UFC Star Khamzat Chimaev Fires Back At Israel Adesanya For "Rat Lip" Comment
Adesanya poked fun at Chimaev's lip when he was asked about the European phenom, whose scored three big wins in the UFC.
"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."
