Khamzat Chimaev is massive.

The former welterweight turned middleweight has bulked up ahead of his fight with Paulo Costa at UFC 294 and it's actually very impressive.

Chimaev shared a new photo of himself drenched in sweat with muscles bulging, which is a stark contrast to his formerly lean look.

MMA Twitter react to Khamzat Chimaev's new body

MMA Twitter was quick to respond to the photo, some joking that Costa had shared his "secret juice" with his opponent and now it's coming back to haunt him.

Chimaev hasn't fought since September 2022, when he was initially scheduled to fight Nate Diaz. He ended up missing weight by seven and a half pounds. In order to keep him on the card an epic shuffle of three fights occurred and he ended up fighting Kevin Holland.
