Be impressed as Khamzat Chimaev destroys heavy bag made of duct tape and Sunday comics (Video)

Next time splurge for Sticky Ass Tape.

UFC welterweight flavor of the month Khamzat Chimaev is gearing up to fight longtime 170-pound contender Leon Edwards in the promotion’s upcoming “Fight Night” main event on March 13, presumably in Las Vegas or Abu Dhabi.

I’m not sure what to make of this new video, which features Chimaev rag-dolling a (cough) “heavy bag” but judging by the YouTube comments, I appear to be the only one questioning the craftsmanship of his equipment.

I guess this is why so many fighters prefer to train at the UFC Performance Center.

Chimaev (9-0) has been the talk of the MMA town ever since his Octagon debut back in summer 2020. “Borz” racked up three straight wins — and three straight finishes — within a span of two months.

Sure, none of his past opponents hold winning records under the UFC banner, but who cares about stats when you have HYPE!
