    Makes sense for both guys, no point in Leon sitting out for so many months. Its not fully confimed but looks like thats what Dana wants next for both guys

    I think Masvidal has what it takes after seeing Nate almost finish Leon. Edwards is gonna have to wrestle!!!

    Should be a good fight.

    Leon will need a minimum of 11 fights since his last loss in order to fight for the title.

    Leon will win and move himself further away from the title like only he can.

    Meanwhile in shitty Bellator he would be granted an immediate title shot like all ex UFC fighters do

    I got Masvidal.
    IMO he has better striking and enough grappling defense (defended very well against Maia and Usman) to mitigate Leon's grappling. I also think Leon has a questionable chin.

    But Masvidal is up there in age, and who knows how this Usman KO will affect him.

    Wonder if it'll be 5 rounds, can't imagine it not being on ppv. 268 only has 2 title fights so that's plausible. 269 has 3 title fights if Poirier/Oliveira is made official. If its added to 269 it would probably be 3 rounds, unless they just do 4 main-card fights, all 5-rounders.

    I see something must have angered you.

    What's on your mind this time little one? Deprived of Conor for too long? Jumping off the bandwagon like a good little boy?

    I don't think it's a bad idea for Leon. If he gets a win over a big name like Masvidal after already beating Nate then he should have significant traction going into a fight with Usman.

    Leon getting screwed again lol. And WW division stalled.

    Who is fighting Usman after he is done with Colbi?

    You have Luque there but Nate called him out. Burns for sure needs one more.

    I will laugh so hard if Masvidal starches him. This reminds me of Fitch trying to get a title shot. They just kept throwing people at him hoping he loses. I really hope he doesn't for his sake though.

    Good fight to keep them busy for now. Edwards should be nowhere near the title at this point.

    Nick Diaz will be getting the next shot at Usman/Colby winner if he beats Lawler.

    Leon shouldnt have fought Diaz. That fight didnt do him any favors. He completely outclassed him but diaz didnt get put away and had some success at the end of the fight. Diaz is a lightweight journeyman and Leon is supposed to be the #1 contender at welterweight.

    Im sure this post will somehow offend someone.

    Imagine being so clueless that people believe landing one punch in a 25 minute fight means you “almost finished” someone. He didn’t even knock him down, ffs.

    Whether it’s Diaz ballwashing or Edwards hate it’s fucking pathetically delusional. I guess every single fight someone almost finished the other guy. The level of casual fandom, and knowledge in here is astounding.
