lol, picking Khamzat to get KO'd in the first can't be based on anything logical. Even if you think he's going to get exposed.

Yeah I'm sorry Dwayne Black, but I agree with Erison. Edwards is a very talented fighter for sure, and could very well dominate Chimaev from start to finish, but he just doesn't KO people.
Especially in rounds 1 or 2.


He might TKo him late in rounds 4 or 5, if we find out that Chimaev's cardio is crap.
But other than that, every other outcome is more probable than your bold TKO round 1 prediction for Edwards.

I can surely see a decision win for Edwards, or, why the hell not, a round 1 Ko for Chimaev. Even a submission win for Chimaev, or a submission win for Edwards are more likely outcomes than this Round 1 TKO for Edwards...

But hey, maybe Edwards will make me eat my words... Kevin Holland just won by KO from his back in Souza's guard, it's a crazy sport so who knows for sure ?

Edwards vs. Chimaev
Khamzat Chimaev, TKO, R1
Watching the Edwards brothers fight is more boring than dating a girl who only talks about painting her nails and buying makeup hahaha While Chimaev hasn't faced a top 10, he has been seen many tools in the fight (grappling, ground and pound, wrestling and stand-up power) and those who have trained with him (people like Alexander Gustafsson) say the guy is for real. Hopefully on January 20, Borz will make a big statement for the division by demolishing Edwards in the first round (like McGregor vs. Poirier did at UFC 178 or Andesanya vs. Brunson at UFC 230). Leon Edwards, a boring fighter, may fight differently when he knows that refusing a fight and demanding title shots will get you nowhere if you don't know how to back up what you ask.

Edwards will easily defend his takedowns, just like Aliskerov did, and Khamzat's striking is pretty average/basic. Leon will be just too fast for him

Replay of this lol
I'm not even that big of Khamzat hater, he's just not that good.

@Dwayne Black

“Edwards will easily defend his takedowns, just like Aliskerov did”
Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t Aliskerov a Sambo World Champion?
That’s a whole different ball of wax as compared to Leon Edwards.

Chiesa really doesnt have any major advantage in this matchup, he may be able to catch magny with a sub but I doubt that happens

@taylor I don't give a **** about someone being a Sambo World Champion or Olympic Gold Medal in Wresling or kickboxing champion  or anything in that matter. Because MMA is diffrent when you mix all the skills together. I don't really watch Leon Edwards fight because hes the most boring fighter in the UFC but I think he has great wresling and It wouldn't suprise me if he stops Khamzat Takedown

I’m pretty sure that Magny was the backup for the fight, but I’d much rather see Masvidal or Colby step in.
