Stroy should have no trouble at all with this fight, first round KO

Balls, I was hoping for Story vs Kos. I'm afraid this will be the end for Abedi in the UFC.

Abedi looks like a worldbeater for the first couple minutes of a fight. That won't be enough against Story.

Abedi will most likely be heading to the Super Fight League after this one.

Easy 11to IMO.....Story 1st round submission.

Story has the chin and grappling to handle him with ease.

If Story doesn't finish him I'll be surprised. This fight will make him look really good.

Bingo!

Abedi's fight with Head was one of the worst appearances I've seen...he gasses so damn easy and just gave Head the rear naked choke lol

One way to keep your job for a little longer, be a late fill in.

I'm not ready to give Story the win though, will be a good fight though.

why is abedi still in the ufc ? he's lucky to get this fight in my opinion, wild striker with a limited ground game who gasses quickly.

Taking fights on short notice sure doesn't hurt.

I say send him to SF if he loses and match him up with Manhoef.

When was the last time the UFC released a fighter?

The UFC has a roster well over 300 and seems to hold onto everybody and anybody now. I wonder when they will hit that number where they have to start subtracting.
