    Khamzat vs Edwards, just two unranked fighters getting a paycheck.

    Give it Leon if he wins.

    Kham needs another test after Leon if he wins.

    He already has wins over all of the people that ducked him. That’s half the division. Khamzat next champ, you can’t stop the train.

    Leon on a VERY long line of that promise......has he not been paying attention?

    Promised title shots in UFC are like " upgrades" with your cell plan.

    the winner is still behind the winner of Masvidal and Colby although Khamzat might jump both with a W considering Usman already beat them and the UFC should be able to sell the fuck out of Usman v Khamzat.

    Leon might jump Colby and Mas if he can finish Khamzat but otherwise NO ONE, especially not Dana wants to see Usman v Leon 2

    Even though Edwards is technically unranked, this is a very huge step up in competition for Khazmat. I like watching him kick ass and hope he continues to do so.

    I put Colby over him tbh. If Usman is still champ I don't think Leon has improved enough to prevent Usman from taking him down again. The Colby fight was super close before the finish so I say Colby vs Mas and if Colby wins he gets Usman again.

    Leon actually seems likable. It should be no surprise if he easily wins by decision.

    He’ll have to win in spectacular fashion

    if he beats Dana’s boy by leg kicking and jabbing his way to a decision he’s not gonna get the shot out of spite

    He's in London and we are in a pandemic. I hear it's tough to train and things are generally more restricted there. I'm not sure he should be punished for that.

    Yeah maybe he was promised a title shot. 3 or 4 other guys were probably promised title shots too.

    Lmao at Edwards winning against Khamzat.
    After this fight Khamzat will beat 2 Nigerians in a row and become the Triple C (WW, MW and the Sweden wrestling champ)

    Leon isn’t unranked. He’s #3 right now. He’s also on a 8 fight win streak over solid guys like RDA, Nelson, Luque and Cerrone. UFC has offered him a title shot before as well. If he beats Khamzat impressively he deserves it.

    Same goes for Khamzat. He will be ranked #3 if he beats Leon and he’s currently riding possibly the best 3 fight win streak to start a UFC career ever. Beating Leon proves he’s legit and deserves a shot.

    Colby and Mas already had their chance. They can get it after Leon/Khamzat

    He’s on an 8 fight win streak. I do t think it’s out of the question for him to be pushing for a title shot.
