    He's looked great fighting bums, but this might be the biggest jump up in competition i've ever seen.

    That being said, if he wins, look out...

    Not biggest jump ever by any stretch. Although it will be interesting to see how he does in his next fight. He’s definitely a very hot prospect right now.

    He got a lot of muricans TRIGGERED. That’s hate successful people from other countries. Especially if they are muslims. the guy is pretty damn good. Let him prove himself.

    lmao plenty of Americans rooting for him. I'm rooting for him. But saying that he went from non ranked guys to a top 3 guy is perfectly valid. He skipped the entire top 15 and got himself a fight against the guy that a lot considered the next title contender.

    It's why i love this pseudo sport. If this was boxing he would be fighting bums for the next several years, and we would have to hear from insufferable fanboys how great he is despite fighting noone. Soon we will know what's what.

    Yuji Nagata's first MMA fights were Cro Cop and Fedor.

    He went from pro-wrestling to fighting some of the baddest men of all time.

    GOAT shit.

    Ok UFC had Patrick Cote debut against a prime Tito Ortiz at a weight class above his natural one.

    In the event you say well not anymore Kevin Holland debuted against a monster in Thiago Santos. He was literally fed to the lions. I can list more if you’d like these things do happen in the UFC.

    Leon is the last fortress between him and establishing a dynasty at the WW division. If he runs thru Leon which I expect him to do comfortably he gains the title from either Usman/Burns next

    It's a win/win for UFC. If Khamzat wins then this fight would make him legit as a top guy. If Edwards wins it would bring even more hype to him. Winner of this could get next title shot, possibly leapfrogging over Covington.

    Brock Lesnar went from fighting Min Soo-Kim to Frank Mir in his second ever pro fight.

    Also, Khamzat gonna smesh these guys.

    Leon is a good fighter. He is very technical. I have a hard time seeing Leon style being a problem for Hazmat?

    If Hazmat wins, it depends how he wins to get a title shot. If he destroys...just wow! Or even first round RNC...

    I see that ....I see a RNC from Hazmat at end of 1st round...calling it lol
