RUMOR: Chimaev vs. Edwards fight will headline UFC 300
Journalist, insider and columnist Ariel Helwani claims that UFC 300 will be headlined by the fight of the organization's welterweight champion Leon Edwards With Khamzat Chimaev. The only reason why the fight has not yet been announced is that Chimaev does not have an American visa.
“If the UFC could make a fight happen with the snap of a finger, it would be the fight they are currently working on because they consider it the biggest event possible, and that is the fight between Khamzat Chimaev and Leon Edwards. Based on Dana White's statements, his words about the attendant difficulties, and information received from my sources, I conclude that everything comes down to Chimaev's ability to fight in the United States. The last time he fought in the United States was almost two years ago, and now they are trying to solve this problem,” Helwani said.
Let us remind you that the anniversary UFC 300 will take place on the night of April 14 in Las Vegas.
