Edwards vs. Covington Fight Predictions
12.11.2023 | 1:48 PM ET
Leon Edwards, DEC
I know there are stacks of editorials saying that ring rust is not a thing, but two years out of the cage can't be good.
Rakhmonov vs. Thompson
Shavkat Rakhmonov, SUB, R3
But if you're going to place a hedge bet, this is the time to do it.
Ferguson vs. Pimblett
Paddy Pimblett, SUB, R3
This hurts. Hope I'm wrong.

One fighter that I am super confident is gonna win is Pantoja, i didn't even know this before today but in his last fight against Royval he had a knee injure and fought anyway. After the fight he had surgery and could not fight for a long time.
If he finished Royval in round 2 while not 100% there is no way that he will lose now after improving and becoming a champion. There is some truth to the fact becoming a champion instantly makes you better.

Not saying they will lose, but time snatches the W from everybody eventually.
