Neil Magny recently decided to volunteer himself to face Khamzat Chimaev — the man no one seems to want to fight — on Dec. 19, 2020, in Las Vegas, Nevada. And “Borz” is ready to go, responding to Magny via social media.

Check it out:

Indeed, Chimaev has been trying to lock down another fight after making quick work of Gerald Meerschaert a few weeks ago with one punch (see it again here). But, according to “The Wolf,” everyone from Welterweight striker Stephen Thompson to former Middleweight champion, Chris Weidman, doesn’t seem to want a piece of him.

According to 170-pound contender Michael Chiesa, though, it’s not out of fear but has more to do with it not being smart business since Chimaev is still isn’t even ranked in the Top 15 (in any weight class).

But,Magny doesn’t seem to care as he is looking to cash in on the opportunity to derail Chimaev’s hype train with a win. Both men want it, all that is left to do is get UFC matchmakers on board.
