Edwards lost to Dennis Bermudez via unanimous decision (26-30, 26-30, 26-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Brooklyn.
ANALYSIS
Edwards got off to a quick start before things caved in on him late in Round 1. His gas tank quickly began to evaporate and Bermudez took control of the fight. Most concerning of all was Edwards's poor body language. He looked tired and defeated and he didn't work to get back into the bout. A product of Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series, Edwards is now officially 0-2 in the UFC. A release is possible here.

Earns UFC contract with fastest KO on Contender Series

Edwards earned a UFC contract with a victory over Austin Tweedy via KO (punch) at 0:28 of Round 1 on Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series.
ANALYSIS
On a night with five total stoppages, Edwards stood out enough to earn a contract by collecting the quickest finish of the evening. He only seemed to absorb one significant strike -- a leg kick -- before landing the overhand right that ended the fight. Edwards lost his second professional fight all the way back in 2014, but owns a strong 6-1 record with six KO/TKO victories to his name. He briefly appeared in Bellator with a win at Bellator 148, but has otherwise bounced around promotions. Standing at 5-foot-8, it might be tough sledding for Edwards in the 155-pound division, though he does possess a 72-inch reach. A move to featherweight may need to be in the cards for the 27-year-old.
