Somehow, after defeating one of the top welterweights on the planet in an absolute war at UFC 273, a big portion of the MMA community seems to be writing off Khamzat Chimaev. Why is that?

On this edition of Heck of a Morning, MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck gives his thoughts on Chimaev’s win over Gilbert Burns in a memorable featured bout this past Saturday in Jacksonville, Fla., Alexander Volkanovski’s near perfect game over Chan Sung Jung and where it puts him in the pound-for-pound discussion, Aljamain Sterling exercising the demons against Petr Yan to unify the bantamweight championship, whether Chimaev facing Colby Covington next is the fight to make, and much more.

You can listen live to Heck of a Morning Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 8 a.m. ET on the MMA Fighting Twitter Spaces.
