counter the ground and pound wrestling style of a fighter like Khamzat. Khamzat has been developing his top level wrestling from the very young age of 5. He remains undefeated even in his wrestling record of 24-0.
As the much kicks off, the stand-up and striking is also favored towards Khamzats raw strength and knockout power. He has the capacity to switch the lights off of any fighter in the UFC roster. Irrelevant of the weight division. However as the fight progresses and Nate Diaz starts to tire out the stamina of the Young Wolf the fight will start leaning towards his side. The longer the fight goes the more the chance that Diaz gets a surprise victory.
