Dan Hardy believes the UFC’s booking of Nate Diaz vs. Khamzat Chimaev is almost criminal.

Paddy Pimblett has the potential to be a future UFC champion. At least, so says Dan Hardy. Pimblett had a successful sophomore outing in the UFC when he submitted Kazula Vargas in the first round at UFC London.
