Chiesa, 32, is enjoying a three-fight winning streak, most recently beating Rafael dos Anjos via unanimous decision in January.
He dismissed the idea that he or his fellow fighters are scared of entering the octagon with ‘Borz.’
“There’s not a guy on the roster that’s afraid of anybody,” he said. “F*ck no dude, this is the fighting business, we’re all here for a reason.”
Chimaev has caused quite the stir since he made his UFC debut in July, when he dominated John Phillips in a middleweight bout and secured a second-round submission victory.
He then sensationally fought and beat Rhys McKee at welterweight just 10 days later, before returning to middleweight to record a 17-second knockout of Gerald Meerschaert in September.
