Khamzat Chimaev has once again called out Conor McGregor for a fight inside the Octagon, according to Heavy. The UFC fighter even picked the time and venue for a potential bout between him and “The Notorious.”

“March in London let’s do it bro King vs King,” the Russian-born Swedish fighter said in a tweet Monday. He went on to tag McGregor while taking a jibe at fellow UFC fighter Nate Diaz in the same tweet.

This isn’t the first time Chimaev has called out MMA fighters on social media. He’s been throwing down challenges like jabs and it looks like McGregor is the latest target.

However, the match is far from possible as of now because the Irishman is out with a gruesome leg injury that occurred during his match against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in Las Vegas.

Chimaev, 27, also appeared to call out McGregor last month after his first-round victory against Jingliang Li at UFC 267 in Abu Dhabi. He is currently 10-0 in the UFC’s welterweight division.
