O'Malley reacted to the announcement of the Whittaker - Chimaev fight

UFC lightweight champion Sean O'Malley commented on the scheduling of a bout between the promotion's former middleweight division titleholder Robert Whittaker and Hamzat Chimaev.

"Chimaev vs. Whittaker is fire! Hamzat is a character still raising questions, still interesting. Many believe that in the fight against Usman, he was unconvincing, as Kamaru fought on short notice and three rounds," said the American on TimboSugarShow.

Recall, the fight between the Australian and the Chechen from the UAE will take place on June 22 in the main event of UFC on ABC 6 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The winner is expected to be the next challenger for the middleweight belt.
