    Who wins this fight? This is a big step up for Edwards but I feel like it's the perfect opponent for him to jump into the top 15. Cerrone is on a decline and Edwards is underrated. I think in a five rounder Edwards will get the stoppage here. Who you got?

    Edwards is pretty underrated. Only one loss in his last seven to Usman and some really good wins like Tumenov especially Luque

    just intimidate cerrone and its an easy win.

    if you let him relax, shake your hand and hug you its a tough night

    Leon is not much of a finisher. I do think he wins a decision though.

    as ridiculous as this sounds, its true. whenever people are goody with him and play his stupid "lets just hug during pre-fight press conferences and weigh ins" they lose. whenever people get in his head or act like a dick to him, he loses

    maybe the biggest headcase in the UFC, and I like the guy. but he cant handle pressure or stress

    This is the type of fight I hate , I'm a big fan of Cerrone and would love to see him win this fight but it's probably better for the division if the young guy Leon wins this fight and builds himself as a prospect .

    Leon puts the final nail in verrone’s Coffin and sends him off to irrelevancy once and for all.

    Edwards via UD. Kid can grapple far better than he can strike. Seriously, he came in hyped as a boxer but he takes people out with his grappling game and has been doing that pretty much since his UFC debut.

    Edwards by DEC, he has pretty solid boxing and good grappling, he is really underrated

    I actually think Cerrone wins, Edwards doesn't have a lot of power and does get clipped quite a bit.
