I want it to be competitive but I can't see it unless Charles gets on top and can somehow keep Frankie down... which I can't see happening because I haven't seen it happen lately.

I expect this fight to be one sided in Edgar favor it might not go the distance either I could see Edgar eventually overwhelming Oliveira.

This should be an easy win for Edgar. Oliveira has folded against lesser fighters. What he has going for him is that he is young and can learn to face adversity better, and Edgar is more of a points fighter. He can hit hard, don't get me wrong, but he's more of a points guy.

That being said, it should be a comfortable win for Edgar.

I'd say Edgar wins 30-27 in a comfortable decision by using his movement and footwork to outbox Oliveira. Edgar is just a level higher than Oliveira as a fighter, Charles isn't elite (yet).

The height difference is huge. The reach too. Maybe this fight will be trickier than we think.

Frankie via being a way better fighter. A stoppage is probable.

Frankie by TKO

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

Eh, i'm not sure how much it will help Oliveira. It is around a 5 inch advantage, but I don't think it will have too much of an impact with how much Edgar moves. I would be more worried if Edgar was the kind of fighter who stood right in front of people.
