Rare Pictures of Khamzat Chimaev With No Beard | Revealed
Khamzat Chimaev has taken the UFC by storm by destroying his opponents, and only being hit 2 times in his first 4 UFC fights.
Yep, you read that correctly.
What may be even more impressive than his performance is his massive beard. Many fans have wondered, what does Khamazat Chimaev look like with no beard?
Pictures of Khamzat With No Beard
A digitally altered picture of Khamzat with no beard floated around the internet, and many fans were shocked at the result.
Khamzat seemingly had no chin whatsoever, and fans joked that they completely understood why he has the massive beard after all.
Thankfully for Khamzat, that is not what he actually looks like as in his earlier fights of his career, he had yet to grow out the beard.
You are able to see that he still looks extremely intimidating, especially as the ferocious scar on his lip is even more noticeable.
The scar on his lip was a result of him falling down the stairs and landing on concrete at the age of 2.
This fact alone makes his young career all that more impressive.
Khamzat's beard is trimmed and you can begin to see signs of what the massive beard would eventually become.
It's safe to say that Khamzat indeed does have a regular chin underneath all of that facial hair, but the same can't be said for Jiri Prochazka with no beard.
Although Khamzat still looks much like himself without a beard, he looks much less intimidating when his head isn't shaved, and when Khamzat's hair is grown out.
Is Khamzat Related to Khabib?
Khamzat Chimaev is not related to Khabib Nurmagomedov. In fact, they're not even friends.
However many fans often confuse the two, as they both have massive beards (with the mustache shaved), they speak with very thick accents, and most importantly, they have elite wrestling skills.
Elite Wrestling Skills
Khabib was able to use his wrestling to completely overwhelm his opponents, to the point where he has only lost two rounds in 29 fights, before retiring in the middle of his prime.
Although Khamzat is just entering the prime of his MMA career, it wasn't until his fight against Gilbert Burns, that he was actually hit more than two times.
Khamzat would also use his elite wrestling skills to take down his opponents, and never let them get back up, as he would quickly finish them.
Smash in Both of Their Vocabularies
Khabib originally introduced the phrase that he wanted to 'Smash these guys'.
In fact, in arguably the biggest grudge match in the history of MMA, when Khabib would face Conor McGregor in the face offs, Khabib would tell the crowd:
Tomorrow night I'm gonna smash your boy guys

When Khamzat took the UFC by storm, winning so dominantly and so frequently, he would state in his post-fight interview that he wanted to 'Smash everybody'.
Khamzat would repeatedly use that phrase in interviews through the years.
