“I know people sit there and say he’s not fighting certain people,” Stewart said of Chimaev. “He hasn’t done it yet. But look here, fellow, man buried my teeth just by turning my neck.

“He’s so strong, bruv. You can sit there and say,” It’s not strength, “and this. Brother, he is very technical and very strong. “

Of course, Chimaev was one of the UFC’s breakout stars in 2020, winning overwhelmingly over two months against Gerald Marshard, Lismacky and John Phillips.

Stewart spent time at the All-Stars Gym in Sweden prior to Chimaev’s Octagon debut, so he previewed what’s going to happen.

“I’ve seen what he’s doing,” Stewart said. “He’s not a confused man. But in this game, yeah, MMA is MMA and anything can happen. So I heard from Fabian that Leon was a bad guy and that Khamzat was a bad guy. It will be a good match.

“Unfortunately, (Chimaev) isn’t fighting anyone, but what do you want him to do? I’m looking forward to fighting only the person in front of me.”
