It seems Khamzat Chimaev may not be done fighting just yet, after all. While a cryptic Instagram post Monday left doubt as to whether the fast-rising prospect would continue his octagon run, UFC president Dana White said Chimaev – who is currently in Las Vegas receiving treatment for a lingering case of COVID-19 – had an emotional moment but isn’t ready to call it a career. “When he got here, the doctors took care of him, and they put him on prednisone, which is a nasty f*cking steroid,” White told MMA Junkie.” So he’s on prednisone, and he’s supposed to be taking this thing and chilling, relaxing, and letting himself recover. He went in and f*cking trained today, felt like sh*t, and got super emotional and posted that. “He’s not supposed to be training, but you know, this guy’s a savage. He wants to fight like every f*cking weekend, and now he can’t even train, so he just got emotional and posted that, but he ain’t quitting.” Originally posted in Russian, a Google translation of Chimaev’s text certainly made it seem he was ready to retire.
