    Here's my prediction:

    Leon tries to keep a safe distance from Chimaev, like Gaehtje tried to do with Khabib, in hopes of landing some clean shots on him. Khamzat clips him a couple of times. Then, to prove a point and to take GOATzat by surprise, Leon attempts a takedown which will fail.

    Khamzat counters with a takedown of his own, and Leon tries to use his 'rassling pedigree to get back up. He can't do shit. Suddenly, his facial expression changes to "oh shit !". Khamzat then proceeds to smesh him, eventually TKO'ing him in Round 2.

    It’s a really tough call. Such a HUUGE step up in competition.

    Style wise I favour Chimaev but he's so green and unproven that I am not sure at all.
    If Chimaev is champ material then he will wipe the flour with Leon if he's not he will maybe win a roudn then get dominated and lose a UD losing to Leon's ringcraft,fight IQ and cardio

    Tough to call. Khamzat is vastly unproven imo.
    Leaning towards Edwards via UD.

    Could you elaborate?

    Edwards is probably the most well rounded fighter in the division.
    If you favour Chimaev style wise on this fight, you should basically favour him against anyone at WW

    I think Edwards has all the tools to beat him, I'm intrigued to see Khamzat's cardio how that holds up.

    I think if it's over 5 rounds Leon could just pick him off.

    I'm not gonna be upset if either guy wins though so I'm pretty happy watching as a neutral.

    eventually it will come down to leon punching power,can he
    punish chimaev enough to make him hesitant and catch the flow? i don`t think so

    British guys suck at wrestling. Leon got taken down and mounted by Gunnar Nelson and I expect Chimaev to do the same except he smashes him.

    Leon clinch-centered fighting style forces Leon to get close to impose his game.
    I don't think he will only stay out of the pocket and pot shot like a Wonderboy could do.

    and clinching so much could open him up to wresting situation.
    And while I am not 100% certain, I strongly feel that Chimaev is the stronger,bigger and a better wrestler

    I think the wrestling will be too much. I want to see the hype train end but don’t think Leon can do it.

    Its amazing how overrated Edwards is. His best win was a boring UD over shot RDA who most guys in the top 15 would beat.

    I'm slightly thinking Leon by decision, but won't mind if Chimaev takes it. He probably will

    Leon lost to Kamaru and he didn’t put up much of a fight, he is not championship material

    Chimeav is still an unproven prospect. This fight will test where he's at in this division. Does he belong in the top 5 or not. Only time will tell. We all got to wait a little bit more than a month from now. Should be a very interesting fight, that so many questions will be answered.
