What Khamzat Chimaev observed from Nate Diaz did not impress him in the least.

Despite finishing veteran Tony Ferguson with a guillotine choke in the UFC 279 main event on Saturday night, the UFC challenger thought Diaz performed poorly.

Chimaev was slated to face Diaz, but instead, after failing to make weight by 7.5 pounds on Friday morning for what was supposed to be a welterweight battle with Diaz, he faced and defeated Kevin Holland in the co-main event.

“If I fought him, I’d kill him,” Chimaev told reporters at the UFC 279 post-fight press conference. “I’d be in the jail, so maybe I have to be happy.”
