Bookmaker Ratings: Prediction #1 –
Fight Result – Kamaru Usman to win
About seven years have passed since their first clash. During that period Kamaru Usman has won the UFC title and made five defences, while Leon Edwards has never lost with nine victories. Once again, it’s worth noting that Leon’s success has amazed everyone. This is confirmed by the objective assessment, according to which it was nothing more than luck. Throughout the encounter, ‘’Rocky’’ was losing points, committing tons of mistakes. Could he get rid of them in such a short time? It’s hard to answer. Still, after the first round given by Usman, Edwards’ chances of winning were shrinking by the second.
Preliminary review and match prediction for Leon Edwards vs Kamaru Usman
Leon Edwards: Rocky
The reigning welterweight division champion has been on his way to the title for three years, at times even blackmailing the promotion. In the end, everything worked out well for “Rocky”.
Only Edwards himself doesn’t know yet how much harder it is to prove the champion than to win it. The Briton is regarded as one of the best punchers. His timing, footwork, accuracy, and punching power are all perfected, although he came into the organisation as a wrestler. Given the above, it is difficult to answer the question of whether skill helped him strike the coveted lanky punch or fortune.

Kamaru Usman: The Nigerian Nightmare
American-Nigerian fighter Kamaru ‘’The Nigerian Nightmare’’ Usman is regarded as one of the most successful MMA fighters of modern times. Kamaru was one step away from a new title defence record, but it did not happen. In his post-fight interview, Usman stressed that the fight was morally difficult for him. Now he is loaded, ready to regain the title. In addition, many have criticised Kamaru for his ‘’cautious style’’ of defending his belts in recent years. Perhaps this will give reason to shut up all detractors: no belt, no pressure.
