Paulo Costa agrees that Khamzat Chimaev is a bad matchup for Alex Pereira . Chimaev (12-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) called newly crowned middleweight champion Pereira (7-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) “easy money” and challenged him for a title fight at UFC 283 in Brazil. The former two-division Glory Kickboxing champion knocked out Israel Adesanya to claim the middleweight title at UFC 281, but showed moments of struggle on the ground – which Costa thinks would make him a favorable matchup for a grappler of Chimaev’s level. “Yeah bro, he’s smart. He’s smart,” Costa told Submission Radio.
