I'm not disagreeing with any of that. I think Edgar is extremely powerful for his size, and has decent pop to his punch in spite of his technique. I don't think he'll ever become a consistent one punch knock out artist. I think he will dish out some beat downs against the cage, or some violent ground and pound.
