Stephen Thompson: Colby Covington kommer besegra Khamzat ChimaevMMA & UFC NYHETER – SVERIGE

Stephen Thompson tror att Colby Covington skulle besegra svenske Khamzat Chimaev om herrarna möts framöver.

Stephen Thompson: Colby Covingtons kondition skulle bli för mycket för Khamzat Chimaev

Covington kommer senast från en dominant seger över den forne vännen, numera fienden, Jorge Masvidal vid UFC 272. Hans kommande match är troligen ett möte mot Chimaev som hittills gått som tåget i UFC då han avslutat alla sina motståndare förutom Gilbert Burns.

Oddsen mellan Chimaev och Covington är jämna men deras welterviktskonkurrent Stephen Thompson tror att amerikanens otroliga kondition hade blivit avgörande.

Thompson uttryckte dock tvivel kring om matchen ens kommer äga rum i en intervju med Submission Radio:

I’m not really sure if that will happen. I don’t think Colby wants it, obviously, and especially against a guy that hasn’t made weight. So, I don’t blame him. If it does happen, I think if it goes five-five, I think Colby’s got it if it goes in the later rounds. Just because he’s got cardio for days. And we saw the fight with Chimaev and Gilbert Burns, and Chimaev started to fatigue. And I don’t know if that’s because he did make weight, right? And he was depleted? Cause he killed himself to get down to 170. Will he be able to do it again? I don’t know.

If he doesn’t make weight, I wouldn’t fight him. I would say no. But if it does [happen], if Chimaev wins, it’s gonna have to be early on in the rounds. But if it goes all five, definitely Colby (Covington.) He’s got cardio for days, and Chimaev is just a big 170-er man. He shouldn’t even be a 170, he should be up at 185.

Covington är dock inte den enda fightern som kopplats ihop med Chimaev. Svensken har även utmanat mellanviktsmästaren Alex Pereira och dessutom har Chimaev blivit konstant utmanad av Belal Muhammad. Det återstår att se vem han möter härnäst.
