Michael Bisping details his evening with Khamzat Chimaev and Darren Till: “Khamzat is out of his mind behind the wheel of a car”

Michael Bisping recently detailed an evening he spent with Khamzat Chimaev and Darren Till.


Posting a picture of ‘dinner out’ at Barry’s Downtown Prime Steakhouse in Circa Las Vegas, ‘The Count’ proceeded to take an evening drive with Khamzat Chimaev and Darren Till in a rented BMW.

In speaking on his ‘Believe You Me’ podcast, Bisping had this to say about his experience in the backseat of the BMW, with Chimaev at the wheel (h/t Sportskeeda):

“We get in the car, (Khamzat Chimaev’s) driving. Now I don’t know if he has a driving license or not. And I don’t know how tough it is to get a driver’s license in Chechnya because the motherf***er is out of his mind behind the wheel of a car. He is driving like a psychopath.”

Bisping went on to admit that Chimaev’s driving had him ‘sh***ing’ himself.

Michael Bisping further revealed the ‘Borz’ was driving at an extremely high rate of speed and was even on the wrong side of the road! Apparently Chimaev pulled into a gas station to switch drivers with Darren Till. ‘The Gorilla’ then proceeded to do doughnuts in the gas station lot, narrowly missing a gas pump. Sounds like a fun filled ride was had by all.
