Asking to be added to the UFC game has become a commonality for up and coming fighters. Former UFC Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight Champion, Daniel Cormier is in charge of the games statistics, such as fighter ratings. So most of the demands come his way.
DC recently stated on the DC & Helwani show that Chimaev was extremely close to being added to the game, but Kevin Holland was a bit further away. This came after Holland questioned Ariel Helwani on why he wasn’t a part of the game yet.
Now, Chimaev has been added in the latest update, which was announced by the UFC.
Chimaev was quick to comment, asking fans which fighters they’re going to take down first, using his character.
Khamzat Chimaev fights #3 ranked Welterweight, Leon Edwards next month.
