I sure hope Leon worked on his ground game since the Gunnar Nelson fight. Because he was stuck in quicksand when he was on his back.

Dude is top 3 at the worst 3 and he doesn't get the respect he has earned. Khamzat wins 3 fights vs none ranked guys the first 2 and another guy who might have been 15th rank. They try to push him for a title fight. I mean khamzats fights where fun to see and fast but come on now let's not get overly excited until he beats a top 5 guy. Needs to prove he can survive when its not going easy and those deep waters fights happen and then we will see. Guy didn't want to fight Edward's and he knows it. Scared period. Covid is an excuse. Healthy guy and I'm sure eats healthy so he could been back training in a week tops.

Colby made a big mistake by not taking the Leon Edwards fight right now. Obviously they found Leon a fight, but the BS Colby was talking; about why he wouldn’t take a fight with Leon; is garbage. If he just physically wasn’t ready to fight Leon and let the UFC know that he physically couldn’t take the fight - then okay, disregard all of this... But if he really didn’t take it because he thinks the fight is below his pay grade and doesn’t draw enough eyes and views - then I bet they sideline him from big fight opportunities for a while. He lost a title fight and has one win against a fighter at the end of his ropes since that loss; he hasn’t done anything since losing to Usman that makes it impossible not to push usman to run that fight back; and if Usman wants to wait to have a rematch with Colby like he is doing with Masvidal, then Colby needs to take another fight while Usman fights Masvidal - If Colby would have taken the fight with a 3rd ranked Leon and won, then he deserves to have the next title shot after Usman and masvidal fight, no matter what the UFC would have needed to push Usman to run the rematch next - but by declining that fight with a highly ranked Leon edwards, he puts himself in a bad spot and might not even get the rematch with Usman - at least for a couple years. With all of that being said about Colby putting himself in a bad spot with the ufc by declining the fight with Leon - I do understand why he feels the rematch with Usman should have happened instead of Usman fighting Masvidal. The Colby and Usman fight was one of the best fights we have seen in the UFC, and Colby deserves a chance to have a rematch with Usman and Usman knows that - It feels like Usman took Masvidal because it’s an easier fight and will draw the same attention. He choose the easy payday over the fight that would be brutal and risky - but the Colby fight is the right move if you are a champion that wants to prove you are the best and are not afraid of taking the toughest fights on your division. He can argue that he beat Colby and yata yata, but it was a brutal scrap and he didn’t get the job done with ease. Usman knows that his reputation and career would be overshadowed by Colby if he lost the belt to him, especially because of how loud Colby. So I do believe usman is scared of what a loss to Colby would do to his name. He absolutely chose to call out Masvidal seconds after beating Burns because he wanted to block any possible noise starting about another fight with Colby. If usman waited a day or two to call out a Masvidal fight, then too much talk about a Colby rematch would have started and it would of made it more obvious that Usman was making a weak decision as a champion to take the easier fight. Moral of the story; Colby made a bad decision but he is right about Usman being scared of that rematch - lame

Jorge is very entertaining but Usman is gonna be ready for Jorge in their sequel. Too many guys at the 170 level and Usman is very capable of beating all the rest. Colby has to fight and win to get back at Usman. Edwards, Khamzat and Burns are guys that Colby needs to beat.

Colby's excuse to not fight The Birmingham Bruiser Rocky Edwards is garbage 💯 . Colby's excuse is Rocky has faught nobodies so he doesn't deserve to fight him. How can Rocky Edwards fight these big names of the division if all of them names turn him down. 💯 Colby and the big names turn him down because he's to big of a risk and they all know it. I think if Colby was to grow a pair an fight Rocky , and if he ends up winning he jumps Masvidal for title shot. So it would be a win win if he beats Rocky but i cant see him winning and colby knows.

Covington gets a title shot often going to a decision with a past prime Lawler, gets beat by Usman, expects another title shot with a win over Woodley coming off 2 losses... 🙄 Fight Edwards, stay active and quit asking for charity.

Nobody wants to fight Edwards, because losing to him takes you straight out of title contention. He's the most dangerous contender at Welterweight. Just put him against Usman again, since everyone is ducking him.. But I REALLY want him vs Masvidal. But Masvidal too scared of the Jamaican badmon

His only “good” win is against RDA who hasn’t beat a legit 170 pounder since 2017. Not counting Kevin Lee, he was a lightweight moving up. And RDA is a pure lightweight. This guy needs to stop acting so entitled, go beat some credible names.

He’s for sure one of the best fighters In the division. Sucks that he’s such a good guy and doesn’t generate enough “buzz” to get the big fights he deserves. The UFC is a not just about the best fighters it seems to also be mostly about being the guy people want to see fight due to their antics

leon edwards the dillian whyte of ufc. 2 years and no title shot in sight. colby duckington . who else is there? unless he moves down to light, then leon is his biggest fight. stepup colby. probably scared of getting beat by another black guy. that's why he chose tyrone instead, easier fight.
