Also to take into consideration is the altitude won’t be the same. No idea who wins but i think the next fight is going to be one sided in either direction.

If I was Usman, I’d get an injury let Khamzat have to fight Edwards for the title and come in after those guys already went to war
Yeah but Usman's not a p*ssy so he's not gonna do that he'll 100% want to get this shyt back immediately he was literally 1 minute away from a fairly dominant title defense

Leon mentioned his body not responding multiple times in post fight presser. Said it wasn’t a cardio issue just something was off. Didn’t directly say the altitude until the very end. Had one of his worst performances and Usman had a great 3-4 rounds and still got his soul took.

I can agree with that.

But the top 5 is a different ball game. Khamzat saw that first hand.. and Leon ain’t no slouch.
True, I think khazmat being bigger( :dame: ) than Leon, I think he's a better striker than Usman and a way better wrestler. It's going give Leon problems. He's not getting up from khazmat takedowns like he was Usman

Usman is getting rematch immediately and deserves it. Even though he got knocked out with a kick overall he came out looking good in this.

Other than the first round when edwards took him down he had noting for Usman on the ground or standing up. Usman dominated, I don't think the the loss or edwards are in his head. If anything the pressure is on edwards because he did get dominated other than that kick and he was getting his ass whooped every round including the 5th with it was one minute left. he has to prove it was not a fluke.

Again the thing I HATE about the UFC is the ignorant fans want rock em, sock em robot style fighting. The fighters often times let the crowd dictate the fight, usman needs better head defense but other than that he should smother him, and fight his fight.

Nobody wants to see a lay and pray style. Foot stomps and knees to the thigh on the cage. At the end of the day it’s still entertainment.

Usman fought a good fight, he just got caught. One mistake

As long as Dana continues to only appeal to this crowd:
