Whittaker - Chimaev: prediction by Cannonnier

Former UFC middleweight title challenger Jared Cannonnier shared his expectations for the upcoming fight between former division champion Robert Whittaker and Hamzat Chimaev.

"It's an interesting bout. Whittaker will pick up the win if the fight goes to the late rounds. Chimaev, on the other hand, can pick up a win by striking. But that's going to be hard to do. Especially against Whittaker, a guy with a lot of experience. So I'm betting on Robert to win," Cannonier said in an interview with James Lynch.

Recall that Whittaker and Chimaev will meet on June 22 in the main event of the UFC on ABC 6 show in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
