Belal Muhammad wants to fight Khamzat Chimaev!
Dana White recently claimed that no-one wanted to fight Khamzat Chimaev. Well Belal Muhammad does, he has been making fun of the Swedish fighter on Twitter.
His latest Tweet poked fun at Chimaev for leaning on the towel to make weight ahead of UFC 267:

A quick recap for those who didn’t follow the buildup to UFC 267, where Chimaev beat Jingliang Li. He needed three attempts to make weight and the footage show was from the second attempt.
Having weighed in at 171.5lbs around 45 minutes earlier Chimaev went away to try and lose the extra 0.5lbs. But by leaning on the towel he was able to reduce his weight to 166lbs.
The supervisor wasn’t buying it and Chimaev was forced to weigh in a third time, with his hands nowhere near the towel. He did eventually make 171lbs but Muhammad believes he was trying to cheat.
Muhammad, who is of Palestinian descent, is undefeated in his last seven UFC fights. So the matchmakers might well grant him his request to face Chimaev in the future.
