I was kinda hoping for a step down or so for Edmen's next fight given the way he looked in his last fight and his still young age.. maybe there is still time for him to grow into what we all were hoping for but sending him to another elite guy like that.. I dunno
I really thought Kelvin was going back to 170, as he teased with his past posts on IG
Kelvin by KO. Apparently the mauling Edmen just got from Brunson didn't deter the UFC from wanting to push him into an even harder (IMO) match up.
Gas by ko
This isn't right. I could see either guy winning honestly but both can't afford another devastating loss. Makes no sense.
If Darren Till's first fight at Middleweight was against Gastelum after suffering back to back Finish Losses, Edmen who only suffered his FIRST loss should be fine, he's a big boy, and he was hyped to hell.
UFC isn't giving him a tune up, and I can respect that, despite Gastelum's Fight IQ he's still a game opponent if he shows up right on the night.
It's sink or swim, I'd much rather see if he's as good as he thinks he is, or if he loses to Gastelum he goes back and thinks about things, better to do that than Pad his record and have him get flattened by an elite Fighter again.
Horrible match-up for Edmen, Kelvin is too durable to be stopped early and he pushes a pace that will exhaust Edmen. Ronda must have asked Dana to keep pushing her protegee, but he's getting mauled.
True but Till is a but more mature and seasoned than Edmond. As i said I could see either guy winning. But for Kelvin this could potentially be his 4th L in a row. Or back to back devastating losses for a VERY young prospect with plenty of potential.
One of those outcomes are guaranteed with this matchup. I know there are no "easy" fights but Edmond should not be fighting up in rankings after a bad loss like that. That's just bogus match making and management.
But UFC does fuck up sometimes.
Dumb fight. Kelvin's still young and is proven. Mainstay contender, but in the wrong weight class. Too small. While Edmen's still a good prospect.
The gas tank looked very suspect so I don't like his chances, even if Kelvin chooses to stand. Pressure and durability, heavy inside boxing. Edmen's better from range. Then the potential wrestling. Kelvin very likely wears him out and beats him up bad. That's 2 tough losses, then.
That's a weird one. Edmen is such a talent, why make a fight with Kelvin after losing to Brunson?
I know Kelvin looked bad in his last two, but everyone knows he can do so much better. He probably will this time around.
Edmen is better than people are assuming here, he took a round off Brunson, he just needs some adjustments to his TDD and pacing.
KG has looked terrible recently but he is a nightmare match up vs edmen. Solid hands and cardio. KG by TKO.
Looks like they've given up on Edmen after that shambolic showing last time out in his first real test, haha. Thought they'd take it easier on him than this, Kelvin fucks him up.
I agree. Matchmaking makes no sense - Edmen needs a rebound fight, and a change in camp/coach from Mr. Head Mooment
Pointless fight. Shabazyan needs experience, even if he somehow gets past KG (which I don't see happening) he is gonna be again up there being thrown to the wolves. Would make much more sense for him to fight someone like Vettori or Heinish imho.
daamn kelvin would fokin rip edmen apart then eat the scraps
Edmen lost Dana a lot of money (gambling) so this is revenge
