    I know rankings wise, it may not make too much sense. But if Edwards can’t get the Masvidal fight, I’d love to see a battle of Englishmen with Till vs. Edwards.

    Till missed weight against WB (and won a fairly controversial decision) and said himself that he didn’t deserve a title shot right now because of it. That fight keeps Till active in an exciting matchup of strikers, and Edwards has another opportunity to climb the ladder.

    I think till is too high up the ladder for him right now.

    I would like to see Leon fight masvidal or ponz, maybe even usman.

    Till would knock him out in a round.

    Till would slaughter him.

    Ponz is another good idea

    Lots of people said he’d KO Wonderboy too.

    I think Masvidal and Ponzinibbio would sleep Edwards. More-so Ponz.

    Till would embarrass Edwards though.

    Wonderboy and Leon are on different levels. Much different levels.

    Till is overrated, he's never been in a high paced 5 rounder, the WB fight was a boring starefest

    If he actually makes 170 (probably not), he'd be too drained to put up any serious output.

    Edwards would decision him easily

    There's a difference between the respect he needed to give Wonderboys striking and Edwards' striking.

    I personally couldn't see it going past the 1st.

    I'm not sold on Leon, he barely beat Cowboy today.

    Magny, ponz, rda, Masvidal, Lawler.


    Plenty of options for Edwards.

    Leon has no killer instinct. Not impressed. I love how he calls out another LW.

    Till actually looked impressive in his fight against Cerrone

    Styles make fights.

    Hunt rekd Kongo without taking any damage and far quicker than Cain did

    Does that make him better?

    That's the point dummy.

    We all know Till is far more powerful than Leon, which is why he'd look better against a guy like Cerrone, but his ground game is completely untested and so is his TDD.

    Leon just went a fast paced 5 rounds, Till's 5 rounder against WB was a staring contest.

    Ponzinibbio is the fight to make, for me. Big win for Edwards, that. Impressive.

    WB is a WAY more dynamic striker than Cerrone ever was & posed much more of a threat on the feet, don’t understand how you count running away from your opponent for 4 rounds impressive but whatever.

    Running? He just didnt get into a slugfest that most fans want and used his skill. I think people forget They do a training camp, what would be the use in doing all the preparation to then just swing away. Leon was calculated and precise
