    UFC standout Khamzat Chimaev was involved in an altercation with security at a recent MMA event in Sweden.

    Chimaev (10-0 MMA), who recently agreed to an April 9th showdown with former UFC welterweight title challenger Gilbert Burns (see more on that here), was in attendance at a local MMA event in his native Sweden this past weekend.

    According to a report from Essentially Sports, Khamzat Chiamev was sitting front row to cheer on one his teammates. When the fight was called off by the referee, โ€˜Borzโ€™ jumped the rail and made his way toward the cage to protest the stoppage.

    Security quickly intervened and as seen below a small scuffle ensued.

    Thankfully nothing serious resulted from the incident and cooler heads ultimately prevailed.

    Khamzat Chimaev (10-0 MMA) last competed at Octoberโ€™s UFC 267 event, where he needed less than a round to dispose of ranked welterweight Li Jingliang. That contest was โ€˜Borzโ€™ first since September of 2020, where he had scored a sensational 18-second knockout win over Gerald Meerschaert (see that here).

    If Chimaev does end up fighting Gilbert Burns on April 9, there is a good chance that a win over โ€˜Durinhoโ€™ could result in a future title shot against reigning welterweight champion Kamaru Usman.

    That same notion could be applied to Burns, who would be in prime position for a rematch with โ€˜The Nigerian Nightmareโ€™ should he defeat โ€˜Borzโ€™ this Spring.
