"I don't even know the guy, I haven't seen his fights yet," the UFC middleweight champion told Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports.

"I saw the presser and he was just talking s**t. He was just casting his net. Have you seen him fight? Rat lip? Meh."

He added: "Tim [Simpson, Adesanya's manager] said he fought low level competition. So he thinks I'm an easy fight... that's interesting. I mean, everyone does this when they're coming up, casting the net wide. Yeah, keep casting."

Chimaev has since hit back at Adesanya by telling him that his insults will cost him his UFC title.

On Twitter, he wrote: "What do you said about me it will cost you your belt if you're still the champion Good luck."

Chimaev fought last weekend when he destroyed Gerald Meerschaert in 17-seconds at UFC Fight Night.

He was expected to return to action on 'Fight Island' but White has confirmed that the 26-year-old will headline a card in Las Vegas.

'Borz' took to social media to update fans on his next bout.
