😇 Gilbert Burns left a prediction for the main fight of UFC 296

“Honestly, I think this is a good fight for Leon because Kamaru Usman has had a lot of success fighting Colby. Of course, Kamaru is also a fighter. But León is very long, he has a very large arm span. He will find it easy to defend against passing lanes and force Colby to fight on the feet. Leon is much more dangerous than Kamaru, he has a more refined punch. His hands are faster, good kicks. I believe he will be able to stop Covington’s takedowns and outperform him in the standing position due to his superior accuracy and striking power. So I think León will win. It won’t be easy, but I think he can handle it,” MMAJunkie quotes Burns.

💪🏽 Edwards assessed the likelihood of a fight with Belal Muhammad

“Is he the number one contender? Well I do not know. Would you fight him again? Absolutely, if he’s ready. As of today, no one stands out, but I hope to see a worthy candidate immediately after the fight with Covington and agree to a fight. I want to be an active champion. He was in good shape in September, but the UFC had other plans. They were already preparing for the Adesanya fight and other fights. 100% that I will easily defeat Muhammad. If he’s next, he’s fine, but does anyone want to see him fight now? Probably not, but I’ll have to beat him,” Edwards told MMA Fighting.

🏆 Makhachev would like to enter the cage after the Edwards-Covington fight

“I already said that if Colby is there, it will be more interesting. He has already expressed his desire to fight me. If he wins, this fight becomes even more real. I think there is no need to prepare for this. If they call me, I go into the cage. And there it will be possible to hold another fight,” reports “Championship” correspondent Alexander Frolov about Makhachev’s words.
