Edwards vs. Muhammad Fight Predictions

Leon Edwards, DEC
Good replacement. Edwards deserves better than Muhammad, but that's still a big step up from the Chimaev fight, wich was a farce. Chimaev is a talented prospect for sure, but at 3 - 0 in the UFC his level of competition is just mediocre at this point, and he should be facing the likes of Magny, Lawler, Jingliang or Ponzinibbio at best, not the top of the division. Edwards vs Thompson would have made sense if Wonderboy wasn't injured, or interesting matchups vs Covington or Chiesa. Anyway, this is a good coherant fight, and I expect Edwards to win a competitive but clear decision against a game but outguned Belal. Should be pretty fun to watch, because Belal likes to pressure a lot.
Cirkunov vs. Spann
Misha Cirkunov, SUB, R1
I jumped out the Cirkunov train after he was ko'd by Volkan Oezdemir, Teixeira and Walker (and a submission win over Patrick Cummings didn't proved anything), but he really impressed me against Crute, who is a very good and well rounded prospect. His chin isn't good, but after all, Volkan Oezdemir, Teixeira and Walker all hits very hard. Cirkunov is so dangerous on the ground, if he can survive a few scares here, he should be able to get a takedown and finish the fight.
Ige vs. Tucker
Dan Ige, DEC
Interesting. I wonder who they gonna give to Swanson now that Tucker is stepping in to fight Ige. It better be a fun fight, because Swanson deserves better than that at this point : Barboza would be so fun to watch, or a rematch vs Stephens. Hell even someone inconsistant but fun to watch like Cacerès would make sense. Is Chinese fighter Guan still in the UFC by the way ? Haven't heard of him in quite a while.
