The UFC welterweight title is up for grabs this Saturday.

Champion Kamaru Usman returns to the octagon in the main event of UFC 278 in Salt Lake City to take on Leon Edwards in a rematch that has been in the works for years.

The two first fought at UFC on FOX 17 in December 2015. That night in Florida, Usman defeated Edwards to win a unanimous decision. Now, nearly seven years later, they’re bringing it back for the belt.

Prior to their rematch, MMA Junkie asked their UFC welterweight colleagues about how the rematch might go. Below are their predictions and analysis of the battle.

Vicente Luque

“I’ve got Kamaru as the winner, but either way, I think it’s going to be a good fight. Leon is always evolving. He is a very tough fighter and knows how to implement strategy in combat. He is also in good shape. So I don’t think it will be an easy fight, but for me Kamaru will remain champion.”

Santiago Ponzinibbio

“Everyone always has a chance when you step into the octagon, it’s always there. I think if Leon Edwards fights smart, he has the tools to win. He is a tall athlete with good distance, he is left-handed, close in his shots and he has a good wrestling game. I think he’s evolved a lot since they first fought. Edwards is dangerous, he also has knockout power, jiu-jitsu and good wrestling. He’s a good fighter. I really like this fight, but I see Usman as the favorite given the streak he has. It’s a good fight.

“I am thinking of a decision in favor of Usman.”

Michael Morales

“I don’t think (Edwards has a chance). Usman has too much power. in his hands, his feet, his wrestling, and he has worked very hard. I’ve been keeping a close eye on his game. I think he’s going to defend his title with a lot of motivation, and it’s his battle to lose. He just shouldn’t get frustrated like in the first fight against Masvidal, he got a little frustrated. But I think this title fight is in his favor.”
