Muhammad vs. Brady
Belal Muhammad, DEC
Belal can crack if he needs to and he'll take one to give two. I think he's just an overall better fighter in every aspect, should be an easy three round sweep.

Anyone else think it kinda ******** how Leon got remove from the ranking, To force him to fight a super dangerous, Unranked guy, It be like if the NBA just remove the Laker from the ranking because their Boring and it a double standard to because Ortega was out for like 2 year and was ranked 2 just before the Zombie fight. Also Leon Derseve a top 5 guy because his on like a 9 fight win streak, Who Else on a win streak like that is not getting high ranked guy , Only Tony but that because of the Khabib Sitution, MMA should still be a Sport so boring ass fighter should get a chance

But this is still a great fight and the UFC is making me root for Leon TBH.

Nope. **** him. He acts like he's lord of the manor and he's never won a belt or even gotten close. What's he done to earn the right to pick his battles?

FOFO.

Fight or **** off.

As I was saying that fight is definitely happening. 
Leon Edwards just pulled a Tony Ferguson.

Thats a ****jing good main event. I was affraid Dana put Chimaev again gatekeeper like Maia, Lawler or RDA. Now he have a very hard test in front of him and thats a good opportuniti for Edwards to stop contender from passing in front of him.

Khamzat Chimaev, TKO, R4
Is this an upset? Not really. Chimaev has been training his ass off and he's ready to go. Edwards is fighting cold, hasn't fought since March. Big surprise round 4 TKO.

Muhammad vs. Brady
Belal Muhammad, DEC
Bel is impossibly tough and brady will probably gas when he can't get a finish Leaning toward Bel for decision but all depends on the blind halfwits judging.

Moraes vs. Font
Marlon Moraes, TKO, R2
Not sure should be a slug fest see who is left standing.

Winn vs. Neto
Antônio Braga Neto, SUB, R1
Aside from a lucky punch winn is losing by sub.

I feel like making Thompson vs Neal is a hedge bet by the UFC in case they lose Leon Scott. But I love Stephen Thompson and I think he's one of the greatest strikers of all time, but this is a dangerous fight. Neal has looked almost perfect in his UFC tenure. But I'll never pick against the side-kick phenom.

More time pass, more Thompson is slower but I think he is still good enought to win this fight by split decision

Marlon Moraes, Sub, R1
I Think That Finish Will Be Similar To The Pedro Munhoz Finish Over Rob Font. Marlon Is Going To Rock Him With A Switch Kick To The Head And Rob Will Shoot A Lazy Takedown And Get Guillotined.
