17 March 2018/1500ET
TV: O2 Arena
UFC is back in the United Kingdom and we will see British fighter Leon Edwards in action. Edwards will be taking on Polish MMA fighter, Peter Sobotta, in a battle in the Welterweight division. Both teams will be very desperate to win this fight and as a result, we should see a great contest.
Leon Edwards enters the octagon with a record of 14 wins and 3 losses. At the age of only 26, there are huge expectations on the fighter and a win in front of his home crowd will do him wonders. The last 4 times Leon Edwards has fought in the UFC, he has won all 4 times and this form will be a boost for the young fighter. It is interesting to note that most of Edward’s fights have been won by decision while he has never been knocked out.

On the other side of the ring, Peter Sobotta will look to use all his experience in this fight. The Polish fighter had been fighting professionally for over 10 years he will look to use that to his aid. Sobotta is known for his submissions which have won him most of his professional fights. It will be important for Peter Sobotta to start well since the crowd will be against him.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to predict that Leon Edwards wins this fight. The UK based fighter is at home and has been looking better in the lead up to this fight. We should be getting a good enough price for him to win so that will most likely be the best bet.
