It appears that Khamzat Chimaev turned down a fight with former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold.

Ariel Helwani revealed that Rockhold had informed him that Chimaev declined to fight the former champion on August 28 in a middleweight main event matchup. It is suggested that Chimaev has plans to stay at welterweight.

Rockhold is now looking to fight a top-ranked 185-pound fighter in his return to the division later this year.
