Darren Till seems to be friends with just about everyone on the UFC roster.

The UFC middleweight recently got into a hilarious Instagram Live exchange with undefeated welterweight and middleweight prospect Khamzat Chimaev, with the latter flashing what appears to be a switchblade knife during the call.

“Say it to me where you want, I will fight brother. We’ll fight. Bullsh*t guys talk too much but we’ll have to show real fight, brother” Chimaev said.

“Oh yeah, I’ll fight you. Of course, you know I will. But you know I beat you right? You know I beat you easy. You know this. You know this,” Till said.

“Cage going to show it, brother. If you want to fight with me always welcome, but I think I can smash you easy, brother,” Chimaev said.

“You think you can smash me easy?” Till said.

“Of course, brother,” Chimaev responded.

“You’re too slow. Too slow,” Till joked.

Chimaev is expected to return to the Octagon to face top-ten welterweight Neil Magny this summer, but the Russian-born fighter also wants to compete at middleweight in November.

As for Till, ‘The Gorilla’ will headline the upcoming UFC Fight Night card on Aug. 14 opposite top-five middleweight Derek Brunson. No venue or location has been announced as of yet.
