Not really saying much...I guess Burns did hurt him at one point
I don't know what this reply is supposed to mean.... lol
OK, OK I fat fingered, goddamn lmao
Usman is gonna lose tho
Even after Pena vs Nunes people still, think upsets can't occur?
Just to add to your point, I remember the backlash when Israel went dec with Anderson and I believe even Whittaker/KG made comments about that only for Whittaker to be finished effortlessly two fights after that, and Kelvin almost receiving his first loss via strikes, but old ass Andy didn't sustain any damage from Israel.
Conor got boxed up by nate and had a successful career
I believe you asked "What has Leon Edwards destroyed?" I was saying the only thing he's destroyed is any hope that his fights will be exciting.
It feels like they never even fought to me because it was so long ago. I think the rematch turns out exciting.
This fight has to happen, mainly just to get it out of the way to be honest.
Ths diference being McNuggets is smaller than Nate, while Edwards is bigger than both and probably walks around 25 pounds heavier than McNuggets was doing at the time.
Oh that makes way more sense haha. Maybe I was just tired and needed a nap (Which I've since had)
Yeah. Even his own example of why he can't win has a guy (Nate) getting dominated for 4 1/2 rounds only to land 1 shot that "Could" have won him the fight.
I agree that the Nate "almost KO-ing Edwards" thing has been overdone. But I also don't think Edwards dominating Nate for 4.5 rounds means anything. Younger/better versions of Nate were dominated by Rory, Bendo, RDA, etc. Even Clay Guida (a fighter small enough to make FW) beat a prime Nate. And of course Masvidal destroyed Nate.
Leon Scott was almost finished by semiretired unranked LW Nate Diaz in his last fight.
Interesting take, I didn't see it like that.
I think his defensive wrestling will hold up better than expected. My only question mark is his chin. But at the same time, I don't know if too much if too much is made of the Nate incident
He has zero submission wins in the UFC
Usman should win rather unremarkably, like the first time... but, I’d be a fool to think Marty hasn’t fallen prey to pushing the limits of what he can do with his hands.... let’s not forget what Burns put on Marty, I’m slightly worried.
It’s only a matter of time before good or even great chins expire and usually in a badly timed and unexpected instant, hopefully not this fight.
It is a huge stretch when a lot of people thought the fight was 29-28 Usman. Edwards has also improved a lot in the clinch and his TDD is much better now as well. Mas doesn't have the clinch game to have a chance at beating Usman, Edwards does.
Yeah, but you have to judge things relatively. Edwards has a much better shot of beating him than anyone else(maybe not Khamzat but he needs more wins to get a TS).
while I don't believe Dana (but hope it is true), the part that upsets me is that they are thinking of this match for "late Spring/Early summer".... That's too late for absolutely no reason at all!!!
I mean, the division is on fire, why delay so much??????
