Kamaru Usman, UFC Welterweight Champion, is determined that Khamzat Chimiaev is not worthy of being considered.

Russian-born Swede Chimaev is poised to compete for the 170lb Belt after only four fights in mixed Martial Arts Premier Promotion.

If Gilbert Burns, his former title challenger, is defeated by the grappling champ, the wrestler phenom could be in the running for the welterweight belt.

Usman says that the UFC brass gave the undefeated Chechen a huge promotional push.

SunSport was told by the Love Hemp Ambassador: "It seems very fast. It's that part that is funny.

"Ofcourse, I get that they are bringing all the hype and all the media attention to this child. He hasn't done any of that yet.

TITLE TILT

Burns is confident that he or Chimaev can win the WW title shot with a "finish" at UFC 273



EXPERIENCE THE BURN

Gilbert Burns is confident that Chimaev will stop with UFC 273 "finish"

Chimaev has outdone all of his octagon rivals by decimating John Phillips and Gerald Meerschaert, as well as Li Jingliang, who is spectacularly choked to death.

Borz's work has not impressed Usman and he would love to see it mixed with the best that the stacked welterweight division offers.

Nigerian Nightmare stated that he had done his job and done what was required of him with opposition presented to him.

"And so, yeah. I'd love to see him get into the rankings and fight some guys in the ranks to really put down that flag [and] 'Hey! I really need to win a title shot.

"But it doesn't mean that it's hyped up and exciting, that doesn't make it worthy of a title shot."

While Usman is still recovering from hand surgery, he is expected to defend his title against Brit Leon Edwards later in the year.

Usman sees Edwards, a soft-spoken fighter who has won his last ten fights without defeat, as the true definition of a worthy title contender.

The 34-year old said, "Look at Leon Edwards. Leon fought me five year ago, I believe.

"Actually, maybe even more - I think about six or seven years ago when Leon fought me.

"And he hasn’t lost since then and is now potentially about getting a title shot.

"So, to basically just throw this kid in there for a year or so and start talking title contention when [Colby] Covington hasn't beat the likes [Jorge] Masvidal Edwards Burns, Burns. Luque, none.

"It's hard to say, 'Okay. We're just going over these guys and give it to him because there is a lot of excitement about him. '"

Regardless of whether Chimaev is able to make a statement against his Sanford MMA team-mate from the past, Usman insists that the UFC's new Russian prospect must win some major victories over the welterweight division elite.

He stated, "I think that he needs to have a few more fights."
