I don't think it'll become a fight night but I hope Edwards fights like any ranked welterweight besides Masvidal.

Ali Abdel tweeted out that that's nonsense and Usman will indeed be fighting, so take that for what it's worth

Nelson vs. Rodriguez
Daniel Rodriguez, DEC
I don't understand why Gunnar isn't fighting more often. I know he had a few injuries here and then but it might be something else : motivation ? Self confidence ? 5 fights in 5 years is such a waste of his prime. Daniel Rodriguez fought 16 times in those 5 years, including 9 fights in the UFC !

Murphy vs. Wood
Nathaniel Wood, DEC
Wood impressed the hell out of me at featherweight. He looks good, fast, powerful... Quality wins over Rosa and especially Jourdain... This is a way tougher test and I'm absolutely not confident in my pick, but I think Wood has founded his optimal weight class.

Duncan is fun if he works on striking defense I think he will beat low level UFC guys, his power is very good timing also just all offense.
