Now, Chimaev has moved to the UAE, much closer to Saudi Arabia, which is exactly where Ronaldo lives and competes. A year after the video upload, fans still remember the wholesome moment that sparked in Chimaev’s car.

Khamzat Chimaev is one of the most exciting fighters to watch. He’s barely lost a fight in the past few years, and when you win as much as he does, you want some celebrities on your side. The old video showed us Chimaev’s interesting side as he and his friends became fans of Ronaldo. He even invited Ronaldo to his next fight against Gilbert Burns.

“He has a game that’s why he said he could not come. But he’s going to watch my fight,” said ‘Borz’. “When [Ronaldo] started following me, I wrote to him, he’s the champ. Then he wrote ‘SMASH EVERYBODY’. 100% brother. Then I invited him to my fight. I’m not a big fan of football, but this guy is big. One of the best guys in the world in football. He’s a nice guy.”

The star ended up declining Chimaev’s requests since he was as busy as one could expect. While the camera rolled, Chimaev and his friends talked about how ‘Borz’ would be a lot richer after “smashing” Burns in the cage. That could possibly open up a way to actually arrange things for Ronaldo to be invited to his fight after that. Of course, that never happened, but the moment became quite iconic in the star’s personal history.

Will Ronaldo ever show up for a fight?

Everyone’s favorite Ronaldo is a very good friend of Khabib Nurmagomedov. He’s also a big fan of the UFC. However, in spite of Chimaev’s invitation, there is no confirmation that the Al Nassr player will ever show up to a fight. Fans can only hope that the iconic duo will finally make headlines. But Ronaldo certainly has a chance to meet Khamzat soon.

This can come to fruition when Chimaev faces off against Paulo Costa in his upcoming bout. The fight is meant to happen at UFC 294 on October 21st. Both Costa and Chimaev have failed to actually fight their previous opponents. The former pulled out of a fight, and the latter couldn’t make weight, leading to a fight with a different opponent. Now, the two will face each other soon. But Will Ronaldo ever come down to show his support to ‘Borz‘? Only time will tell.
