What a surprise it was to have The Wolf, Khamzat Chimaev, and his pack come train at AKA Thailand. Usually, someone as high profile as Chimaev will go through all of the proper channels to visit the gym to get red carpet service. Athletes of his caliber and popularity go through AKA Thailand owner/founder, Mike Swick, when they want to schedule a visit. However, Chimaev et al showed up unannounced and went straight to work!
Apparently, Swick wasn’t on site but his phone exploded with calls and texts alerting him to Chimaev’s arrival! Swick took to his Instagram and let everyone know that Khamzat was in the house!
“I was out and my phone started going crazy about an army that showed up to #AKAThailand!
It was true. It was #KhamzatChimaev’s crew and they were ready for action! Welcome to the jungle!”
Khamzat Chimaev is currently undefeated in his MMA career and has been absolutely obliterating his opponents in the UFC. He’s always been known as a guy that travels around for training and in doing so, learns from everywhere that he goes. So, when The Wolf and his pack show up at AKA Thailand, they were welcomed with open arms!
