Chimaev Reignites Beef with Al Selawe; “Trolls” Rival on Instagram

Khamzat Chimaev still doesn’t have a new date to have the first title shot of his career, against reigning BRAVE CF Welterweight World Champion Jarrah Al Selawe, but that doesn’t mean that the Swedish undefeated prospect will let the beef against the Jordanian Lion fade away.

On his official Instagram profile, Khamzat published a small video montage of him and Jarrah, “trolling” the champion. In the video, Jarrah is a small kid being pushed by his dad on a toy car while another infant comes by driving by himself a much better car miniature. This other person is Khamzat Chimaev, who drives away with a real “thug life” attitude.

The humor post was captioned by Chimaev provoking Al Selawe. “See you soon, boy”, wrote the Allstars Training Center athlete. Quickly, the publication got traction in social media, gathering laughs from Chimaev supporters and complaints by Jarrah’s fans.

With a professional record of six wins and no losses, Khamzat Chimaev is currently on a four-finish streak, all of them under BRAVE Combat Federation’s banner. He has been recognized as the hottest prospect in Europe and his next fight has been lauded as the biggest combat sports event of the year in Sweden.

The champion Jarrah Al Selawe holds a pro record of 13 wins and three losses. In his last fight, Al Selawe avenged his loss against Abdoul Abdouraguimov and regained
the world title, while being recognized as the biggest MMA fighter in the history of the Middle East.

Jarrah Al Selawe and Khamzat Chimaev were supposed to face each other in April, during the BRAVE CF debut fight card in Sweden. However, the event, as the other
two already scheduled events by the world’s fastest-growing MMA promotion, was postponed until further notice due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak worldwide.
