Khamzat Chimaev apparently doesn’t feel too bad about missing weight for his UFC 279 fight against Nate Diaz.

On Friday, Chimaev weighed in 7.5 pounds over the welterweight limit, completely screwing up the UFC 279 fight card.

The early reports claim that the Chimaev vs. Diaz fight is off, and the UFC is scrambling to find a last-minute replacement for the main event.

About a half hour after missing weight, Chimaev joked about the situation on Twitter by posting a photoshopped photo of himself blaming Darren Till for his situation.

Fans didn’t find the joke funny and ripped into Chimaev to shreds.

“Dude can’t handle the spotlight yet. They gave him as close to a “walk in the park” as it gets in fighting, and he misses weight by 2 miles.The UFC basically sent him to terminate Diaz and his contract but he can’t even take it seriously.”

“It aint even funny, all that talent but 0 professionalism. At this rate you’ll never ever be champion.”
