Burns named the favorite in the Chimaev vs Whittaker fight

Gilbert, a former UFC welterweight title challenger, shared his opinion on the recently announced fight between Hamzat Chimaev and Robert Whittaker, the promotion's former middleweight champion.

"It's going to be a big test for Hamzat Chimaev. I like both participants in this fight. Both Hamzat and Robert have chances to succeed. I think Chimaev will get the win. He's going to take a takedown, show a master class and get a title shot. Robert is a tough guy, but the victory will go to Hamzat," said Burns in an interview with The Schmo.

Recall, the fight between Chimaev and Whittaker will take place on June 22 and will headline the first UFC event in Saudi Arabia, which will be called UFC On ABC 6.
