Georges St-Pierre is singing the praises of Khamzat Chimaev.
Chimaev is really a rising force in the UFCs welterweight division. He’s got an ideal pro MMA record of 11-0 and is coming off a gritty victory over Gilbert Burns.
Throughout a UFC Paris Q&A, St-Pierre was asked if he thinks Chimaev is championship material. GSP left without doubt on what he feels about Borz (h/t MMAJunkie).
Yes, Khamzat is great, St-Pierre told fans and media throughout a Q&A on Friday in Paris. Hes got all of the skills. Hes excellent, and he showcased incredible durability and great mental strength in his last fight when he fought Gilbert Burns, because he was pushed to the limit, and thats once you recognize a genuine warrior, a genuine champion when compared to a contender. When he faced those moments of adversity, some collapse, however, many push through and succeed, and he proved it in his last fight. Hes very, excellent.
