    I keep thinking about this fight and cant help but feel that its too much too soon for Khamzat. I am not a Leon fan at all lol but I cannot deny his abilities. He seriously has some of the best striking in the division both offensively and defensively(counters). Leon has solid takedown defense, good footwork, and is a good example of an intelligent fighter that can make alot of adjustments in between rounds. He is as legit as they come in welterweight and it shows in his long win streak. Wouldn’t surprise me if he eventually becomes champ too.

    I think Leon is going to completely school Khamzat and make it look easy. I also think Khamzat is going to get so dominated on the feet that in later rounds he will start to spam takedowns to try to win but it wont lead to much. Leon will get a unanimous decision and fight for belt next year.

    Hes a good fighter no doubt and has a bright future but he is getting pushed up to fast imo. Also him looking impressive against lesser competitors is one thing but against a top 5 caliber opponent its an entirely different story.

    If by own, you mean run away and jab him to a decision W, maybe.

    Agreed

    Khamzat may be legit but smart money is on Leon

    Leon needs to shit on khaz to justify sitting out for so long, and he’d likely have some actual leverage to turn the screws a bit on dana. If he wins in his standard fashion I’ll still respect it, at some point his lack of damage received has got to pay dividends in a division of wrestlers with knee, neck and back injuries. Leon may yet win the long game, we shall see.

    Khamzat has looked great against cans. León is a huge step up. I think it will be too much for him but hoping not. His hype train will be off the charts. Hoping Khamzat wins but only give him 20% chance.

    We realistically don’t know if this is too fast or not.

    I can't believe the UFC booked this fight, no one can say rankings matter ever again.

    Exciting match-up. I don’t think I can pick a clear favorite.

    I think Khamzat will win and I'm excited for the hype train.
    On the other hand nothing would be funnier than Leon putting a clinic on this guy.
