    I think this is a really winnable fight for Watson to be honest.

    Interesting. Hope Nedkov will be mindful of his conditionning because he gassed HARD in his last fight coming in the 3rd round...now with the cut it could be even worse.

    I like it. Watson's going down via KO in the first.

    He already had cardio issues at LHW, doing a hard cut to MW def wont help that problem

    This

    Plus, Nedkov isn't that great of a fighter, it boggles my mind the way people have built him up.

    He gassed trying to finish, think it was a bit of an adrenaline dump tbh.

    Nice Nedkov belongs @ 185, but he still needs to improve his cardio.

    Been thinking 185 was a better weight for him since the first time I saw him. He should do well there but is still a brawler and so any really skillful striker will pick him a apart

    I would have cares about this a year ago, but since coming to the UFC Stan is one of the sloppiest fighters I've ever seen signed.

    How about the possibility that his cardio issues come from the fact that he carried too much muscle for his frame?
    It's obvious that that he will not keep the same body and just cut extra 15lb of water weight. He will slim down and that may actually help his cardio.

    Good move and an interestng addition at 185lbs....not saying Nedkov's winning any titles but his wrestling, strength and punchng power (sloppy but he seems to have a heavy pair of hands) could be a tough task for many middleweights. He's gonna out-tough Watson for three rounds IMO, boring but effective UD.
