UFC Star Khmazat Chimaev Says “If Allah Allows Me to…Give Me a Rifle and Let Me Go to Palestine”

UFC star Khamzat Chimaev had a lot to say regarding the Israel-Hamas war after beating Kamru Osman by decision.

Chimaev after defeating Usman told a packed out crowd in Abu Dhabi “If Allah allows me to, Wallahi I will go there as the first person. By Allah, give me a rifle and let me go to Palestine.”

He continued “Allah be pleased with you. Wallahi, I’ve not been raised to be in here wearing shorts. Do you Chechens not know the heart we have in our body? If I get permission to fight for Allah, I’m ready to die for him. I’m not as worried about dying as I am worried about my Muslim brothers.”

Per SportsKeeda:

Khamzat Chimaev used his time on the mic to express his desire to play a role in the ongoing armed conflict between Israel and Palestine according to an online source.

Chimaev defeated former UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman via majority decision at the UFC 294 PPV event held in Abu Dhabi, UAE. ‘Borz’ has been a vocal supporter of the Palestinian side and used the platform to send his message across as the translation suggests.

Chimaev made the emotional speech in the Russian language, and here is the translation of it as posted on @CensoredMen ‘X’ (formerly Twitter) handle:

“If Allah allows me to, Wallahi I will go there as the first person. By Allah, give me a rifle and let me go to Palestine. Allah be pleased with you. Wallahi, I’ve not been raised to be in here wearing shorts. Do you Chechens not know the heart we have in our body? If I get permission to fight for Allah, I’m ready to die for him. I’m not as worried about dying as I am worried about my Muslim brothers.”

Khmazat is not Palestinian but is from Chechnya, Russia but later emigrated  to Sweden where he trained for wrestling.
