    In my opinion it is Usman, a pure wrestler who doesn’t care about making it an interesting fight, he will stomp his toes and push his big body into Khazmat until the ref either pulls him off or until the round ends. A fighter who has cardio for days and a guy who isn’t scared to win ugly.

    Usman would have to watch his chin in the first exchanges though

    Leon is a bad matchup for him. Good defensive wrestling, great cardio, moves very well, technical striking... Chimaev is fucked.

    Good shout, worrying that he is a former 155’er though

    Nobody fucking knows. Leon Edwards might be the hardest match up to be honest, he is pretty good across the board.

    No one has any idea, except for maybe people that he trains with. No one knows his complete skill set, how his skills scale up in rank, or what weaknesses he has. Maybe against good wrestlers, he's easily pushed back. Maybe his submission game is average. Maybe his stamina is shit. No one knows.

    Prime Hendricks, Roided Tibau, TRT Vitor and Testosterone Chael might have a shot against him. All together.

    seeing know we know none of his weakness thats kinda hard to gauge

    all we know is he has strong takedowns and slams, suffocating top game with ruthless gnp,submissions and KO Power

    I agree. If he beats Leon Scott dominantly, I will be VERY impressed.

    Khamzat would keep it standing and Usman's striking is D-level at best

    Leon is a bad match up for him. If he takes him, he probably can win anyone
