Geoff Neal, UFC welterweight: I got Usman on that one.

Vicente Luque, UFC welterweight: Man, I’m going to go with Usman. I think it will be an exciting fight as Edwards has a lot of tools to challenge Usman but the champ is just too dominant.

Sean Woodson, UFC featherweight: Crazy enough, I actually think Edwards can get it done. I think Usman is just looking past him and Edwards has all the tools to get a decision win.

Terrance McKinney, UFC lightweight: I just have a weird feeling Edwards will get the upset here as maybe Usman is overlooking him.

Jason Witt, UFC welterweight: Edwards has earned his way here but Usman has gotten better every fight. When he won the belt I didn’t think he’d be the greatest welterweight ever or get near GSP’s resume, but he keeps evolving and is getting close to that. I think Usman defends his belt again.

Drakkar Klose, UFC lightweight: I want to see some new blood so I’m going with Edwards.

Sam Alvey, UFC middleweight: Usman is the better fighter and although every reign seems to end at some point I just don’t think Edwards is the person to end it.

Jay Perrin, UFC bantamweight: I think people clown on Leon a little too much. Usman has improved a ton but that fight is a lot closer than people think I think Usman edges out a very close decision. His hands have a long way but his wrestling will be the difference here.

Devin Clark, UFC light heavyweight: I think Usman will defend his belt, Edwards is really good I just think Usman is better.

David Onama, UFC featherweight: Usman by decision or late stoppage.
