This has been a long time coming since Cowboy left Jackson's:Battle of the Legends
I'm glad that Leon is finally hungry enough to fight someone. Belal shouldn't be on his level but he's scrappy enough and pushes the pace enough to make Leon work. I was really expecting Leon to skip out and wait on Chimaev or to try to luck into a title shot like he's been doing for the last two years.
I think Edwards is horribly over rated. He's somehow ranked 4th with 1 win in the top 10 of the division, and that guy is ranked 10th. Please bear in mind, that when I say over rated I mean in the sense that he's ranked 4th and in line for a title shot when something like 8 or 9 would be a more accurate ranking. All that being said, this fight has me very interested.Edwards has been rebooked after the Chimaev fight was cancelled. Muhammad is the real deal but this is a jump in competition. Should be an entertaining scrap.
Yeah, I just looked that up. The Lee fight was his most recent one and that took place Nov 2019. Going to be interesting to see if Gregor is as gung-ho aggressive or if he will be more tentative after that punishing KO he suffered. You also gotta wonder if his chin will be more compromised, which is a big deal for his head-first, eat punches to get the clinch style.Is this Gregor's first fight since Kevin Lee wrecked him?
