The AllStar spoke with Mike Swick, founder/owner of AKA Thailand, about the potential of Khamzat Chimaev

Swick breaks down Chimaev:

“The guy is a freak. He is a freak of nature. As much as I didn’t want to believe the hype because he got hyped way too soon. Anytime someone comes in and wins a few fights and gets so overly hyped so fast sometimes that can be bad cause we don’t really know, we never seen him in a tough fight. But he’s proven himself. He has the potential too.

“I don’t think he has the Islam [Makhachev] potential, in my opinion, what I see so far because we haven’t see him grind out and do all of things that he can do but maybe, you know.”
