    One hell of a fight right there.

    Leon is dangerous, but Gunnar is... Well, also dangerous it'll be interesting to see for sure. If I remember well, Leon has really good take down defence so this might be a nice little standing fight with karate and general kickboxing.

    London is getting a hell of a card. Top billed 3 is gonna be Till/Masvidal, Edwards/Nelson and Reyes/Oezdemir. Damn good.

    The voting so far is one sided. Will this really be a blowout win for Nelson?

    Cool. This is a pleasant surprise.
    I like both but I like Gunnar a little bit more.
    Leon Edwards is cool enough. Some of his fights are a bit grinding though.
    Gunnars last fight when he landed that precision elbow on Cowboy Oliveira.... dayyyyyum!! Nice to be reminded how competent Gunnar is when he isn't being flattened by juicy Argentinians.
    Gunnar would be amazing in a 165 division.

    Edwards is a striker, if he goes back to trying to grapple and wrestle his way to winning, he's gonna get tapped out. But he's bigger and a more technical striker than Gunni, he can win the decision here.

    Infact I think he should be a considerably big favourite here.

    Had a feeling that Edwards was gonna end up on this card. I think he beats Gunnar here, he looked awesome against Cerrone.

    Gunni via fatality on the ground.
