Fans react to footage of Khamzat Chimaev and Darren Till fighting

MMA fans have reacted hilariously to a video of Darren Till and Khamzat Chimaev fighting that was shared on Instagram.

Many of the running jokes were directed at ‘The Gorilla’ due to his recent performances in the Octagon and injury misfortune. Liverpool have struggled in the cage of late and are 1-4 in their last five appearances. Till has been forced to pull out of 3 of his last 4 fights, most recently missing UFC Fight Night London in July due to his injuries.

“And security can’t do shit”

Fans have reacted to the video, with one fan joking that during the mock fight, Darren Till was injured again:

“BREAKING: Darren injured after altercation with Khamzat. He will be out for 8 months…”

One of the fans comments on the video

Another fan joked that “The Gorilla” deleted “Borz” after the video, referring to themselves as the viral phenomenon of 2015 in the blue and gold changing outfit:

“Darren put him to sleep after that, I know I’m that blue and gold shirt”

A user joking that Till got a KO

Instagram user @_lonlon_ hoped Till and Chimaev’s antics would get them their own reality show:

“These guys need a reality show now”

John McCarthy believes a Khamzat Chimaev win over Nate Diaz will guarantee him a title shot

Khamzat Chimaev will headline his first UFC event when he takes on Nate Diaz at UFC 279 next month. Many fans have proposed the Swede born in Chechnya to be a future champion. He could have a chance to make that happen if he defeats the Stockton-born fighter.

UFC President Dana White recently stated that “Borz” will likely fight for the title and face the winner of the Kamaru Usman/Leon Edwards rematch if he wins against Diaz.

The “Great” John McCarthy agreed with White’s statement, believing there would be little doubt about Chimaev’s claim to a title challenge:

“Simply put, I think Dana is telling the truth. If Mr. Chimaev gets a win against Nathan Diaz, he’ll get his next title shot. [against] who comes out on top with Leon Edwards and Kamaru Usman. However, if Nate Diaz gets a win against Mr. Chimaev, I don’t think you’re going to see title shots being handed out, I don’t think there’s any such thing, because let’s be honest, he’s not going to have a contract, he can go do whatever boxing he wants.”
