LAS VEGAS – UFC 279 continues to be a couple of days away, however Jake Shields already acquired a dose of Khamzat Chimaev.

the former Strikeforce champion and teammate of Nate Diaz mentioned he changed into a part of a run-in with Chimaev on Monnday whereas he become helping UFC middleweight Paulo Costa work on his grappling. Shields informed MMA Junkie Radio that Chimaev interrupted the grappling session between him and Costa on the UFC performance Institute in Las Vegas, which he wasn't satisfied about.

"i used to be there this morning understanding with Paulo Costa, going over some ideas and simply drilling, and abruptly Khamzat starts yelling at us and cussing Paulo like, 'well, you wish to battle?'" Shields spoke of. "We appear over, and it's him and like 10 dudes.

"So Paulo jumps up and starts speakme sh*t. I run over to lower back up Paulo as a result of I don't be aware of in the event that they're making an attempt to bounce him, right? there have been a few guys, so I wasn't sure if they were going to start him. there were a couple of guys that we didn't appreciate.

"So we run over and begin talking sh*t and Khamzat keeps going, 'Let's fight now, let's fight now,' however as he's asserting that he's walking down the steps. It appeared like it turned into sort of more of an act for the cameras than anything. I wager a person stated in a while that he was scoping us out for 10 minutes. If he desired to fight Paulo, he would've run in there and started swinging on him, no longer stood backyard the cage and say, 'Let's fight at this time. Let's combat at this time.'

"It appeared kind of a susceptible factor. I guess that's why he was upset as a result of Paulo known as him a pretend gangster, and that changed into an ideal illustration of him being a faux gangster."

Shields has been a teammate of Diaz for many years and has been in Diaz's nook for one of the largest fights of his career. Saturday, Chimaev takes on Diaz within the UFC 279 leading adventure at T-mobile area in Las Vegas.
