Swedish mixed martial artist (MMA) Khamzat Chimaev hinted at a change in weight class. He posted on Twitter.

Chimaev showed a photo from the octagon, which was signed by “185”. This could mean 185 pounds (84 kilograms), which is the upper limit of the middleweight class.

Earlier, the head of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Dana White, said he wants Chimaev to move to middleweight. “No more catchweight fights,” he stressed.

Initially, on September 11, Chimaev was supposed to fight American Nate Diaz in the main fight of the UFC 279 tournament. However, the Swede failed the weigh-in and was replaced by Tony Ferguson. As a result, Chimaev met with Kevin Holland in the second most important fight and won in the third minute of the fight.
