Whittaker vs. Chimaev: Thomson predicts an early finish to the fight

American mixed martial arts veteran, expert and commentator Josh Thomson has spoken out about the recently announced fight between former UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker and Hamzat Chimaev, which will take place on June 22 at UFC on ABC 6 in Riyadh.

"I'm leaning more towards Chimaev in the first and second rounds, but Robert will also have a chance at the start because Hamzat fights very sloppy. He throws himself recklessly at his opponents. It's an exciting fight for the fans, and I like everything a lot too.

I enjoy watching Hamzat fight. There is something about him that makes people watch him. It's his aggression, his inattentiveness, his recklessness and everything. This guy is fun to watch," MMA Mania quoted Thompson as saying.
