midnight Mania! Muscle spasms and vomiting canceled Khamzat’s UFC 279 weight reduce - MMA Mania

Welcome to dead night Mania!

It's no secret that Khamzat Chimaev cuts a good bit of weight to make the Welterweight limit. video clips have prior to now been posted of the Chechen athlete suffering to shed the kilos, and it's very visually obtrusive that he's large for one hundred seventy lbs. while technique is certainly a part of the equation, Chimaev's measurement and strength certainly haven't been hurting his capacity to overpower and dominate the competitors.

Chimaev may additionally have picked up yet another flawless victory in his first-circular submission win over Kevin Holland (HIGHLIGHTS) at UFC 279, however the question is still: what went so terribly wrong in this weight cut? again and again, Chimaev and the advertising have offered up the narrative that "Borz" might have made the burden if handiest a physician had no longer interfered and stopped him from carrying on with. Chimaev reiterated as a great deal within the submit-battle interview, promising that he might've made the Welterweight limit devoid of difficulty if allowed to are attempting.

On The MMA Hour, Chimaev's teach Andreas Michael tells a distinct story. He offers up no such excuses, explaining that a heavy start to Chimaev's camp and timing considerations helped doom "Borz" long before battle week.

"We all started this camp heavy," Michael explained (by means of MMA combating). "That's what the difficulty changed into as well. We obtained a proposal to combat Nate Diaz, and it changed into earlier than this in August. It was too soon because he become heavy. Then they moved it 10 days up, and that i agree with we simply all started too heavy this camp. We should have had a bit more self-discipline and held our weight to an affordable stage, to an inexpensive weight close to the one which he's training at and going into camp. That's truly about it.

"we will find a lot of explanations and excuses and all this. at the conclusion of the day — I'm now not slagging off Khamzat, he's a powerful fighter and i love him to demise — but what I'm saying is that it became fully unprofessional from our side not to make weight. any person who doesn't make weight is unprofessional, completely. I are looking to [apologize] to Nate's camp for that. We may still have both made weight, and there are not any excuses."

ultimately, Michael elaborated on the tough condition that Chimaev became in the nighttime before the Friday weigh-ins. Chimaev wasn't suffering mere cramps; his symptoms have been much more concerning.

"He became getting muscle spasms, shaking," Michael pointed out. "Vomiting. When he stood up he changed into passing out. i used to be worried about him."

later on, Michael brought within the health practitioner, spoke him him, after which decided it become time to name off the load reduce. while lacking weight may now not be superb for Chimaev's popularity or status as a Welterweight contender, it's far better than one of the vital alternate options that can include pushing a weight cut too far, like kidney considerations or even dying.

Chimaev has a whole lot of potential to be champion at 185 lbs., so in all probability it's top-rated if he competes at Middleweight moving forward.


RIP Elias Theodorou.

I'm not attempting to claim Tony Ferguson vs. Nate Diaz became the top of the line combat of all time, however I dug it, and it turned into cool to see these two set aside their typically adverse natures.

also, I'll answer this: Diaz's leg harm, so he desired a spoil, and Tony gave him one (he shouldn't have).

Hasbulla isn't combating, however he still secured the bag in the form of a 5-yr contract assisting promote UFC.
